  2. So very sorry to hear of Kathy’s passing. I knew her when I worked at Dr. Tim Pringle’s office and she was a patient.

  3. My sincere condolences on the loss of dear Kathy. More than 50 years ago Kathy and I and eleven other “girls” trained together and lived together. A very close bond was formed and even though we all went our separate ways in life we had occasional reunions. It was always as though we had never been separated when we came together at those times. I will miss her on those occasions and I know all the “girls” will.

  4. Dear ones
    Kathy and I had the joy of sharing 3 beautiful granddaughter that adored her.
    When she had her annual long visit in Oct she was smiling and giggling with the little ones the entire time
    Liz and Greg took her everywhere and it was a joy filled family time. We all miss her and will see her love forever reflected in the smiles of Violet, Maddie and Audrey
    God Bless you all

  5. I worked with Kathy for many years at St. Joe’s teaching CPR. We must of taught hundreds of people over the course of several years. She always made it interesting and fun and was a wonderful worker. My deepest sympathy to her family members.
