My deepest sympathy for you loss. I loved Katherine. I worked in the lab for 33 years and was Katherine in the halls and business office almost every day. She was such a wonderful lady. I know you will miss her so much. I know her little dogs will be lost without her also. I can no longer drive so if I cannot make it to the funeral home, please know you and Katherine are in my prayers. My heart is very sad. Goodbye Katherine.

Bev, Lisa and family, Your Mom was a wonderful lady. She was very supportive during my Mom's illness and after her death. I always enjoyed our lengthy phone conversations. She was so very proud of her family. She will be missed. Just try to remember all the special memories you shared with her. With sincere sympathy, Sally

I have known Katherine for 20 years, since joining the IBYC family. She became a friend, always had a smile, insisted on baking "experiments" for me to try - DESSERTS mostly - , opened her home to me for family dinners when I had no ability to be with my own family for a holiday, and always had a kind word. She will be missed! Thank you, Katherine, for making me feel welcome in Springfield and in your family. You were a class act! Fondly, Rebecca
