As Kathy’s neighbor, I often saw her heading off to teach or coming home from her day. She always dressed in a stylish outfit as she headed down the sidewalk with a peppy walk and a smile on her face. I could tell she enjoyed her life. She was grateful for being able to teach and was devoted and proud of her wonderful family. May God bless Kathy’s family and hold them all in His Arms.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Dear Kathy, May God Bless and keep you. The work you have done has made a impact on many lives. Teaching was the calling in which you answered! The lessons of hope, encouragement, understanding, and truly believing in students who didn’t believe in themselves. As a co-worker I knew I could turn to you for support and you of course would provide answers to my questions with great knowledge.
