I am so sorry to hear about Kathy. I first met her in high school and later reconnected at Karns City. She was always so friendly and ready to laugh. I’m glad she was with family because I know how important you were to her.
Deepest sympathies.

I was so sorry to read the news about Kathy in last night’s BUTLER EAGLE. I was the librarian at Karns City High School for 35 years, and many years ago Kathy worked from one of the library rooms when she was at the school. I saw and spoke with her often and remember what a friendly and easygoing person she was. My sympathies to all of her family.

Condolence from Amy on June 10th, 2017 6:40 pm

Thank you, Doreen
