Katherine's most treasured times were planning
and going on family vacations. She loved Hawaii and
the family's Riverhouse the most! Every day would
be carefully thought out and mapped out. We would
make the most of every day, visiting all of the sites,
playing at all of the attractions and having family
meals together. The 4th of July at the Riverhouse was
a valued time we spent together. She always made sure
that we had enough fireworks for the best display in
the neighborhood and excellent meals which always
included hot dogs and smores by the fire one night
and barbecued spare ribs the next.
She was also very involved throughout most of her
life in PEO which is a sisterhood that she joined as a
young adult and maintained an active participant and
leader at times for different fundraisers and planning
Her other passions included playing bridge and almost any card game including Phase 10 with the grandchildren, reading, going to the casino (occasionally), and keeping up on the news and favorite tv shows. Gardening, history and teaching are also things she enjoyed throughout our life.
Katherine was a substitute teacher by career
and focused her jobs in the areas of English and
Journalism. She enjoyed this career choice because
she took pride in teaching young people and it allowed
her to take time off for her family if needed.
