She grew up in South Bend, where she graduated from Adams High School in 1968.

Together they raised a family, taught Sunday school, and sang in the choir at St. Stanislaus Church. Kathy loved to travel, spend time with her family and friends, and work numerous craft projects for different craft fairs.
