She loved family and holidays spent together. Kathy spread Joy wherever
she went. She could always make someone smile. She would give the shirt off of
her back to help someone else. Kathy was employed for a number of years at Boyds
Drug Mart in Bakken Park. She took great pride in her job. She loved her
coworkers, and the customers she served.
Everyone who knew Kathy, knew she was the most kind and generous person! She loved with her whole heart. She had a beautiful, pure soul. Kathy was a great momma., wife, auntie, sister and friend. She loved everyone as if they were family. Kathy was always willing to help anyone, at any time. She loved life and lived to the fullest. Even on the hardest days she always had a positive outlook and kept her head held high. She was so kind and loving no matter the circumstances, but Kathy also wouldn’t put up with any kind of nonsense, no matter who it was coming from. Kathy is the glue that holds this family together. She always kept us going. Kathy will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
