Kathy had many jobs throughout her lifetime and had worked for the past 22 years for LabCorp in the Northland OB/GYN clinic in Liberty, Missouri as a Phlebotomist.

She loved to garden and share the photos of her flowers with others, sometimes even giving some of her flowers to others to grow and enjoy. Kathy loved her grandchildren and participated in any event she could when she visited them or they were in the Kansas City area. She was very proud of all of them and loved to show off their pictures.
