She remained busy to the end, still serving at Blessed Sacrament as Co-President of the Senior Group and Liaison Officer of the Christian Women’s Society; Church Commissioner of MACCW and MACCW Dist. 16; Knights of Columbus #524 Auxilliary member, Co-Chair of the Jackson Park 4th of July Committee and ad committee member of MAHNU.

Her influence will live on in the lives of many. A sincere thank you to the staff at Clement Manor for the loving care given Kathryn. In lieu of flowers, memorials to the family for a scholarship fund in Kathryn’s honor are suggested.
