Memories Timeline


  1. We are deeply sorry for your loss ~ Conway-Markham Funeral Home – New Hampton

  2. Kathy would stay at my house or I would stay at hers. I remember after high school graduation I went home with her to join her celebration. She visited me at the College of St. Teresa in Winona. We missed curfew and were locked out of the dorm by the nuns. Luckily I had a hippy type friend and we crashed at her pad.

  3. My favorite memories of Kathie were my children disappearing to her house almost everyday! She always had apple juice ready wnd loved their sleepovers! Her family are in our thoughts the neighborhood wont be 5he same without her.

  4. We have been heartbroken here at TLC. We truly will miss our Grandma Kathy. So was always such an asset to the Foster Grandparents Program and TLC. She WILL be missed, but I know her tenderness she showed daily will live on with our children….and Staff. Prayers for all- Sue McDonald

  5. I want to offer my sincerest condolences to all the friends and family. I do know how sad it is to lose a loved one, such as a sister, to death. Cherish the good memories and never forget what a kind loving person Kathy was! Thinking of you these days!…. Angie

  6. Extending our deepest sympathy to Kathy’s family. She was such a kind, gentle soul, and she and Frank were such good neighbors to us. May she Rest In Peace.
