I’m so sorry about the loss of Kathy. The obit picture is just how I remember her. As a kid, Terri and I so enjoyed our trips to Oakville, IA. As nonfarm kids, we were so amazed by everything and thought our Iowa cousins were such lucky kids! They had just wonderful, kind, fun parents who had endless patience AND they lived on a farm!!! How cool for us!!! Our time was absolutely magical and I will always love, remember and be thankful for the time there!

My deepest sympathy to all.

I am sorry to hear about Kathy's passing. She was a great person all around. I enjoyed working with her at Midwest Child Care. Our once a month get together were something I know we looked forward to .

My condolences to David and family for the loss of such a special lady. I was lucky to get to know both as antique dealers at the Greef General Store in Bentonsport. I am glad for the chance to have known Kathy and wish the family well.
