Kate was very close to the Lord and was a very kind, caring and compassionate person. She had many, many friends and loved her family very much. She had a great sense of humor and kept everyone laughing. 

She graduated from the Central Business College in Kansas City. She was a caregiver for Baptist Memorial Hospital. She loved music and taught herself how to play the piano and organ by ear without a single lesson. 

She will be greatly missed.
