After the death of her husband in 1976, Katherine dedicated her life to one of service, ministering to those in need and especially befriending those without family. In 2001, she relocated to Jacksonville with her granddaughter's family after a serious stroke and developing Dementia. When she wasn't enjoying her grandchildren, helping in the kitchen or ironing, she was reading her Bible, saying her prayers and typing letters of encouragement to loved ones and other Seniors without family. She loved her Lord, her Bible, her family and being a blessing whenever and wherever she could and her spirit of love & generosity will be greatly missed, though her impact will live on in the lives she touched.
