together. They were blessed with two children, Greg and Traci, and 4

grandchildren, Mitchell, Katy, Nikki and Mandi. Katherine spent many

years working in HR. She began her career at Southwestern Bell, then

moved with her family to Denver, Colorado where she worked for AT&T.

She decided to take an early retirement in 1990 when she and her

family moved to Tucson, Arizona.

Eventually their family made their way back to Texas in 1993 and that

is where they planted their roots. Katherine’s church home was New

loved her slot machines! But even more than that, she loved her

family. She dedicated her life to her husband, children and

grandchildren. She was a kind and giving person, and she had a life

well lived. She will be very missed.
