  1. Kathy, Janice Wheeler, and I were best of friends growing up. She was in my home church ward. I always admired how smart she was! She had a profound influence on me to study more and try harder. I ran into her at Alta View Hospital a few years ago and had fun visiting about all the years that have passed. A great lady!!!! Linda Hansen Perry

  2. Comments from Classmates:

    Jean Barnum Holden: I still remember her from 6th grade and her nickname was Kathy long legs....she will be missed.

    Joyce Keller: I remember from high school that Kathy and I connected that our birthday was the same day -- I don't remember making the connection that we were both born at Cooley Hospital--but highly likely same day same hospital!

    Lois J Craghead Reese: She was the tallest in all our grade school classes. R.I.P. Kathy

    Gary Dunn: So sad, but she is much happier I'm sure. Miss you Kathy! She was always taller than me, but I told her in jr. high that I would be taller by the time we were seniors. I reached 5' 11" and she told me she was 5' 11 1/2"! I guess I lost!

  3. I am a hairdressers in Brigham City and went over to the mortuary today and fixed a lady's hair. Which I do quite often. I had no idea it was Kathryn until I just read this. They just told me her last name, which was not familiar. WOW in shock!!!
    Debby Rasmussen Braegger!!!

  4. Monica Madson Harrison: I remember Kathy well. What sweet memories I have of her before I moved. I'm sure she will be missed.

    Ronda Hardy: Sorry to hear this news

    Renee Francis Fulmer: so sad

    Class of 1969: Sending our Condolences to Kathy's family from her High School Classmates. We've placed her on our class memorial page and wish her well on her next journey.
