Kathryn and I lived one block apart. We played together from grade school on. She loved to tease me and her name for me was "Nasty" Neusty. She was unforgettable. May you rest or have lots of fun on your new adventure. Kay Neustrom Carlson

Kathryn and I went to school together since Crestwood Elementary. We were Brownies and Girl Scouts together as her wonderful mother was our leader! Kathryn and I went to scout camp together for years and had a lot of fun times and experiences. We did all the merits badges together including learning to ride a horse! The picture I will always have of Kathryn in my mind is the day they were announcing the girls that were going to be the new Rhythmetts at LVHS. Kathryn sat in front of me in one of our classes and I remember her turning around and me wishing her LUCK and seeing her wonderful, smiling face full of anticipation and hope. She was selected and was a wonderful addition to the group. We wrote for a few years after our high school graduation and talked a few times on the phone. The last time we spoke she was living in NY. I am sorry we lost contact. There were a couple of people I really wanted to see at our 50th LVHS class reunion and Kathryn was one of them. Until I get there, watch out for those screaming Peacocks Kathryn! Thanks for the memories. With love, Kay

Loved her talent to write and her sense of humor. I am very grateful for the love she had in life and for those who gave her that love. Rest In Peace Kathryn. May your slumber be filled with bright light, warm embraces, and joyous reunions.

My condolences to Kathryn's family. My sadness is overwhelming. Kathryn was my editor on our high school paper. She was an excellent writer, composing many controversial editorials for our paper. I remember proofreading galley sheets with her to meet the next day deadline. She was quiet and somewhat shy until I got to know her. She had a wonderful sense of humor and we shared lots of laughs on those evenings.
Kathryn went to our advisor and asked if we could paint the newspaper office. Of course Mrs. Young wanted to know the color. Kathryn told her a pale yellow would be nice.
Her request was approved and a couple of us went to work one Saturday. What Kathryn failed to tell the advisor was the red and blue balloon type circles that she added to the wall behind her desk. Not many just a few to brighten it up, she said. That was her humor and we all loved her for it.
Eternal peace is now yours, Kathryn, rest well.

Kathryn was a very kind; witty and warm person. I shall never forget how sweet she was to me when I felt out of place and sad. She was an old soul and I hope her life was filled with love and warmth.xx

My beautiful Aunt Kathryn
Many of my memories of Aunt Kathryn involve humor. We enjoyed making each other laugh. She could even bring a smile to my face on my father's (her brother's) first birthday following his death when she texted me: "Happy Birthday to our Geronimo John!" And that was a reference to the most wonderful anecdote she wrote for his funeral, which I will always cherish. Kathryn had a gift for words evident in her writing, poetry and music. I chuckle every time I remember how she got jealous of my efforts to foster Halayna's singing and songwriting career until she realized Halayna is my daughter! We both had a good laugh over that :) She loved her Taco Bell, purple and yellow flowers and movies. Oh, how we loved discussing movies, from old classics to the latest and greatest! I know she is finally getting her own happy ending, being reunited with loved ones who passed on before her, but those of us left behind will surely miss her. I love you, Aunt Kathryn.
