Kathy was a vibrant and free-spirited woman who loved music (rock and roll), dancing and spending time with her grandchildren.  In her free time, she would garden, quilt and sew.  She loved the ocean and playing in the waves. She was the most honest, bold and beautiful soul with wild beautiful eyes and was always looking forward to the next adventure.  She encouraged everyone to follow their dreams and be themselves.  She will be missed by all that were honored to have met and known her.
