Kathy, who unofficially became “Nan” when her first grandchild was born, was a Navy wife, a homemaker and a devoted mother, grandmother and great grandmother to her family. She was filled with love and was always taking care of everyone whether it be immediate family, her extended family, or neighbors.

Kathy is survived by her husband of 64 years Frederick, her two sons, Fred Jr (Cynthia) and Steve (Debby), four grandchildren- Steve Jr (Cara), Matthew (Christy), Scott (Jessi) and Heather Eure (Sam).
