It's with great sadness to hear of Kathy's passing. Steve, you're in my heart and prayers. Kathy and I had many "adventures" together. I will always be grateful for her being there during my mom's ordeal and driving the car back from California. I hope Kathy's at peace, she will be missed.

I knew Katherine for more than many years. She was the first person I worked with when I started working at Northwestern. She was a wonderful person, understanding and helpful. I left her department after working with her for about a year but would go back and visit with her many times. She always talk about her husband and let everyone she comes in contact with how much she loved him. I would like to extend my condolences to Katherine's husband and family. May God give you continue peace in such a time. God bless!

I was very sad to hear about Kathy. We never met, but we worked together for many, many years - trying to resolved verification requests for faculty. She laughed lots during our numerous phone conversations and her attitude was great. My sincere condolences to her family.Marcie Weiss Assistant Dean for Faculty Affairs Feinberg School of Medicine Northwestern University

Kathy always smiled when she greeted me at work. She helped me cheerfully every time I needed her. We talked of our dogs and traded stories and pictures. I will donate to a group I volunteer for, PAWS Critter Crossing, in her name. I hope your grief is eased by knowing how dear she was to so many of us at Northwestern.
