Henry and Christine! My sincere sympathy on the loss of your mother. She was such a force of nature and withstood so much, it is hard to believe. Will miss her smiling at the picnics and the stories my mom, Johanna Payne, would tell me after talking to her! May God grant her the rest she earned after all she had been through! And may your memories comfort and bless you both! Elizabeth Holdren (Betty)

We are truly going to miss Tante Kathi. Her quick wit and laughter at family gatherings, her sharp mind and ability to cut to the point, her feisty attitude and pride in it, her resilience despite the challenges her health threw at her... all that and so much more. I'm thankful we were able to spend time with her recently. Henry & Christine, know that we are thinking of you with love and prayers.

Katherine was more than a neighbor, she was a true friend and "Grandma", not only to my daughter Laura, but to all of my nieces and nephews and countless other neighborhood children. I will miss our afternoon teas and talks, but most of all, I will miss her. She was truly special, and I was blessed to have had her in my life. Rest in peace my dear friend. Christine and Henry, my thoughts and prayers are with you during this most difficult time. God be with you
