Kate was a graduate of Longview High School, Texas A & M University, and the University of Texas Medical Branch School of Allied Health. She was dedicated to her chosen profession of physical therapy and practiced for over thirty years in varied settings in Colorado and Texas. Her passion over much of her career was working with senior citizens and facilitating their optimal independence and quality of life. She was loved and respected by her patients and colleagues.
Kate loved music and played guitar in a local church band as a teenager. She lived and worked for many years in Colorado and enjoyed skiing and ice skating. She loved being in nature and Colorado's mountains brought her great joy.
More recently after moving to Texas, she volunteered at the Adult Education Center in Pearland, helping adult learners improve their literacy skills and advance in their education and vocation choices. Kate was also a skilled quilter who made numerous beautiful quilts for friends and family.
Kate was devoted to her friends and family. She was always ready if anyone needed help or support. Kate was courageous in the face of challenge and generous to all around her. She was a thoughtful and wise friend and sister and aunt who we miss very much. She loved special trips with her sisters and loved being with her nieces and nephews and their children. Her lifelong faith sustained her and she was filled with light and love all of her days.
