After attending culinary school and becoming a chef, Kathryn was employed by several elderly housing complexes such as Tower One Jewish Home for the Aged, and Ella B. Scantleberry Senior Living to name a few. Her true passion however was cooking for her family and friends, who all said there was nothing better than Aunt Kate's rum cake and rice pudding. She also enjoyed sewing, traveling, the casinos, and golfing. But above all else, she truly loved her family. Kathryn's family would like to give a special heartfelt thanks to all of the staff at Milford Hospital's ICU, and Memorial 3 West Hospice Wing.
