  1. Our prayers and sympathy to all Kate’s family and friends.
    Kate and I (Mary) have been friends since 1st grade Catholic School.
    We never stopped communicating with each other. No matter how many miles were between us, cards, letters. phone calls, and in person visits, when possible, kept us connected.
    I consider Kate my spiritual mentor and director.
    In the fall of 1962 when I began dating Larry, Kate became his friend too, and she has always been there for both of us ever since.

  2. I have lost a dear sweet friend. I know Katie has joined her Heavenly family. My memories of our times together will always remain in my heart. Be at peace, my dear Katie🙏❤️

  3. I remember Katie as a friend with a smile, and the ability to laugh at my dumb jokes. I was not suprised to hear that she became a nun, and was glad she made it to one of our reunions. My condolences to the family. She was special and will be missed.
