    I am so sorry to learn of Katie's passing. She was a special lady and will be missed by all. Several years she called me on my birthday and I don't know how she knew. She was never too busy to stop and talk to me when we met in a store. My life was blessed by having known her. May God be with all the family at this sad time.

    We are so very sorry for your loss. Katy was a unique woman with lots of talents. I really enjoyed her sweets that she baked. I (Pat) knew her so many years ago at the PD and then at the MVD. She always had a smile and a good word. I know you all will miss her so. Our thoughts and prayers are with you!

    I will miss "Gran" Katie. She wasnt my gran but my best friend Shan's gran. Anytime I was at her house she always treated me as one of her own. She will be missed but remembered always.

    Ms Katie was a beautiful, fun person. We spent a lot of moments together. Going to miss changing your batteries, light bulbs and setting your clocks. Love ya girl!

    The world has lost a spitfire of a lady. Katie was always full of joy and energy. I can't think of a time when she wasn't smiling, a trait that many others of us (myself included) need to adopt. She was small in stature, but tall in life. May precious memories of her bring you comfort now and in the days ahead. Our sincere condolences.
