I met Kathy working in Cosmetics @ Carson Pirie Scott. She was a genuine lady in the true sense of the word. Compassionate, caring, supportive and classy. I recall her excitement each time we received new shipments of lipsticks ... she was like a child on Christmas morning. I enjoyed many lunches with her at our favorite Tearoom. Her faith was moving. I was honored to have her read at my own wedding. She loved her family and beamed with pride talking about you all, especially her grandson Carter. To the family your hearts are breaking right now ... remember to celebrate the joy of Kathy's life as you mourn. Heaven gained another Angel. I am truly sorry for your loss. Healing Hugs ~ Cherie
