            Kathy was a vital part of Chatham having worked for a period of ten years with the Cape Cod Chronicle after which she worked for the Vernon Company. Kathy was a very active and welcomed lady in the town of Chatham.  Her grace and poise radiated to every life she touched.  A wonderful mother and a loving grandmother. She was a friend to all who were fortunate to have known her and will be sorely missed by family and friends. A funeral was held on the beautiful Isle of Chiloe overlooking the majestic waters of Rio Pudeto that so reminded her of her beloved Chatham.
