A long-time resident of Great Bend, Kathy was a secretary at Great Bend High School. She previously had worked as a bookkeeper for Kelly'’s Water Well Service and as a bank teller at several local banks. She was a member of Prince of Peace Parish at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church and the Altar Society. She enjoyed spending time with her friends and coworkers, but especially loved spending time with her family.
