Kathy was older than I am but I do remember being out on Lincoln Street as a kid and talking to her. She is part of my childhood memories of Fall Creek.

Kathleen attended Fall Creek Elementary school the same years as I and in my memory she seems larger than ,and very Motherly toward the rest us . Like an adult or a Mother hen watching over her chicks. When you are 5 or 6 you notice things like that.
