One of the most unforgettable characters I ever met. Lively, bossy, funny, smart, all of that. I gave a wedding breakfast when Charles and Diana married. Katsch and her mother(who was visiting) showed up at 4:30 a.m. dressed to the nines, hats and all. Katsch was the only contemporary I knew who owned one of those fox fur pieces that was the actual fox. It belonged to her mother and Katsch rarely wore it, even back then, but when she did, it was the topic of conversation. (the fox was draped around the shoulders and attached by it's mouth to it's tail. Sounds gruesome and it was, in a way, but it was of the day. We shared many wonderful family adventures and I particularly remember our stay at the St. James and Albany hotel in Paris in 1972.
I left Boston nearly thirty years ago but my memories of her are as vivid as if it were yesterday. She was a dynamo.
