Hey Cousin Katy, this year I gave a scholarship to a 8th grade male student in your honor, God put this student in my life & he culminated!! I had to make sure to share the love of God with him & what an honor it is to remember you & share what a beautiful person you were & the struggles you had you over came & was successful, a wonderful mom, a loving wife, & a teacher who cared so much for her students!! June 2014, 2nd Annual Memorial Scholarship, I will continue to do this & choose that student that God puts in my life, & He will know which 8th grader deserves this recognition(: love you cousin Katy!

Cousin Katy, I love this pic of you, so full of life, bright smile & a twinkle in your eye...you touched lives with a helping hand & even though the work load of IEP's got over whelming you rose above them never letting it get you down & accelerated forward, as your daughter & husband watched you accomplish so much & was a role model in what you set your mind to, you can conquer your goals. I will miss our little FB chats.. You & cousin Aaron were like peas in a pod, you both have come along ways & I am proud to say that we are family. The Bible say to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord, I know Katy is there in Heaven with Jesus & "GRANNY" they get to chat about us & you cousin Aaron ( Granny's doodles) & her great grandaughter Alya, Kimberlynn my 6 yr. old daughter was born on Granny's birthday Dec. 14th (how cool is that)...we will see them again but not now cous Aaron, NOT until our kids are all grown up & successful and we are well in our 80's, maybe 90's....when it's time, we will have a BIG family reunion!! xxooxx (REPOSTED) w/my information

It was my pleasure to work with Katy at Heritage. We were both special ed teachers and, as such, were able to share our insights with each other. I had gotten in touch with her again through Facebook. I was so happy to see how absolutely radiant she looked when she was with Ayla and could feel through her words how much she loved Ayla and how much she loved being her mom. I am sorry that you have to endure such an incredible loss. I know that you will all be together again some day.

I was so shocked to hear of Katy's passing! I had just conversed with her via facebook a few weeks ago regarding some students we had in common. We met at Chapman and became good friends....will always remember her smile that lit up her face, her overwhelming love for her new husband and precious children, and her drive to fine tune her instruction and case management. You have touched many and will be missed greatly!

I was shocked and saddened by this news. Katy and I worked closely when I was principal of Heritage High School. She was always such an advocate for her students. My prayers and thoughts are with the family and friends.

I had the honor of working with Ms. Crowley at Heritage High School. I found her to be a professional of the highest quality and a person of the best character. I was deeply saddened to hear about her passing. She will be missed by all here at Heritage.

I am so sorry for your loss. I was friends with Katy during undergrad. We were the single moms who struggled together. My son Nicholas and I spent a great deal of time with her and Gabe. She was a beautiful person both inside and out. She will be missed.
