"Katie" grew up in Detroit and attended the University of Michigan, majoring in Dental Hygiene. She and Bob, who had a 39-year career with the Fisher Body Division of General Motors, were married in 1940 and lived in Detroit, Flint, Columbus, Syracuse and Cleveland prior to retiring to St. Petersburg and ultimately settling in Nokomis in 1983. Survivors include her son Jim and daughter-in-law Barb Heusel of Madison, Alabama, and her daughter Mary and son-in-law Mike Horlick of Venice.
