Kathy was born on May 4, 1954 in Dennison, OH, daughter of Kathryn Burdette. She was a 1972 graduate of Claymont High School, where she was a cheerleader. On October 23, 1976, she married Jim, beginning a life as a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. Kathy and Jim resided in Wooster, OH for much of their marriage. While she was raising their family, Kathy also worked part time at several places, including her most recent employment with Rhodes Dental for over a decade until she became sick.
