Kathryn was a wonderful person, student, and poet. She had such vitality and creativity. I will always remember her weekly contributions to class. She wrote so vividly about food, family, friends.I was always impressed by how witty her poems were. Nothing diminished her zest for life or improving her work. Her last prose poems for class about questions for God were brilliant and funny metaphysical mediations. I am proud to have been her first poetry workshop teacher and I will never forget the conversations we had on the Metro North nor will I forget her compassion towards my daughter and her illnesses. I learned of her death today and I am very sad. I send deepest condolences to her friends and family. Love, Jennifer

I remember Kay from our family reunion days at the grandparents' place in Tyndall, South Dakota, as part of the crowd of cousins who kind of took over that tiny town back then. In particular I remember once all of us as a troop walking down to the bakery to buy penny candies, and I remember thinking back then we must have been an impressive sight. Those were days when kids were allowed to roam free, and we all took advantage of that. Family experiences like that must have been important to Kay, since, among all her world travels, she made sure to move back to Brookings.

In our adult years I admired Kay from the stories I heard, the ways she was making her life count. And I have learned from the very well written summary of her life that there was much more than those stories, much more to admire.

My condolences for the family, as they grieve but also, as the people I remember them to be, appreciate the privilege they were allowed in spending time with someone who was so good in this world.

Kathy was one of the greatest persons I had the honor to have known in my life. And in is with a heavy heart that I just found out that she had passed away.

Aloha Nui!
