Kathleen was born Sept. 29, 1933, in Wahoo, NE to Paul and Edith (Warren) Koeller. She attended Kansas State University where she met fellow student Joseph Magrath from McCook, NE. Kathleen and Joseph married in 1953 and eventually settled in McCook where they operated The Great Plains Animal Hospital and raised a family of six. Kathleen lived in McCook from the late 1950s until 1977 when she moved to Albuquerque.

Kathleen worked in radio advertising sales in McCook and Albuquerque, followed by medical device sales.

Kathleen married Harold Boyce of Albuquerque in Hawaii in 1995 and enjoyed 10 years of retirement activities including traveling, playing cards, visiting with friends and wintering in Mesa, AZ. Harold died in 2004.
