Kathy 'Kat' and I hired into USS a couple of weeks a part. Kathy has always had a very bubbly personality and caring heart. Even as her personality was very bubbly she always had a word of wisdom about life, and family. Kathy will be missed greatly by those who lives she impacted...

My deepest condolences to the Johnson and Ford families...Kathy and Willie were two of my favorite and closest friends..We made so many memories together through the years...We laughed together so many times while working for USS, and we also cried together in times of trouble.days... Her last text to me was "Im home from the hospital" I responded ok and told her that I loved her." and her last words to me was "I love you too" I will forever cherish those words, and our friendship..Be at rest my Sister...I love you too

One thing i can say about Kathy is that she was a true friend. It was the 4 of us who use to hang. We went to Las Vegas together and there was a little matter we all talked about. My feelings got hurt but Kathy was there with me. That let me know she was a true friend. I really appreciated her then. and let her know. We played softball together for the women coke plant team. Kathy was my girl, and my friend.
