Kate was born in Sayre PA, a daughter of Sheila Hart Zulkosky and the late John Zulkosky, Jr. Kate is also predeceased by her husband Donald P. Coller. In addition to her mother, Kate is survived by her beloved daughters, Anna M. and Lucy M.

Kate was a graduate of Sayre High School and earned her Bachelor's Degree, in Education, from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. She was a Physical Education teacher at the Alternative School for Math and Science in Corning. Her career enabled her to combine her passions of personal fitness and educating others.
