I worked with Kathy at Lewis-Gale from 1984-1989. She was sweet, funny, and smart! I enjoyed working with her very much. We kept in touch with annual Christmas cards, after my husband and I moved to Pennsylvania. I will cherish my memories of that gracious, lovely lady. My condolences to her family and friends.
