I knew Kathy from work at Corning Incorporated for many years. She always had me laughing and telling her funny jokes. I lost touch with her over the years when she and Dick moved away. I am truly sorry to hear of her passing and my thoughts and prayers are especially with Dick and the family at this time. She will be missed.

Linda and I were so shocked to read this. We have so many great memories of our times together in Muskogee and Corning. We was always so upbeat and happy with such a great sense of humor, and that great smile. She was special. We are sending our love and prayers to Dick and the boys. (We have family in Greenville and would love to get together sometime.)

I am saddened to hear of Kathy’s passing. Kathy was such a fun loving and bubbly person. We worked together at Corning and we always had so much fun. We lost touch over the years but I remember the last time I ran into her, she had me in stitches. My prayers are with her family.

I first met Kathy at Broad Street School when she lived in Windsor Gardens in Horseheads. She was friendly and fun and I remember being very upset when she moved away. But I never forgot Kathy and when I saw her again at the Corning Country Club many years later I was thrilled to reconnect. She was a bright and Shining Star and I am so very sorry to hear of her passing. Please accept my condolences on the loss of your loved one.

I’m so sorry to hear about Kathy. We met when she worked at Curves, and I loved her positivity and big smile. Kathy taught me to appreciate the sunshine, which is what I do every day. She will be missed.
