Kathryn, known to her friends and family as “Katie” or “Kathee”, loved spending time with her husband and children.  She enjoyed traveling, gardening, reading, crafting and motorcycle riding.  In addition, she enjoyed a long career as a Radiology Technician for 47 years and retired in 2018 from Newport Community Hospital.
