Dear Hugh & Family: I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I knew Kathi from R.R.C and then later in the Portland group. I got to know her better and gain more appreciation of her skills and sense of humor. She brought such life to any gathering. It is unfortunate her health failed so quickly. I would think of her often. May she rest easy now.

Kathi and I became instant buddies, when she joined the St. Columbanus Choir. Two sopranos, side by, side center front. After practice we usually went for coffee, where I am sure many of my life problems were solved. Friendship continued even when I moved miles away. She was always sending me angels as gifts, I guess she thought I needed them. On the sudden loss of my husband, Kathi took the reins, she would do the envelopes, I do the notes, I was so thankful for her. The Choir performed Dec. 2005, first time on the altar, to gain donations for the Food Bank, of course we were front and center. A fond memory, Kathi was dressed as an African Queen, some occasion we had at the church hall, 2011,picture attached. Kathi was my confident, never complaining about her health, always a smile and glad to see you, putting the tea pot on. Her breathing would give her problems climbing to the choir loft, no problem a puff on her inhaler and away she would go singing out. She was and is my B.F.F., I wish we had got to see each other more in these last years, but Kathi is unforgettable, my B,F.F. now singing with the Angels. Sylvia McElroy.
