Lola and I were sadden to hear about Kathleen passing. She was a classy, bright young lady during our high schools days and never lost that smile and willingness to help others. She will be missed.

Kathy worked next door to me at Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel in the late 80’s. She was a wonderful, kind person. Always dressed impeccably. She and I took mini-trips with my son, Karl, to some of the local lakes when he was 2-3 yrs old. We had such fun together. Beautiful lady.
