was a smart, classy, strong, funny, selfless daughter, sister, wife, mom,
aunt, grammy and friend to many.
Kathy and her husband George were together for 46 years. They spent most
of that time raising their 4 children and providing for their family.

time with their friends and family.

as a manager of some sort. Kathy loved cooking and gathering with family
and friends over a meal. Before retiring in 2013 she was the General Manager

gave to the BA Neighbors, and mentored countless young people in and out
of the restaurant industry who all have her to thank for their success.
