I met Kitty shortly after her son Bob, married my sister, Sharon. I always admired her for her spirit, her calmness and her smile. She was a wonderful person and will be missed. Blessings to her family and many, many, friends.

She was such a kind, sweet and beautiful person. When I knew her I was a kid and I remember her loving to have children around at her house and I liked visiting. :) I think anyone who knew her was blessed in one way or another. May God Bless her family.

I think of all the many nice visits that we had together as families and personal too. Kitty always took time to help others in any way she could. I remember when we first moved to Faribault after church she invited us with our big family to come for dinner. That really told me she had a big heart and was loving and caring. I will miss her lovely letters that came to us after we moved to Hopkinsville,KY. She had the Love of God in her heart. Truly you had a special wife and Mother.God care for all of you. Love and Prayers, John & Marge Scott

Kitty was quiet and loving. She was a pillar marked with the fruit of the Spirit: Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. She was a blessing to all who were privileged to know her.

Kitty was one of the kindest, sweetest, and dearest people I have ever had the privilege of knowing. She loved the Lord and quietly shared His love with those around her by her smile and thoughtful words and deeds. Kitty had such a beautiful spirit about her and was always willing to help out wherever she could. We will miss her greatly and I know her family will too. She is one of the first people I want to meet in heaven where there will be no more pain, sorrow, crying, or death. I am looking forward to that glorious day!
