Katy would often help at Brown Elementary. She was always kind and knowledgeable with our children and a joy to work with. She touched many lives and was loved by us all.

Aunt Catherine was always the aunt taking pictures at family get meant a lot to her. She was the aunt who called every Sunday evening to talk and listen to me after my parents died. She was always curious and always engaged in living. She meant a lot to me...

Katie was one of the first people I met when I moved to Seymour 11 years ago. She was a dear friend to everyone! I always referred to her as the energizer bunny because she was always doing SOMETHING for SOMEONE. Now she can rest in the loving arms of Jesus. She deserves it. I will miss you Katie.

Bob and Katie have been neighbors for over 41 years. We have treasured their friendship and enjoyed their family. Witnessed their strong ties to their family with loving assistance given. Admired Katies contributions to children and resolve to survive illness over and over. They will be missed.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

David, I will always remember our "Prom Date" back in the 70's and how your mother made sure we all had a pre-party. Her food was delicious and she was a good person to all of us. How she has endured the path taken is beyond words. She was strong, smart and beautiful. I know that you and your family will miss her. She was very good to my Aunt during her cancer battle and gave others hope. Thinking of you. It just wont' be the same on my neighborhood walk through the boulevards without her. Your friend, Traci Freeman

I was so sorry to hear of Katie's passing along her way. I know she will be missed by many. We go back to the early 1950s at Indiana State Teachers College [now ISU]. The school was so small then that practically everyone on campus knew each other. And we all shared the same goal -- to become teachers. Katie and my husband Walt were from Shelby County, and I was from Evansville. But we eventually all landed in Seymour. We were both so busy with our families and our schools that we didn't get together much, but we always enjoyed visiting and catching up when our paths crossed. "The greatest gift we can give to those who have left us is to live fully in their place." Billie Wintin
