Kathleen was known as Mama, Grandma, Grandma Kathleen, and rarely Flossie. She loved her family, flowers, and gardening. Her kitchen was always open and provided a place for conversation, teasing and laughter. Her legacy will live on through recipes, mannerisms, and sayings passed to the people that loved her. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions can be made to the Metcalfe County Resource Service Center.
