Kathy was a wonderful colleague and co worker for us at Triple C Housing.

Her sweetness made a tremendous impact on us all, and her door was always open to all of us workers, who sometimes just needed an ear to talk to, and sometimes, a shoulder to cry on.

She will definitely be missed. I remember our times in the break room at work, making coffee, and having some great conversations. I am sad to hear about this and wish nothing but strength for her family, which she always spoke so positively about.

I just heard. This is a terrible loss. Kathy was a wonderful advocate for people with mental illness and a joy to work with and to be with. She will be missed but her work and contributions continue on. RIP and all the best to her friends, family, and colleagues.
