Enjoyed our friendship for 70 + years. We had fun and laughs when we went out to eat. We went to Bishops for lunch and found ourselves still chating when dinner was being served. Kathy liked staying over night at our house. My husband, Arnie (now deceased) enjoyed her company and liked to spoil her with a dozen chocolate doughnuts with chocolate icing to take home with her. When asked if she shared the doughnuts, she replied 'Are you crazy? Arnie bought them for me.' Her mother had a birthday party and we had chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and chocolate ice cream. Kathy topped it with chocolate syrup. I sure hope they serve chocolate in heaven. I could go on and on, but enough is enough. RIP my sweet friend until we meet again. Thank you for all the good times and precious memories.

Sister Martha Ann was my 2nd grade teacher at Xavier in 1992/1993. She was the best - such a supportive and enthusiast teacher! I remember that I really enjoyed her gold fish tank and learning how to tell time with her tiny toy clocks. Thank you Sister Martha Ann for seeing me as a good student and teaching me how to succeed. I’m so sad to hear the news of your passing. Praying for you and your family!
