She graduated Litchfield High School with the class of 1949 and was most commonly recognized at Coffman’s Drug Store in Litchfield where she was a clerk for 16 years. Katie was also a homemaker and loving mother.
Katie enjoyed attending her Coffee Club mornings where she and thirteen other ladies met at Jublets Café, once a week for several years. Katie always took care of her friends, making sure they were able to get to where they needed to go, and in return, when Katie was unable, her friends returned the favor and they always took care of each other.
Katie’s grandchildren were the light of her life and she enjoyed every moment spent with them. She never missed any activity they were involved in and was always their biggest supporter. Every year, for Easter, Katie and Warren hosted an Easter Egg Hunt for their family. The grandchildren enjoyed it all through their youth and even to adulthood.
