In the mid-1990’s Kathleen helped to look after our elderly Mother, who had Alzheimer’s Disease, while our Father was under home Hospice care. Her wonderful home cooked meals were a daily highlight for our parents and anyone else who was there. After our father died Kathleen and another car giver, Annette Ives, continued to take care of our Mother until her death in early 2004. Kathleen was a kind, considerate and loving person who gave generously of herself. My sister, Elizabeth, and I will always remember her with love and great appreciation. Condolences to her family and friends.
Chris and family,
Our deepest sympathy for the loss of your grandmother/mother.
