Katie fought her cancer like a mighty warrior, being diagnosed in August of 2021 and living much longer than the doctors originally thought. Her fighting spirit has been an inspiration to her students and peers. She cared for her students as if they were her own. Katie had the most special affection for her nieces and nephews who all love her dearly.
Katie’s family would like to thank the community for every single act of kindness and support they have received over the last 1.5 years. They have been overwhelmed by your generosity and love. Bobby’s Hospice was also such a blessing to Katie and her family, who will always be grateful for the care and compassion she received from their staff.
