Condolences for Kathleen Patricia Watts
Even though I have known Kathie for only 6 years she was one of the best friends I have had during my lifetime. She was quick witted, fiercely loyal, big hearted and completely devoted to her little dog Oliver. She had a big, warm heart and loved bringing friends together for coffee and donuts.
She will truly be missed. My deepest sympathy to her family and friends.
Matt and I have enjoyed getting to know Kathie over the past 3 mos. She recently invited myself and a good friend to Donut club 3 weeks ago. Kathie was an amazing friend to my mom Gail Liming. She was a great support to Matt and I. She was funny, full of character, and wouldn’t take no for an answer. 3 weeks ago she mentioned how proud she was on her family. My heart goes out to her family.
Please know that my deep sympathies are with you now, Chris. I never met your sister, the flight attendant, but I was intrigued by that growing up. Peace and love to you. 🌿🌷
I was her housekeeper for several months. She was a sweet and nice woman. She often talked about her family. She loved to tell stories of spending time with her neices and nephew. She was so happy to go to her brothers for dinners. She was so over the moon about the makeup she gave her niece for her birthday. Mostly, she gushed over Oliver, her dog. I only saw her twice a month, but she was very welcoming. She loved hanging out with her friends and how one recently gave her flowers. I hope she was not in any pain in the end. She is greatly missed!! My condolences to her family.
Kathy was probably my sister’s best friend in high school. She spent a lot of time at our house. She was always so sweet to all of us noisy little kids that were running around. I always remember how absolutely beautiful she was…, cute as can be and always dressed so nicely. She was such a lovely person…..lots of fun!!! God bless her…..hope she and my sister re connect in heaven….. they had lots of fun together here on Earth.
