She attended school in Fargo and graduated from Fargo Central in 1966. In her teenage years, Kathy was rambunctious and a rebel… who rebelled early and often!

In the 1980’s, Kathy took a recess from teaching to become a Travel Agent. While being a Travel Agent, she travelled the world. She definitely took advantage of her Travel Agent perks! Kathy returned to teaching in the late 80’s and 90’s, landing in Minneapolis. There, she focused on Special Education, primarily at Minneapolis North and Southwest High Schools. Upon her Father’s passing in 1999, she returned to Fargo. Then, Kathy worked some part-time jobs with the Fargo Forum and the Salvation Army. She had a unique talent and flair for Arts and Crafts. Kathy would create with her talents throughout her life. Kathy adored her friends, family and relatives. She loved sending greeting cards on all Holidays to friends and family. Those, along with many other “Kathy-isms” and of course, she will be dearly missed.
