Kathy was co-founder of Black River Brewing Co. in Watertown. She also worked in accounting locally, and sold ad space for the Adirondack Mountain Sun newspaper years ago.
Kathy was an avid homemaker who enjoyed collecting antiques. She found joy in watching game shows, crossword puzzles, scrabble, and rummy. Kathy enjoyed hunting, was a NASCAR fan and loved attending races. Music was a significant part of Kathy's life, and she cherished attending many concerts with her family. The Harley Davidson Rendezvous Classic in Mariaville Lake, NY, was a highlight for Kathy. Above all, Kathy's favorite pastime was cooking for her children.
