As a grandmother, Katherine played an essential role in shaping the lives of Daniela and Joseph. Throughout her life, Katherine found immense joy in spending time with her grandchildren. Being a doting grandmother brought out her playful side as they shared laughter and love together. She cherished every moment spent with them and created beautiful memories that will be treasured by her family.
Katherine was preceded in death by her father Herbert and mother Dorothy. Their presence in Katherine's life influenced her kind-hearted nature that she shared with the world.
