Mark, your mother’s life was full and so giving. She had many gifts and we enjoyed those times we had with her. You have many, many wonderful memories we are certain. Hugs to you, Karen, and family. Lynn and Carol Loucks

Kathryn was the first person to welcome me and my husband to Peabody when we arrived 14 years ago & she has remained a best friend ever since.  She was very active until a few month ago.  She loved playing bridge, bowling, water aerobics & bingo.  She was a faithful member of The Peabody entertainers as a vocalist & dancer.  She definitely will be missed.  Love & sympathy to all her family
