Kate was a beloved volunteer at St Helens in Vero Beach with me in Religious Education devoting many many hours to our children’s ministry, both CCD and our Summer Bible School. She baked thousands of cupcakes, one tray after another with her sidekick Eileen! Both very different women, but shared the same heart! I loved them both dearly and asked them to do the impossible-and they did it every single time! They traced and cut out very detailed art patterns and glued together massive characters by the hundreds that decorated every room of school and gym! They will be rewarded in heaven for loving God’s children.
Kate talked about her children and grandchildren nonstop. I feel like I know you all. She was one of a kind and so very special. Thank you for sharing her with us at St Helen Catholic Church.
With love, Gerri Krempel-Rorick

Just found out about Katie's death . Tried to contact her to sent her Easter wishes. I tried at Christmas to but could not reach her.
Hope her passing was easy and glad she is not suffering through this pandemic. Please know that I've always kept her and George in my heart and always will. They were wonderful friends. Tess Garner (Middleburgh NY)
