“Kitty” was raised in San Antonio, Texas and graduated from Sam Houston High School in 1976. Kitty was a gifted artist and a creative spirit. Living most of her adult life in Floresville, Texas, she painted prolifically, producing items such as community signs, t-shirts, and murals, for both schools and businesses. Family and friends often received hand-painted gifts for special occasions. In 2009, Kitty and Robert retired to Longton, Kansas, and in September of this year they celebrated their 40th anniversary.
Kitty was a life-long member of the Christadelphian community and held on to the Hope of the Grace of God. She was an artistic soul and a devoted mother, and her premature passing will be deeply felt. “Our dad will be lost without her, and we will be less without her.”
