She was an avid conservative, prolific knitter, collector of fun shoes, clothes and jewelry. Falling in love with more than Beaufort, she adopted Johns 2 sons, 2 daughters and 4 grandchildren. A very generous friend willing to help out anyone with good cheer, at the drop of a hat. In lieu of services, family and friends are invited to celebrate Kathes life with a wake at Hemingways Bistro, her favorite venue, at 3 pm Sunday July 29, 2012. Kathe is survived by her brother Steven, sister Marsha, stepdaughter Tara and grandchildren, Grace and Grant.
