    She was so thoughtful and caring, when I was little she was my teacher. I have one profound memory of my mom giving me this terrible drunken little bullcut, I cried so much and did not want to go to school without wearing a hat all day. I was telling Mrs. Colbert how ugly my hair was and how the other kids would make fun of me and she got really serious, bent down and asked if her hair looked okay because we had the same cut now. If she could pull it off Mrs. Colbert said I could, I could not rock the hairstyle like she did but She was so funny about it, it gave me the confidence I needed. I know she will be missed by family & friends dearly. My condolences to all of you.

    Andy and Family: I was so saddened to hear of Kathy's passing. Both my children had her as their 3rd grade teacher at Rahn Elementary. I know that both of my children would count her as one of their favorite teachers, and both still have their 9 patch quilt squares they made with her help. Her quiet manner and steadfast ways were just what my children needed in a teacher. She was caring, funny, calm, and involved in them personally. Kids related to her quiet, yet firm manner. I got to know her through this time and enjoyed sharing books with her as well. She made a difference in so many lives. I'm sure your hearts are aching, but hope you can take some comfort in knowing how much she meant to others. You have my sincere sumpathies.
