We loved her in Seattle. She was friendly, kind and interviewed anyone with ease and grace – the same virtues that carried her through her endless battle with benign brain tumors.

 Kathi Goertzen died today. And her absence will leave the broadcast community awash in grief. Her co-anchors gave us regular updates at the end of their news casts and even those men who could tell us the most painful news without flinching, choked back tears, sobs when they told us about Kathi.  

She leaves a loving family, a faith community, devoted colleagues and countless viewers.  

Her courage and grace remain.
