Kathy enjoyed the outdoors, horseback riding, motorcycling, camping, fishing, and swimming. Also she enjoyed poetry, art - photography, sketching and pottery. Kathy loved animals. Her dogs traveled with her much of the time. She enjoyed sharing pictures of her horse, Shasta, relating stories of horseback rides with mutual friends. She provided love and care for strays who found her home. Kathy was a free spirit who loved to pick up and travel to parts unknown with friends as a young woman. Kathy always tested limits from the time she was a young child which drove her sense of adventure. Kathy had a quirky sense of humor. She loved outrageous events, bazaar clothing, funny cartoons, cards and especially stories centered around her Norwegian and Scottish heritage. Kathy loved to surprise people with a large or small gift she thought they would enjoy or find humorous. She would bring flowers or food when friends needed their spirits lifted and would help friends by providing a ride to shop or a doctor visit. She loved children and their whimsical thought process and delighted in their world of fantasy. She also enjoyed visiting with friends and family, near and far. Kathy will be missed. She leaves behind her sister Cheryl (Bill) Fogg, nephews - Douglas, Carter and David (Tiffany) Munk, nieces Deborah Bieker and Courtney Munk, Jane Peterson - Aunt, Lyman Chamberlin - Uncle, many loving and supportive cousins and numerous caring - devoted friends and neighbors.
