Kathy was a graduate of Grandville High School, attended cosmetology school, and then opened, owned, and operated her own beauty shop, “The Sunny Spot” on Grand Rapid’s North side for several years. She then went onto the banking industry, training bank tellers all over the country, and then retiring from Chase Bank after 35 years of service. She enjoyed spending time with her family, attending her grandchildren’s school events and of course spoiling her grandchildren, and her grand-dog Cash. Honorable mention to Grand Cat, Ollie. Kathy and her husband are members of the St. Isidore Parish and also members of the S&S Casino Group.
