She grew up in Hamburg, Iowa, and graduated from Hamburg High School in 1954. She moved to Omaha in 1955 and worked at Tully’s until getting married in Virginia Beach in 1959. Because her husband was a Marine, during this time they also relocated to Wisconsin, Minnesota, Mississippi, and Tennessee.
In 1967, shortly after Katherine moved back to Omaha, she began working for Prudential Insurance Company. She was employed until her retirement in 1992 after more than 20 years. After retiring she worked various jobs in Fremont.
Katherine was a member of First Lutheran Church and had a strong relationship with God. She was a member of the Bible Study Fellowship and a member of Lydia’s Circle.
Katherine enjoyed traveling, bowling, reading, quilting, cross-stitch, sewing, puzzles and knitting. She was active in church groups such as the Solo Sisters of Omaha and the Solo’s of First Lutheran Church in Fremont.
