When you think of Kathy, you think of horses and cooking. Those were two of Kathy’s passions. Kathy was a quarter horse enthusiast and showed Quarter Horses throughout her whole life. She was a lifetime member of the Ohio Quarter Horse Association and was proud to say she attended every Quarter Horse Congress since it had started. Kathy was also an avid baker who made the best cookies, cakes, and desserts for everyone to enjoy. Her favorite cookies to bake were her famous chocolate chip cookies and holiday cut out cookies. Kathy was also a lifetime member of 4-H and Grange.

Kathy cared about everyone and made sure to send out cards for every occasion. Whether it be birthdays, anniversaries, death or even if someone was going through a rough time. You knew Kathy was thinking of you.

Kathy graduated from New Philadelphia High School and then went to Ohio State Agricultural Technical Institute where she graduated with her associates in Lab Animal Research. She worked at Dean Putt’s dairy farm while going to school and then after. She then went to work at Dr. Dan Weininger’s office to work as a dental assistant. Then she moved to Coshocton to work on the Doughty family farm. Her last position she had was with Roscoe United Methodist Church as a custodian. Kathy took pride in all of her positions and was considered to be a hard, determined worker.

A Celebration of Life will be held for family and friends at a later date at Roscoe United Methodist Church.
