Kate was a loving wife, mother and grandmother.  She was a gifted artist and at the same time an efficient clerical professional. Kate grew up in Parma and was a graduate of Nazareth Academy, Class of 1973.  She was also a graduate of Saint Leo the Great Catholic grade school on Cleveland' Southwest side, where she also worked as the office secretary after graduation from high school.  That was followed by joining the staff as an executive secretary of Broadview Management Company, years later becoming Western Reserve Management Company, and finally, Teledyne in-house Industrial Advertising Agency.  She then was married to Dan and raised her family of three.  When her children were finally on their own, she worked with husband Dan on various advertising and marketing endeavors and worked seasonally at the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.
