She attended the CMC Church in Niverville the majority of the time, enjoying its German service. She served faithfully at the Niverville Thrift Store for many years. She enjoyed going to the Friendship Centre each week and attended Bible study with the other residents at Niverville Place. She loved to sew, cook and travel, and also spent much time knitting, blessing people with her slippers and teddy bears.

She was predeceased by her parents, Harold and Margaret Ray; and stepdaughter Nicole Dykun.

Shortly after Kathy graduated high school in Swan River, she moved to Fort McMurray, AB to work as a bank teller.

She also worked at Motor Coach as a painter, worked at McVicar's Fuels, and was able to get her Class 1, which she was so proud of. Kathy was a very hard worker and learned a lot of different trades through her short years. Her last career was with Vita Credit Union as a bank teller since 2000.

In 2005, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which later turned out to be a lifelong disease called neurosclerosis.

In her growing up Kathy enjoyed riding horses and dirt bike with her cousin Karen. She also enjoyed hunting, fishing, skidooing and riding her quad with Jarvis and her favorite niece "Tanisha". Kathy made the best borscht, but still loved to go out for lunch with one of her many friends any chance she could get. She was a dedicated and loyal friend. Kathy loved angels and has seen them. We will miss you deeply, Kathy, and you will forever be in our hearts, never forgotten. Kathy, you are at peace now.
