Kathryn was a homemaker most of her life. She enjoyed gardening, canning, exercising, reading and living on the ranch in Billings County. She had a special love for animals, especially Hereford cattle and horses and loved the ranch life. She made the best home-made bread and borscht soup.   Kathryn lived a beautiful faith-filled life, praying the rosary daily. She played an active role in her church, St. Demetrius Ukrainian Church, where she was a member of the Ladies Society and the church choir. Kathryn will be dearly missed.
