After her graduation from Nancy High School in 1949, Kathleen went on to obtain her LPN license through Somerset City Hospital and Norton Healthcare Institute. The majority of her career was devoted to her twenty-one years at Indiana Veterans Home. Kathleen was a kind and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
