Born in 1941, Kathy grew up in the panhandle of Texas. In high school, she was a typical student with dreams of finding love and having a good life. She mostly focused on the sport of tennis at the time and was an overall decent player, in her opinion. After finishing up high school, Kathy went on to attend Texas Tech University where she eventually found her husband. They both had three kids in all, two boys and one girl. Kathy dedicated her life to her children. As a stay at home mom, she loved being able to see her children grow up right in front of her eyes. She had not always lived in Texas but traveled much around the United States. Kathy has only lived in Round Rock for 3 to 4 months and she has loved living here since. The people’s kindness and the climate are some of the main things that made her love living in Round Rock. Looking back on her life, Kathy cannot think of one particular thing that has been most exciting to her. Even through the hard times, like divorce, Kathy has found ways to be happy and not waster her life away being sad. Her favorite color would have to be bright red, she’s open to different types of music genres, she has always been out going, and she is left handed.
