Our Katie was a 2013 graduate of Kingman High School. Katie always thought she would love working with senior citizens. She said she could write letters for them, comb their hair and take them for walks. Veterans held a special place in her heart. If she saw any military insignia on a person, she would stop them and shake their hands and sincerely thank them for their service.

Katie would stop total strangers to compliment them about their clothes or their hair. She never knew a stranger as she had a cheerful soul and a loving, energetic spirit. She loved going to yard sales with her Meme (grandmother) as they always shopped for purses. She would carry all the purses her Meme found around the yard sale, deciding which ones to purchase. She loved her pets and she was very creative and loved art; she painted, liked to draw and loved cutting-edge music.

Katie was a deep thinker. She questioned things that did not make sense to her and sought to find answers in the complex. She would try to educate you on a subject and then would let you ask her questions and share your perspective to which she was open to hearing. She loved food! She especially loved albondigas soup, chicken enchiladas, chicken nuggets and chocolate cake.

Katie was protective of her family and friends. She saw the good in everyone and had a contagious laugh. When she got nervous she would giggle in a way that made others giggle too. If you asked her why she was giggling, she would say "I don't know," and giggle some more.

She was adored and she will be greatly missed.
