Grace Gardens Funeral Chapel Staff send our condolences to family and friends.

From: Tim McEachern
Relation: I have known Kate for many years.

So very sorry to hear about Kate. She was such a special lady, and always had such a warm, friendly and caring smile. There was never a time that I was in her house, that she didn’t put out a meal of some kind. It was like going to a wedding. And she would say, “It’s just a snack”. Rest in peace, Kate, and God bless.
