Kathryn truly loved her grandchildren: Jeffrey Schmoyer, Laura Bayer, J. Zachary Schmoyer, Katie Medill, J. Eric Schmoyer, Leah Hirschbeck, Becca Ohlsen, Lindsay Singh, Ryan Neithamer along with her 14 great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
She enjoyed traveling with family throughout the USA and Europe. Taking on golf in her 40’s, Kathryn helped organize the woman’s golf league at Village Greens. Many memories were made there well into her early 90’s.
The family thanks the entire staff at Country Meadows for the great care and concern they gave our mother for the last eight years. She always spoke highly of everyone. We also appreciate the attention she received at Reading Hospital.
