Margaret Davis (Simpson)
Kathy was a member of our APHS Women's Alumni dinner group. She was so sweet and so nice all the time. I was so sad when she passed as we were cultivating a nice friendship. Ginni and I went to her viewing and felt the loss deeply. Her children have a wonderful Memorial to her on Facebook. Rest in peace sweet Kathy. Missing you, Midge
