Kathleen came to Newfoundland, a war bride from England with her new husband, Jim, in 1946. With a life full of happy memories, she also persevered through much family illness, and her own. Kathleen always had a wonderful smile for everyone and had a tremendous sense of humor. She tried her hand at many things over the years including painting, bridge, bowling, pressed flower work, and hospital and Legion volunteering. Until her death, she still attended the monthly war bride luncheons.
