Her working life was spent as a shop assistant for various companies and she also ran her own shop on Railway View with her husband Eddie. A talented lady who loved cake decorating Kathleen could often be found in her kitchen creating her next masterpiece and she always provided her family each year wth a delicious Christmas cake. Kathleen also enjoyed knitting and often made clothes for her family members. Holidays were taken with other family members and they became known as ’The Golden Girls’ and enjoyed visiting Cornwall, Isle of White and Florida. She enjoyed line dancing and Tai Chi and loved nothing more than getting her family together for a celebration and always looked forward to Christmas. A life long devoted member of St Wulstan’s RC Church she loved to be involved in Church events and even travelled to Rome on a pilgrimage with her Church friends and her granddaughter Laura. A loving lady with a fantastic sense of humour who will be greatly missed.
