    Please accept our most sincere sympathy in the death of Ms Katherine. She was such a sweet, kind & gerenous friend to us & to so very many others. Everyone loved & enjoyed her & Mr James. She was very proud of each of her family members & their achievements. I enjoyed seeing the many, many pictures of her family the last time I visited her & will always cherish that last visit.
    Love to each of you.

    Our deepest sympathy to the family of Katherine.
    Over 40 years ago she kept our son Daxton when he was just a small child while my husband was a student at the U of A. and I worked at the bank. She helped me in so many ways and I grew to love her and the family. At the time Robin was a little girl and would also help her mother.
    Through the years I have often thought of her and James and what a positive influence they had on our lives as a young family. She will always have a special place in our heart.
    May the family cherish all the memories they shared with this wonderful woman.
    Love to all, Linda, Scott and Daxton Norton

    Katherine was always a giver. Some of Marilyn’s earliest memories were with Katherine. Along with James, she was always there for everyone at the Baldwin Church of Christ.
