Katherine graduated from Skaneateles High School and attended Strafford Nursing School. She worked in food service at Lum's Restaurant. She was also a nurse’s aide at Auburn Hospital and various local nursing homes. Katherine spent many hours volunteering and her summers were spent preserving fruits and vegetables. She enjoyed dancing in her younger days, crocheting, crafts and playing games.
