Kathleen was a 1977 graduate of Walled Lake Central. Upon graduation she furthered her education and became a Medical Assistant. When her children were young, she moved from Waterford to Commerce to be in the Walled Lake Schools and then left her job as a Medical Assistant and became a bus driver for the Walled Lake Schools. It was here that she found her calling as it became her passion and she became a mother figure to many of her students and her children’s friends. She loved spending time in Florida where she would work on her tan, fish and feed the pelicans. She was also a very voracious reader. She and her husband Bill were longtime members of Edgewood Country Club. She was very involved in her children’s and grandchildren’s lives as they grew up playing sports and other activities.
