Kitty grew up in Dallas, Texas, where she raised her three children, before moving to Lake Tawakoni in Quinlan, Texas. She enjoyed an active lifestyle that included hosting family gatherings and chasing her grandchildren around the lake on the weekends. Kitty spent many years working as a substitute in Quinlan ISD, helping to bring smiles to the many young faces that she encountered. It was there that she found her love for children with special needs. Kitty was a “lover of life”, which was evident by her giant personality and contagious laugh.
