This is an article that was printed in the Tribune on June 29, 1975, reporting on the cause of Kathleen's death. The cause was reported as "cardiac arrhymias" but should be cardiac arrhythmia.

I was so sad back in the seventies when I learned of Kathy's death. She was my stand partner in the Highland High Orchestra and the first girl I ever took on a date. Such a tragedy that her life was cut short. Thanks for sharing the obit. I had no idea what a huge impact she had at SUU. She definitely made a difference!
