She spent her life caring for others both inside and outside her immediate family.

She served in the United States Air Force, leaving the service as Major Katherine Schubert. She ran the nursing department at England Air Force base as her last full time military job. She trained countless nurses in the profession and was admired by her students and peers. She and her husband traveled a great deal in their retirement despite many physical issues, and always looked at her children and family with great joy. The smile of joy she displayed when greeting people was loving, genuine, and those who received it could not help but feel that they were loved. There is no doubt that this world is a better place because God placed Kathy in it. She will be greatly missed.
