She was an avid sports fan watching the Dallas Cowboys, Texas Rangers, and Texas Longhorns anytime they were on TV. She loved playing games with her Grandsons. Among her favorite games were Dominos, Jenga, and Trouble. She had a standing weekly beauty shop appointment with Annette Gilliam which she rarely missed until her health began to fail. Although she didn’t attend church she listened on television to Dr Stanley and read her bible nightly. Kathryn was a student throughout her life, and her thirst for knowledge was evident by the detailed notes of everything she had seen on TV and wanted to discuss, kept in a notebook beside her chair.
