Kathy was born in Foremost, Alberta, raised on the family farm in the County of 40 Mile and attended school in the Foremost district. She married the love of her life, Lawrence ‘Al’ Davis on November 14, 1953, in Bow Island. Kathy was a long time member of the Catholic Women’s League and was a devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and mentor to many youngsters. She enjoyed crocheting, cooking and gardening as well as watching curling. Kathy had a great sense of humour and you never knew when she would play a joke on you! She achieved so much in her life that it is hard to pick one over the other; she will be dearly missed.
