7 Tributes for “Kathryn B. Newhouse

    As a Senior Companion, and as a friend of her son Jim, I got to know her well. She loved to sing whenever anything musical was going on. She would attend all the events. Also we are very distant cousins, going further back on the Bergevin side. A wonderful woman who always had a smile and something good to say.

    I am so very sorry to hear about Kate, and very sorry for the family’s loss. Kate live on the 5th floor of West Highland with her husband and that is where I got to know her. She loved just to sit out with us ladies and visit. I did go over and visit with Kate at Bishop Noah from time to time. I will miss her. God bless you all!

    So sad to hear of Kay’s passing. She is together again with Bob and her family and all the girlfriends from Gladstone. She was such a nice gal, always had a smile and a hug for you. You all have our sympathy.

    Ron, I am so sorry you lost your mother. I’m glad she was in your life for so long! Let God fill the hole inside this Christmas season.

    I am sorry to hear of Kay’s passing. My Mom, Dottie, will miss her. They had a wonderful friendship for many years and our families had fun together when we were growing up. Love to the Newhouse family.
