  1. 42 is too young to pass away. Katie was my niece and so caring and lovable. I will greatly miss her and so will other family members.
    She was part of a close knit family who loved to get together and have a good time. I hope to see her again in heaven above.
    Katie will be missed but never forgotten.

  2. I am sorry to hear of your loss! My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Katie was such a beautiful person with a glowing personality. She had the best smile and laugh. I have so many great memories of her from when we were kids. She will definitely be missed.

  3. prayers and heart goes out to Jason and the kids, Katie always smiling, a lovely girl to be around, she will be greatly missed by many

  4. I worked with Katie at ASC in Creve Couer. She was so smart and always so fun to be around. I looked forward to seeing her everyday and hearing her share stories about her children whom she adored! Rest In Peace Katie, you will be missed.

  5. Sandy, I am so sorry to hear about your lose. We have spent many hours talking and bragging about our children and i truly do not have words. Please know my heart is heavy and that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  6. Sandy, I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.

  7. I went to high school with Katie and unfortunately, didn’t keep in touch after. I have so many fond memories of Katie though. The times after school when we would go to her house so she could earn some money while doing chores. Her mom would make a list of chores with amounts that she could earn (vacuum for $1.50, etc.). I also remember her adopting a mouse from the pet store – but I have no idea what happened to the mouse once she brought it home?! There are so many more random, fun memories but the biggest one that sticks out is that she was always smiling and she was always fun to be around. My heart goes out to her children and to the family and friends who are missing her.
