In 1981, they moved to Hinkley, California, where they built a dairy with Bert's two brothers, George and Dick, from the ground up and lived for the next 12 years until they moved and settled in Twin Falls, Idaho.

Kathy worked different positions throughout her life as a medical secretary. Her last job at St. Lukes Elks Rehabilitation was where she retired. Above all, though, she was a dedicated wife, Mom, grandma, sister, Aunt, and Friend. She cherished her grandchildren and loved every moment with them. She had a vivacious, personality and an amazing contagious laugh.
