Currently a student at the University of Akron, she was majoring in social work and hoped to work with those less fortunate in society.

She was a beautiful woman with a contagious laugh who never failed to make us smile. A free spirit full of light, she was always ready for adventure and wanted to experience everything. Kate was so young and had so much to offer to the world. We will miss her for the rest of our lives. Her soul is where the sun is shining!
