Kathy worked with and loved her parents Bill and Sarah Kitchens in their family bakery in Cleburne, TX. Working in the bakery established her love for baking and cooking for her family.

In the 1990s, she and Charles opened and operated a donut shop in Rio Vista, TX. The past several years, she worked for J.R. Temple Properties in Cleburne.
Kathy was a member of Granbury Street Church of Christ. She loved the Lord and when things got tough, she would always say that God has a plan, and it will all work out. She also loved old country music with a passion.
