She was preceded in death by her parents, her beloved husband Edward, a grandson Derek Rinehart, and two siblings, Chuck Virden and David Virden.

Kathy was known for her love of card games, often spending enjoyable evenings playing with her daughters. Yet, it was the time spent with her grandchildren that held a special place in her heart. Kathy's love for her family was evident in the countless memories they created together, memories that will forever be cherished by those who loved her.
