Kathryn was devoted to her family and the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  She was the mother of six children.  She helped Richard on the farm outside of Burley where she raised her family.  She served in every organization of the church, including Sunday School, Primary, Relief Society, and family history indexing.  She and Richard served a mission in Nauvoo where she gave tours of the homes and demonstrated some home skills of the pioneer women.

Before their mission, they went on several wagon trains in the 1990’s, celebrating the opening of the west.  They went on the Sesquicentennial Mormon Trail Reenactment wagon train from Winters Quarters, Nebraska to Salt Lake in 1997.  She was on national television news when the wagon she was riding in tumbled down the mountainside just before they got to Salt Lake.
