    I remember Kathy in the fondest of recollections. She was a wonderful person and accordion player. She sacrificed much of her time for the benefit of Crean Stringband. Kathy was a friend to everyone. She always made time to talk with you and come up with ideas that would benifit the band over her own needs. She will be missed but never forgotten. I’m only sorry I just found out about her passing. Lou Erthal
