Speaking of hobbies. Katie was an amazing painter. She was very talented and has painted many amazing pictures. She loved painting pictures of her grandkids. She was such an amazing painter, even her painting teacher would ask her for advice and several times she would ask Katie to “fix” a painting she just couldn’t get to look right. Katie adored her12 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. She loved having them over and spend the night. And of course, she always took them shopping. She loved going to her grandkid’s baseball, soccer, football, basketball and even horse shows. She enjoyed this very much and they kept her very busy.
