Kathrine worked in health care and managed the Outpatient Registration Department at Danbury Hospital for twelve years. She also assisted in the management of the Bangor Area Homeless Shelter. She volunteered for the Bangor Agency on Aging and the Veterans Hospital Outpatient Clinic.
Kathrine loved classic rock music, particularly Neil Diamond, as well as classical music and she subscribed to the Bangor Symphony Orchestra. For fun she enjoyed sailing, kayaking and gardening.
