Kathleen was born on the Isle of Sheppey; town of Sheerness, Kent England. Her family moved to Hayward’s Heath, Sussex where she attended school and later worked in the local bakery.

Kath and George were married before the war ended, settling briefly in Kinistino, Sk. before the couple relocated to Prince Albert, SK. They later moved to Vancouver, BC and after retirement, to Summerland, BC. Kath enjoyed the War Brides Club, loved to dance, was an avid bowler and enjoyed many a card or board game.
