While on vacation Kati and Vernon found Sisters to be an ideal community to live the rest of their lives.
Kati became active by seeking employment at the Stitchin' Post, a famous quilting store. She volunteered at the Sisters Area Chamber of Commerce providing guidance to visitors. She greeted new business owners and had a keen knowledge of the city and surrounding community. She knew the streets, businesses and places of interest to tourists and residents. She could be found most days at the chamber or at the many events held in the city. Kati was a member of the city finance committee for the past two years.
Kati enjoyed travel with her husband, visiting former TWA friends, and visiting places she studied in college. She enjoyed knitting and sports, especially tennis and golf. She will be sorely missed by her family, coworkers, friends and the community. Sebastian, the family cat, misses her, too!
