Katie grew up on her parents’ farm and lived her life in Columbiana County, working at Price Fruit Farm for 17 years. She attended Fairfield School. In addition to spending time with her family, Katie loved horses and camping. She and Arnold toured the Western States, camped at Assateague Island, and loved Berlin Lake. They spent 21 winters in their motor home, and loved working at Florida Camp Inn, running the office and general store. Disney was a favorite. She also volunteered for the Family Recovery Center Education Department for 25 years.
She was an avid Cleveland Indians fan and a ferocious Pittsburgh Steelers fan. She loved tending to her flowers, especially sunflowers, feeding the birds and loving her pets, especially Princess. Her family will miss their matriarch but will forever hold her in their hearts.
