She retired in the late 1990’s from Mark Shale Clothing Store in Joliet, and also at the Willowbrook, IL location.  Katherine worked as a professional tailor and clothes presser for over 15+ years.

Katherine had a sassy spirit and outspoken way about her.   She loved being around her family, making them laugh, and giving them her wisdom and advice when they needed it from her.

Katherine enjoyed many things throughout her life; such as fishing, cooking, and family cookouts. The most joy was spending time with her three grandchildren, Patrice, Keiara, and Tiara Ulmer, and they enjoyed spending time with her.
