Kathy was a wonderful warm, open and loving lady who brought sunshine and laughter with her whenever we met. Her generosity of spirit shone out from her and we were friends within minutes; a friendship that endured over 23 years and thousands of miles.

She will live on in our memories with all her vitality and love of life as intact as when we met.

Our thoughts are with Denny, family and friends. We wish you strength for the hard road ahead and also that amongst the tears and grief you will have space for laughter and joy when remembering how much she gave to all our lives.

Kathy was an extremely kind, generous and loving individual. She was very accepting of everyone and always looked for the positive in all situations. I will forever be grateful for the warm welcome that Kathy gave me when I joined the Stephens family. She was truly one of a kind and I will miss her dearly. I hope she is having one heck of a party with everyone who has gone before. I’m sure she’s making her famous bacon-wrapped water chestnuts for all to enjoy. I love you, Kathy. Rest in peace.

My Aunt Kathy was a tremendously generous and loving individual who never hesitated to put other people’s wants/needs ahead of her own. I will always cherish the dinners we were able to enjoy up in the cities when she was finishing up her tour with United. We laughed, we got to know each other better and thoroughly enjoyed each other’s company. I am happy she no longer has to live with a disease that cut her life too short and can be reunited with a few loved ones upstairs. We’ll miss ya Kathy Mac!

Kathy was a great neighbor and a friend. She was always a great host at the numerous parties at their house. She will indeed be very missed. Our prayers and sympathy goes with her family.
