An outgoing person by nature, Kitty loved to go fishing, read, cook, and truly relished her job and time spent volunteering at Brookgreen Gardens. Kitty believed in the importance of education for everyone, but especially for women. Kitty was proud to hold the distinction of Regional Manger and Administrator for the Tri County Library System and was honored to have consulted with the library of congress and worked in-conjunction with two presidents.
