Life’s Reflection

Kathy attended school in the Donora Public Schools and graduated from Donora High School. 


Kathy met and united in holy matrimony with Raymond Alexander Dennis (Deceased) in 1963 and they lived a joyous and fruitful life together for 55 years.  Raymond and Kathy made their home in the Washington DC metropolitan area prior to moving to the DFW Metroplex; at which time they decided to make Texas their forever home.  Kathy was a member of St Mark A.M.E.
