Our darling daughter, Kathleen, passed away on June 4, 2016. Known as Kat to her friends, but always Katy to her family, she will be remembered for her bright smile, her loving heart, and her generous spirit. Katy was outgoing; she never met a stranger. She loved her family and was a devoted friend, but she was always there for anyone who needed a helping hand.
Her great passion in life was working with senior populations and she was fortunate to have achieved her goal of working as an Activity Director at Eden Hill Communities in New Braunfels. Her residents and their family members adored her and understood how hard she worked to make a difference in their lives. She touched so many lives, and we are all so grateful for the time we had her with us.
Katy is survived by her loving parents, David and Kay Carpender, her big brother Christopher, her grandparents, Bert and Charlotte Carpender, her aunt and uncle, Ca! rol and Steve Havis, and her cousins.
A visitation for close family and friends will be held at a later date. Her ashes will be interred with her beloved grandparents, Kathleen and Harry Payne, who preceded her in death.
