    I’m so sorry to hear this news. Katie was our (Jennifer, Tonya and Tammy) babysitter from 6 weeks old to 11 years old. She was such a good woman. She was the best babysitter ever. We had lots of good times with her. She would keep up to 6 or 7 of us at a time and did it like it was a piece of pie until one of got hurt.She also taught us a lot even the little things. She will be missed. Sending prayers to the family.
