I just found out. My dog has been going there for 5 years. Kathy was an amazing and generous woman. She will be greatly missed. I bow to her parents for raising such a terrific child who grew to a beautiful woman. I know she's smiling down at us all. Thank you for coming into our lives Kat... Love Cathy Bill and Benny(woof woof)

I am so very saddened to learn of Kathy's passing. I have known her since the begining of Kathy's Clip Joint. She was gentle, kind, and loving. As years went on and our business realionship grew, Kathy donated her grooming services to any rescues that I brought to her. She left a beautiful legacy and will be very much missed. ~Sharon

We were so saddened to hear of Kathy's passing. We started taking our dog, Monty, to her almost 2 years ago... Monty LOVED going to see Kathy and we absolutely loved the way she took care of him. We will miss truly miss her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Jen, Jay & Monty

I just found out yesterday about Kathy's passing. I am so sorry for the loss of your daughter. I brought my dog Patti to her for the three years I had her. Kathy was a wonderful, caring and loving person to my dog and I am sure to every dog that got groomed by her. May she rest in peace and may all your memories of Kathy be forever cherished.

Kathy not only took wonderful, loving care of my pets for at least the last 20 years she was my friend. I loved that girl She was all that is good in a person. Intelligent, Caring, kind and loving...she will be sorely missed. I believe all her "doggy clients" were happy to greet her; especially my Trooper who adored her. Thank you family for giving this world such a wonderful person. I wish she could have stayed here longer but that is God's decision not ours. I will miss her. Lucille Hanselman

To Kathy's parents and family:

It was always with joy and confidence that I left my two dogs in Kathy's care for their regular grooming. She loved them and always took the best care of them. I was so sorry to hear of Kathy's passing. I will miss her a great deal. May God comfort you and give you peace.

Kathy, I am so devastated by your death. So is Phil. We were the last customers in the shop on Jan 16 at 5:30 when you were so sick. When you had to lie down for 2 hours in the middle of the day. When we were leaving and you said "take me with you" we told you we would. But you wouldn't go.
