For 70 + years Kathryn always looked forward to her camping trips to the Thousand Islands every year with the Family and watching the large ships passing by on the St. Lawrence River and going on the River Tours “The River” was always a fun time away from home. Kathryn who was nicknamed Miss Daisy by some, loved taking her Sunday ride every week, and even Weekday rides with her trusted Chauffeur (most know who he is) to countless places across the region sightseeing the different areas. Some Sundays was an entire day trip, riding the Adirondack Railroad or a boat tour on the St. Lawrence River. Many many memories to cherish by so many.
There will be another empty seat at the Holidays table, the campfires wont burn so bright, the camp chair rocker won't rock anymore and the Chauffeur will hang up his Chauffeurs Hat after one more special trip to the River. “We love you Mom – We love you Grandma”
It was Kathryn's wish that there be no services. Private arrangements will be at the convenience of the family.
