Kathryn passed away at the young age of 37 after a two year battle with breast cancer. Her six children at the time of her passing ranged in age from 3 to 15 years old. The most important thing Kathryn did was to instill in each of her children a legacy of faith, service, love and compassion. This legacy is alive and strong within her six children. The Kathryn R. Nelson Memorial Foundation was created to help us continue that wonderful legacy.
Kathryn could always be found doing kind things for those around her. She epitomized charity. Thankfully, some of Kathryn's friends collected memories from family and friends and compiled a book about this legacy. One cannot help but be inspired by the stories of Kathryn's caring and giving spirit that fill the pages of this book. It is with that spirit that we created this foundation.
