They travelled extensively, visiting Europe often, and lived life to the fullest. Katharin had a great sense of style, and was a gifted seamstress and clothing designer. She had a great love of the outdoors, singing and creativity and her kind and caring nature touched many people. Katharin was a bright light in the lives of others and will be dearly missed by her friends and colleagues at Marlborough House, where she lived very happily for many years. Finally, her deep love, loyalty and devotion to family will live on in the hearts of all who knew and loved this wonderful woman.
