Mary Kate worked for many years as a home healthcare worker. She was a caring, extremely giving and loving woman with a great sense of humor. Mary Kate was an amazing and original “scratch kitchen” cook and she loved having everyone over to eat…favorites were her biscuits and cornbread. Mary Kate was well loved and will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
