Kathleen C. (Lester) Miller was born May 20, 1953 and passed away on May 30, 2002.
The following was written by Kathy's brother, Mel Lester Jr - 2011
"Kathy died in the Spring of 2002 after her body rejected a bone marrow transplant. I was the donor and her death was crushing. Kathy and I were very close and obviously, I knew her quite well for all of her too brief 49 year life -- through our school days, her marriage, and two cancers. She was a cheerful giver, always sacrificing her own dreams to support those of her husband and daughter. When she knew the end was near, all her affairs were put in order. I never knew her to say an unkind word about anyone.
Circumstances permitting, I know Kathy would really have loved to attend her class reunion ."
