Kathy was beautiful, smart, a great wife, mother, teacher. Many happy memories working in the bakery, going to Rainbow beach every summer Sunday, being bridesmaids for each other. As a teen, I loved going to the Dunker home. To Mati, children, grands, sisters and brother, thoughts and prayers to you all! Sincerely, Flo
