Kathryn was born on July 28th, 1970 to Jerry and Kathleen Cooper in Dallas, Texas. After high school, Kathryn married her high school sweetheart, Kirk, on July 9th 1988. She joined him in his military career and moved to Omaha Nebraska. Over the next 13 years, she pursued her dream of becoming a nurse and helping others. After being away for 20 years, they settled back in Anton in 2006 where she worked and went to school again to gain her RN from South Plains College. Nursing and her grandkids were her passion but, quilting was her obsession. Just ask the group of ladies that would meet as often as possible to swap ideas and stories while making items that showed their talent and love for giving.
