“It was a honor to be able to come dressed nice for Kathryn”
"Even though Kathryn had a lot of disabilities, she never let that bring her down. She was always smiling and always happy!”

On September 26, 2016, Kathryn Michelle Hone, passed away peacefully while being surrounded by her family.
Kathryn was known for her loving spirit and positive attitude toward anything. She loved all kinds of music, jokes, sports, balloons, donuts and toys. Kathryn loved everyone, especially those who served her.
Savannah Rowley, sophomore and special friend, shared, “I met Kathryn in 7th grade in Peer Tutor I was always paired up with her. Soon we found ourselves going on long walks and watching movies together. Even though Kathryn had a lot of disabilities she never let that bring her down. She was always smiling and always happy!”
Savannah Rowley shared an experience they had with Kathryn in class one day. They were having root beer floats together. After receiving her root beer float, Kathryn went to spoon some, but the cup tipped and spilled all over her lap. Instead of getting upset about it, Kathryn started laughing and just started to eat out of her lap. Kathryn always appreciated everything that she had, and what she had made her happy.
Holly Hilton said, “The Young Women and I help finish her a medallion before she had passed away, and I’m so grateful that we could get it done.”
Kathryn received her medallion the day before she died. It was simple but the best way to show their appreciation for Kathryn.
The Bruins also showed their gratitude by dressing nice on September 27th.
“It was a honor to be able to come dressed nice for Kathryn,” said Tristen Noble.
Before Savannah had to leave the hospital, Kathryn held her hand with all her strength. Savannah also didn’t want to go, but she had to. In one word she said “good-bye” and had to leave her friend to rest.
Kathryn was a bright soul and will be missed by all. Rest in Peace.
