Kathleen and Leo started an accounts receivable business in 1963, but after Leo's death she went to work for the William Alford Company for almost twenty years in their offices. She retired at age 62, but worked several part-time jobs until she retired permanently. She thoroughly enjoyed playing cards, especially pinochle, and traveling with friends and family. She was a fanatic Chicago Cubs fan and loved Notre Dame Football. She also enjoyed golf, and loved playing with her sons. She had many wonderful friends through her life and sadly many are no longer with us. She was truly loved and will be missed by many, many people.
