Katherine Reeder, Memorial Service Sunday, Sep 2, 11 am
This week we said goodbye to a very dear NCSFA longstanding member and Past President, Katherine Reeder.
Katherine had battled cancer for several years, had gone into remission at one point, only to see it return later.
Throughout her trials, she remained positive, optimistic and brave. She retained her great sense of humor and always had a ready smile.
During her time as  NCSFA member, Katherine worked hard to support our society’s activities:
The fundraising Teas for the scholarship fund, the art shows, the workshops and demonstrations, not to mention her full-time dedication as one of its presidents.
Katherine will be greatly missed by all who were privileged to know her. 
We will always remember her. There will be a memorial/celebration of life on Sunday, September 2, 11 am, at the Country Club of Rancho Bernardo, 12280 Greens East Road. Katherine is very much missed.
RSVP is necessary, as soon as possible to Valerie or Kathryn
