My condolences on your loss. Katie was a great lady. I am sorry I won't be able to be there as I am in Florida trying to rest up after losing my wife 3 weeks ago.

I had the pleasure and privilege of working with Katie in the early 1980's at Marathon in Corporate Accounting before she retired. Katie was a true professional and a real joy to work with. Her level of commitment to the job, attention to detail and willingness to assist others was outstanding. She was an example that many of us admired and tried to emulate. Beyond that, she was an even better person, as all of you know. I always enjoyed visiting with her and Gwen when I saw them around Findlay following her retirement. My deepest sympathy and condolences to you during this difficult time. I know she will be missed.

Katie was one of my favorite cousins. Such a sweet person. Had so much fun the summers, I visited when I was young. I am the youngest of first cousins in the Barrell family and have so many fond memories of visiting in Findlay. We will not be able to come to the Funeral Service but our hearts will be with you all.
Love, Nancy and Ron

I am so sad to hear about Katie. At least we were able to have a nice visit a few years ago on my trip back to Ohio.
She was one great lady and so very sweet! It is like losing a sister as we grew up together. So many wonderful memories.
RIP dear Katie!
Love, Shirley
