Catherine was born on July 16, 1925 and passed away on Monday, September 30, 2019.

Catherine was a resident of California at the time of passing.

She studied in her home state at Marycrest and Iowa State Teachers College, and received her teaching degree from Lesley College in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Growing up on a farm, Kay wanted to see the world and used the summer vacations during her early teaching jobs for adventures in Yellowstone, Vancouver Island, San Francisco, Miami, Cuba, New York City, New Hampshire and finally Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she met her future husband, Roy W. Roberts.

During their courtship she was offered a position teaching at the Nuremberg American School (US Army) in Germany, 1952-1953.
