Kate was best known for cooking, sewing and her green thumb. She always had a pan of biscuits sitting on her antique Kelvinator stove and her chicken and dumplings were favored by many. She was the community seamstress and beautician. She took pleasure in feeding family and friends, sharing her garden vegetables and creating gorgeous flower arrangements especially for Sunday morning church services.
Her sewing specialty was clothing and quilts. Kate Box was a very unique woman whose memory will live on in the hearts of many.
