Kathy was beautiful and feisty as hell inside and out! She will be missed by many! But she closed Barnum & Baileys before she left!
Cindy, I’m so very sorry for your loss. Prayers for you and your family.
Kathy was my inspiration & idol.
We took a road trip with a car full of animal lovers to Farm Sanctuary one summer , a fun memory.
She knew everything about animal rights & what protest were going on.
We would see eachother yearly for the circus protest & catch up on politics.
I’m grateful Kathy witness the circus no longer exploiting elephants.
Her dedication & protests had a lot to do with that here in Rochester .
I will miss seeing you & learning from you Kathy.
Thank you for your love for animals.
Grateful I had the opportunity to meet & learn from you.
