On February 16th, 1974 she married David Dahlsad and moved to the family farm near Georgetown, Minnesota, where their children, Derek, Simon, and Erin were born.
Over the years Kathy worked a variety of jobs, from designing menus for computer kiosks to managing video rental stores to working for the Riverton (WY) Ranger newspaper.

Kathy loved going to garage sales in search of interesting collectibles like her favorite, toy animals with wheels. She loved caring for animals, especially dogs.
