First and foremost, Kate, was a homemaker to her children and husband, Kevin Junior Hill, whom she married on September 14, 2019.   Kate was the rock of the family the so-called heart and soul.   She had a great sense of humor the constant instigator and encourager.   She was outgoing and memorable, her laugh was infectious and filled the room.   Kate was well-known for her favorite word when having conversation, "Anywho", and was surely the Tik-Tok queen!
