Kathy and Jeral moved to Breckenridge to open Davis Welding Supply company. Kathy was the bookkeeper and Jeral worked the front. They became an inseparable team. After selling their business, Kathy continued to work as the bookkeeper and accountant as Jeral managed several welding supply stores across the area. Her last bookkeeping position was with Hendrick Medical Supply, where she retired.

Kathy was an organizer and insisted upon keeping a clean and tidy house. She also had an artistic side to her and enjoyed painting, photography, and crochet. These hobbies where enhanced by her love for animals, nature, and the outdoors.
