KATHRYN (KATHERINE) A. LYNCH
"Katie" was born on 15 December 1881. She married Tony R. Lynch and came to Prescott from Pennsylvania on 4 January 1925 with her three children: Helen Gay, Cecil, and Jessie (Mrs. James) Brandt, the latter being ill with tuberculosis.

Katie was a charter member of the Prescott Garden Club and organized the Pinecrest Ladies Club for those who were far from home with a tubercular in the family. Katie consoled and helped these families in many ways. She belonged to the Eastern Star, Monday Club, Smoki People, Elks Ladies, and the Congregational Church. Those that knew her enjoyed her quick Irish wit. She lived at 214 Apache Drive, Pine Crest.

Katie died on 2 December 1959 in Phoenix and is buried in Mountain View Cemetery.
