Kathryn Marie Byron was born on September 8, 1969, in St. Paul. She grew up on a farm with her family where she loved being around all the animals. She worked at various different jobs, but spent most of her life as a PCA at Lake Song Assisted Living in Onamia. Kat had a special connection with the elderly and loved taking care of the residents at Lake Song. She was very adventurous and spontaneous and liked to make people laugh.

She also loved small dogs that she always had throughout her life. Above all else, she will be remembered for being an amazing mother, grandmother, sister, niece, and friend to all who knew her.
