She was born August 6, 1947, in Utica, the daughter of the late Lloyd and Marguerite Hibbard Jackson. Kathy was a graduate of Sauquoit Valley High School.

For a time, Kathy volunteered with the American Red Cross. In her free time, she was a talent with ceramics, creating many gifts for her family over the years.
