Katherine was born August 4, 1959 in Marshall, Texas and grew up in Marshall, Texas and Mesquite, Texas. She moved to Shreveport in 1983 and in 1988 she met and married the love of her life, Calvin McGill. They spent the next 33 years raising their 10 children and loving and cherishing their 28 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. She cherished many things in life, but nothing meant more to her than being Nana. Nana loved everything family. Cookouts, game nights, birthday parties or just hanging out and having fun. She was always there to treasure the moments and most importantly love on her grand babies. She never missed an event or an opportunity to spend time with her kids or grandchildren. She was always seen smiling at gatherings. Her laugh was contagious and could be heard a mile away. Mom loved everyone wholeheartedly from her kids, to her grandkids, to her kid-in-laws. She loved everyone the same and would do anything to help anyone when she could. There wasn't a person she met that she couldn't love as her own. She will be deeply missed by everyone who knew her.
