Known best as "K.C." to her family and friends, she spent her last 17 years residing in Sun City with her much loved sister Lucy, who passed in 2019.

K.C. was a devoted braille transcriptionist for the blind. She said it was her calling to do this work and thoroughly loved what she did and for such a great need. K.C. was a lifelong lover of cats, a puzzle enthusiast, and enjoyed a variety of crafts throughout her lifetime. She was an active volunteer for the Sun City Library for many years and donated to many organizations and cat rescues that were important to her.

K.C. leaves behind her only remaining sibling Webb Comfort of New York State, and many close friends whom she treasured.
