Kat worked as a waitress for many years before becoming a Sound Engineer for several bands. Katrina loved music and art, passions she shared with her daughters, friends, and family. Many family gatherings involved a jam session. Kat’s biggest quality was her love for her family. Kat supported people following their dreams, no matter what they were up against. She was a mother to many people. She took in anybody that needed a hand or just a little extra love. She had a beautiful, kind soul and shared her love with anyone. Momma always said she owed her adult life to the family who agreed to give her their son's liver when she needed an organ transplant. She was an avid supporter of organ donations following that blessing. She was a member of Victory Christian Church in Goose Creek, SC.
Katrina is survived by her daughters: Amanda and Jessica Kolb; and grandchildren: Hunter, Joseph, and Angela Phillips. She is preceded in death by her parents and husband.
