Kate Rivers Obituary, Death –Our hearts are filled with a deep sense of loss as we bid farewell to Kate Rivers. She passed away on Sunday of this week. She was a member of the 1998 Team that competed in Wolfsburg, Germany, and brought home a bronze medal for both the team and the individual competition. In the year 2000, she returned from Austria with an Individual Gold medal. Our thoughts and prayers are with her loved ones during this difficult time.
The fact that she had such a big heart and loved all of the people in her life was what developed her into such a remarkable individual. Anyone who knew her would say that she made their day better with her contagious personality and hilarious quips, and that she frequently went out of her way to assist other individuals. She was a strong and self-reliant woman who cherished spending time with her family, especially her children and grandkids, and the memories of the moments they shared together will live on in the hearts of those who were closest to her forever.
Fishing, camping, swimming, riding motorcycles, and playing softball were just a few of Kate’s favourite outdoor activities, which she enjoyed doing in her spare time. In addition to this, she loved to dance to her favourite music, do crafts and other works of art, and spend time with her three Pit Bulls, whose names were Una, Tyson, and Baxter. Her father, Michael “Mike” Rivers of Kennerdell, her mother, Debra Rivers (David McEndoo) of Pittsburgh, her two daughters, Taylor Rivers (Jose Martinez) of Oil City and Kalynn Kachik (Gaven Rinker) of South Carolina, and her two grandchildren, Samuel and Mia Martinez of Oil City, are the only members of her family remaining to carry on her legacy and honour her memory.
