Why Kathy's House
Kathy Criswell-Martin lived a life based on her faith and filled with uncountable acts of kindness to others. Her passing has inspired the creation of Kathy’s House Foundation to not only honor Kathy’s life but build a lasting legacy to that life well lived! The goal of Kathy’s House will be to provide a “home” environment for families and patients at Reynolds Memorial motivated by that indomitable spirit. Families facing a medical crisis, long term care or oncological services are often in need of a place for comfort and support. Kathy’s house served as the center of our family and was the epitome of comfort. But her caring nature extended well beyond that. Friends, friends of friends, neighbors, or any soul in need was welcome at Kathy’s house. Holiday’s and special occasions were filled with love, laughter and the warmness there. And it’s that environment that we seek to provide with the creation of Kathy’s House.
