She graduated from the University of Florida in 1972 and was a Hillsborough County elementary school teacher for 30 years. In April 1979, she married john Dorman and they raised one son, Brian.
Kathi had a youthful spirit for her entire life and had a unique love of Christmastime. As a child and young adult, she had a driving spirit and great resiliency never letting her physical disabilities hold her back. Teaching was a passion and Kathi spent endless hours building the perfect bulletin board or decorating for even the most minor of holidays. She had a strong attachment to family and built relationships with friends that lasted for decades. Wherever she was, she was always ready to make a friend. Later in life, British mystery shows were a pastime when on the couch and board games were always a favorite with friends.
Kathi is survived by her husband John; her brother Tim; and her son Brian. Due to difficulties surrounding the current pandemic, the memorial service will be held at a later date to be determined in the future.
