Kathy married Joseph M. Torok on June 14, 1980. They enjoyed 44 years of marriage where they were blessed with two children. Kathy carried a passion for many things including landscape design. She was fortunate to spend a majority of her career supporting her customers and friends, first, at Lynwood Nursery and then at Stan's Garden Center West. She loved training her dogs Jeter and Jax, taking long walks with her husband and traveling to North Carolina to visit her children and grandchildren. Kathy enjoyed cheering on her favorite teams, the New York Yankees and the Kansas City Chiefs, watching the horse races at the casino and surprising everyone with her luck at playing the lottery. She was known for her sense of humor, and you could always count on sharing a good laugh with her. Kathy was also an auxiliary member of Erie Elks Lodge 67.
