(1956-1981)

Like her father and grandfather, Kathy was a roper. From early childhood, she dreamed of becoming the world’s best woman roper. Kathy won her first rodeo event, team roping, at fourteen as the only female competitor. She won her first world title in 1977. Before her career was cut short by cancer, Kathy became a major competitor in the professional ranks of the GRA, where she worked all the roping events.
