Kata was always involved in activities. She played basketball in elementary school and rowed on an award winning crew team in high school.

She played on the Purdue women’s team that won a regional championship and played in a national championship tournament in Oregon. In one of the summers, she played on the ultimate frisbee team that won the city-wide Pittsburgh Summer League championship.
She was dedicated to her family, providing loving care to her three young children as a homemaker. She was active in supporting the children’s schools and served as the President of the cooperative pre-school her children attended. Through her college experiences, children’s school activities and church, she formed many strong, caring friendships. Kata always maintained a positive outlook on life even during the long time that she battled the many cancer treatments and issues, with the loving support of her husband, family, and friends. She also greatly enjoyed gardening as a creative and relaxing activity.
