Kathy Knudsen came into my life about 50 years ago. She was one of those rare people who make a mark and are never forgotten, even when I haven’t seen Kathy for over 40 years…. Kathy was one of the world’s truly wonderful humans. Those of us that have had the chance to love her will miss her. My condolences to the Millhoff and Knudsen families. I know that you will miss her so much.

Sending my sincerest sympathy. Kathy and her family would come to my house on Sundays for Bahai gatherings when she lived in Florida. I remember her as a sweet, kind and happy person.

Dear Brian, Krishna and Rivka, Kathy served others first in her many roles as wife, mother, teacher, friend, Baha'i Pioneer and many more. Her service to others was recognized when she received the 2012 Honoree Award at the KUAM's Careforce Honors ceremony. She brought us joy and inspired us as we worked along side her. She always had a huge gathering at Thanksgiving and she did most of the cooking! I loved her expressions when she would say, "Nice to see you" or "See you later". Thank you, Kathy.

My condolences and heartfelt prayers. Mrs. Kathy was a teacher like no other. She embodied hard work and expected nothing less of her students. She played a big part in the man I have become. I am immeasurably blessed to have had her as a teacher. She will be missed.
