    My deepest sympathy to the Scott family. Katie was my closest friend, her love and allegiance to her family and friends was strong and true. Her wit was quick and on point,with that sparkle in her beautiful blue eyes.I will cherish the memories of the time and our many adventures we had together.

    My thoughts and heartfelt prayers go out to the Scott family for the loss of a wonderful woman that I went to high school with. Her name was Cathlene but all of her friends at school knew her as Katie. I’ve always known Katie as a fun loving person that always was friendly to everyone especially to someone like me who was very shy with people. I remember going on ski trips with our school’s ski club and often skiing with her. I often thought about her as I do with other friends from high school as I reminisce about my past. She will be greatly missed by Scranton Tech’s Class of 1986.

    I just happened to find this news this now, I am saddened beyond words.
    I lived in the Hill district of Scranton for a short time in the mid 80’s and met “Katie” through mutual friends. She was a beautiful soul.. I will forever miss the crazy good times, wacky antics, and those runs to Scott’s Market! May her memory be a blessing, you will forever be missed..
