A wedding planner who was “a model” before she quit her job to help pay for her father’s medical expenses has died.
Katie G. was 38 when she lost her job as a wedding planner in 2015, but she worked through it, helping her dad pay for his care for the baby, according to her obituary on the Nurse Blogger blog.
She was “an amazing mother, grandmother, aunt, sister and friend to everyone who met her,” her obits read.
“She is truly a special woman who will be greatly missed by all of us who knew her.”
Katies obit was shared on Facebook and Twitter in the wake of her death.
The obit said G was a “model of service, dignity and commitment to others” who was deeply saddened by the death of her husband, who also suffered from Parkinson’s disease.
The obit also said G’s father, David G. Kallman, died from complications of Parkinson’s, but that she was able to “rebuild her own life” after her husband’s death.
“Katie loved all of her family and friends, including her son David, her daughters, daughters-in-law and friends.
She always had a smile on her face,” the obit read.
She had worked at several hospitals in New York and New Jersey before retiring in 2015.
David Kallmann was “the greatest dad ever, and I’ll always remember him for the things he taught me, the way he was always looking out for others, and the love that he gave me and my family,” G’s obitment said.
G’s obituaries on the Nurse Blogger site are the second time she’s passed away, according to her obituary on the site.
Her obit on the website lists her as having been born in Los Angeles, California, on July 1, 1977, and having lived in Los Santos, California.
Katie was known for her beautiful style and her ability to capture the attention of people who would not normally look at her, said her obittuary.
She would be remembered as a “good listener and very talented photographer” with an “enthusiasm and enthusiasm for photography.”
