Katherine L. Robertson

1946 – 2017

Kathy was born in Seattle, she went to Holy Names Academy, Highline College and worked at Boeing, Western Airlines and Delta Airlines as a flight attendant.  She retired after 38 years in the air.  She loved to travel for work and pleasure trips and spending time on the water and in her beautiful garden.  Flowers were her passion.

 In her spare time she was an avid reader and loved classic movies.

 She will be remembered for her zest for life and for her infectious laugh.

 Kathy was preceded in death by her father W. Robertson and her mother Elizabeth (Betty) Robertson.

 She will be missed by all her many friends and family across the globe.

 She will be inurned at Bonney-Watson Washington Memorial Park, 16445 International Blvd, SeaTac.

 In respect for Kathy’s wishes no service is planned. 

 Any donations in her memory would serve the good stead.

My father knew Kathy and me and my brother spent a few wonderful summers with Kathy back in the 70's when we were kids. I am so sad to hear of her passing. I have a few pictures of her and us if anyone wants to email me. 1985cdg@gmail.com I would love to hear from anyone that can catch me up with her life the past 40 years.

Gosh, when you work with someone for 36 years, their life is woven into yours like a fine patchwork quilt. All the memories shared at work, laughter belted out on layovers, adventures to new cities and new bases new airplanes; Kathy is as familiar to me as my own family. I will miss your laughter and sense of fun. Rest in Peace and make a place for us in Stewardess Heaven. God Bless

Dear Kathy,

You will be missed.

We first met in the 1960's at Holy Names on Capitol Hill. You were quite an addition to the cast of personalities in our class. You brought so much laughter and fun to the class. Thank You!

Several years later we met up again, when we both flew for Western Air lines and then Delta Air lines. Even More Fun, plus lots of Travel! After September 11th, we both commuted to Atlanta and from there, traveled the globe.

Love and very Fond memories will always be.
