Kathryn Cremeans was a long-standing resident of Pasco County. She was successful businesswoman, who was active in the local politics of New Port Richey. Kathryn served on the West Pasco Board of Realtor and was on the Advisory Board for Pasco County School.
She was also an avid horseback rider. She and her daughters could be found at any one of the local horse shows, or on one of the many local equine paths. And her horsemanship was outstanding! Kathy, as many called her, was a wealth of equine knowledge and shared her knowledge with anyone who would ask for it.
She also enjoyed assisting her husband, Don with live dove releases for memorials, weddings, family gatherings and special occasions.
As you can see, Kathryn was a wonderful person, full of life. She was active in local food pantries and had a special heart for those who were in need. Her smile would brighten up any room. But more than that, she was a lady, a very loving mother, a wonderful “sis” and an elegant wife. And was greatly loved by all that knew her.
