She was born in Kansas and raised in Wisconsin. Katherine lived a rich and fulfilling life including working in the Richmond Unified School District, cooking, sewing teddy bears, and was a full-time RVer moving all around the mainland before moving to Maui to live with her daughter Robin and son-in-law, David Hong.
Katherine was a devoted wife and loving mother and grandmother who will be greatly missed.
She is survived by her husband, Joseph Rodrigues; sons, Stephen Hamilton, Van (Faith) Hamilton, Kirk (Kathleen) Hamilton,; stepdaughters, Donna (Robert) Clark, and Deanna (Ronald Scott) Hooker; daughter, Robin Hong and her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
There will be no services at this time, however, a family gathering will be held at the residence at a future date.
