Kathy Holsonbake became a mom much later in life. She married her high school sweetheart 17 years after the couple first met and inherited her daughter by another mother when she was 35 and her daughter, Kelsey, was 10. She gave birth to her son, Levi, at 36.
She spent 10 years as a television news reporter covering the Oklahoma City bombing, Margaret Rudin murder trial, and crime in Las Vegas. Her rural home is a world away from Sin City, but it’s the dream she thought would never come true. She is the proud owner and operator of a Stihl gas chainsaw, and makes treasure from trash. Kathy’s also an above average cook, champion of the elderly, and an ever-improving mother.
She and her husband are recovering prostate cancer survivors. She hopes what they have learned from their journey will help other couples navigate the roller coaster ride of recovery.
