Kathryn Anna Dolk Pupuhi

I said a prayer for you today,
And know God must have heard.
I felt the answer in my heart
Although he spoke no word.

I didn’t ask for wealth or fame
I knew you wouldn’t mind.
I asked Him to send treasures
Of a far more lasting kind.

I asked that he’d be near you
At the start of each new day,
To grant you health and blessings
And friends to share your way.

I asked for happiness for you
In all things great and small,
But it was for his loving care
I prayed for most of all.

Whether you knew her as Kathryn, Kate, Katie, Katy, Kati, Kat, we believe you are here to celebrate her life. This page is set up to keep friends and family and loved ones informed on the celebration being planned to honor Kathryn's life and passing.

Memorial Information [UPDATED]

There will be a memorial for Kathryn on Saturday, October 17, 2020, at 1PM Mountain Daylight Savings Time (MDT). The memorial will be at Kanamu and Kathryn's home, but because of COVID there will only be a few in attendance. So that anyone who wants to participate may do so using the following ZOOM meeting link. For those who have not used ZOOM, you don't need an account, but you do need to download the APP to your phone or computer.

You can also add the information for the Memorial Service to your calendar: ADD to your calendar.

One of Kathryn's close friends is heading this up for the family. (She is AWESOME!) If you want to participate with a reading or anything else, please contact Meghan Elisabeth:

Memorial Follow Up

A special thank you for all that celebrated with us on 10/17/2020 either in person or via Zoom. We all felt it went off very well, all except for the actual recording of the Zoom meeting. Hence, I wanted to post this video to show and give my thanks to everyone again. We were blessed to have 118 people log on to the Zoom service, but unfortunately I did not click the box where it saved that history of who were the 118 people. Please email with your information, and some items will be mailed to you if you would like.

Thank you again, Kanamu

This is a video put together to honor Her memory, and to allow all that loved and cherished her to get a sense of Her Spirit, Her Being, Her Aura!

This is Her room where she slept and prayed. We just added all of the pictures on the wall.

And YES, there is a surprise guest singer after Billie Eilish in the video. The ONE and ONLY!

Memorial Contributions

Kathryn LOVED flowers, but we are a little tight for space at her memorial. We ask that you contact sister Sally at if you would like to contribute flowers.

Barrett House

If you would like to make a donation in Kathryn's name, we know she would love to see it go to the Barrett House here in Albuquerque. Here's how to donate in her memory: Go to The Barrett Foundation website, hit any of the donate buttons, and on the donate page you may choose to dedicate your donation and it will ask you the type of donation and the tribute name. It's quite simple.
