Katherine was a singer in the choir and Chairman of the Kitchen Committee, sharing her love of cooking with others. Katherine also attended Shining Light Celebration Church. She drew strength from serving the Lord with her loving husband of 32 years, Minister Robert L. Peyton, Jr., as they served in the Nursing Home Outreach Ministry.
