One thought on “Kathleen Red Elk

  1. Kathy and I became best friends and actually blood-sisters in 1965-66. Her mother made me a beautiful quilt, and also gave me a bag of pemmican. I am so sorry for your loss. I have always missed her, and looked for and inquired about her numerous times. I loved her very much, especially her sense of humor. Pretty sure no one will ever see this. As I read her obituary I see that she lost a son named Joe. So did I, in 1994 when he was 23.
