In Memory of Kathy Wood

It is with great sadness that we share our beloved colleague and friend Kathy Wood has passed away. Kathy was the membership manager-team lead for the Blue Springs / Grain Valley area.
Kathy dedicated her life to the Girl Scout mission, as a volunteer and as a 28 year professional. She exemplified our mission; her constant courage through a painful battle; her confidence in knowing that the difference she made in girls' lives would continue on; and her strong character which serves as an inspiration to us all!
We will miss you, Kathy! Read more about Kathy's life now.
Leave your thoughts about Kathy on the GSKSMO Facebook Page.
