Baker City, Oregon
Kathryn Ann “Kate” Jackson, 47, of Baker City, died Sept. 14, 2006.
Her memorial Mass was celebrated Wednesday at St. Francis de Sales Cathedral. Father Julian Cassar was the celebrant. There was a potluck reception afterward at the Eagles Lodge.
Kate loved to laugh and was so full of life, her family said. “We will miss her boisterous laugh as you usually heard her before seeing her when you walked into a room,” they said.
Kate loved to cook and throw dinner parties. She also loved to sew and play video games. Her favorite hobby was fishing and she always had a tackle box in her hand if she heard someone was going fishing.
She moved to Baker City in 1991 and then she and her son moved to Conklin, Mich., in 2002. She returned to Baker City in 2005.
“Kate was a very special mother, daughter, sister, aunt, sister-in-law and friend. She will be missed very much,” her family said.
Survivors include her son, Brandon J. Jackson of Ravenna, Mich.; her parents, William “Bill” Callow and Barbara Twohig Callow; brothers, Bill Callow Jr. of San Mateo, Calif., Patrick Callow and his wife, Vena, of Baker City, Kevin Callow and his wife, Janet, of White Salmon, Wash.; sister, Michelle Paoletti, and her husband, Eric, of Baker City; and her special niece, Meagan Paoletti of Baker City.
Memorial contributions may be made to Gray’s West & Co. Pioneer Chapel to help with the expense of funeral arrangements.
