Resident Spotlight

Katherine “Kathy” Burke

Kathy grew up in Wellington, Kansas. She graduated from Iola High School and attended a year of Junior College @ Iola then went to Kansas State University where she graduated in 1958. Kathy went to work for the Kansas Extension Service and as part of her job she traveled all over the state of Kansas.

During some of her travels she was able to visit New Orleans and fell in love with the city even though she did not get to visit during Mardi Gras, she still fell in love with the city itself.

Kathy eventually returned to school and received a Dual-Masters in Interior Design and Adult Education.

Kathy taught some High School Home Economics and Chemistry for a period of time and was the Junior Class sponsor helping the class produce the Senior Prom.

She then returned to the Extension Service as the County Extension Agent for Eldorado Kansas. It was during this time that by happen stance she came across her property in Horseshoe Bay during a promotional property viewing with friends. She and her husband purchased a lot in Horseshoe Bay and held on to it for a number of years before deciding to make Horseshoe Bay their permanent winter home.

Kathy has four step children, 8 step grandchildren and 9 step great-grand children, but Kathy is the first to let you know she considers all of them as her children.

Kathy is always up for anything and enjoys having a good time, so if you want to have some fun just get to know her and I guarantee it will be well worth your time.
