She married Marcus Morgan in June of 2012 and, even though they had no children of their own, they raised Katrina’s together.

Her last job before her illness was at Castle Hill east of Oxford. She had a tender and loving heart and was friendly towards people. But nothing meant more to her than her family, especially family gatherings where she could love on the children.
