Kathryn L. CORY Kathy passed away June 29th in Burien. She was born in Seattle to Robert and Joan Johnston on August 19th, 1947 and lived in Burien for most of her life. She worked for Value Village for 20 years; one of her avocations was costume design for stage productions and she was a vital part of Burien Little Theatre for 10 years. She is mourned by her husband of 28 years, Craig, her son Brian Torrey, her daughter Shannon Torrey, her brother Ric Johnston, her best friend Barbara Byrne, 11 grandchildren, and a nephew, as well as countless other friends and relations who were fortunate to know her and will miss her immensely. All of us who knew Kathy remember how enthusiastically and zestfully she approached life, how she saw the beauty around her, and added to it with her boundless creativity and talent. We'll all miss her and wish her the best as she takes a deep breath and plunges headlong into her next adventure. At Kathy's request, there are no services; in lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Kathy's name to the American Lung Association.
