She was the oldest surviving of 29 Tong cousins. She attended UW-Whitewater and joined the family business, Malvetz Furniture and Gas Station, in 1952. Her parents had established the business the year Katie was born. She continued to own and operate it until 1973 when she retired and sold to the VanDenBogart family. She enjoyed wintering in Florida for many years, volunteering, and spending time with her dear family and friends.

     Katie was a member of the Sturgeon Bay United Methodist Church. She volunteered with the church, the Hospital Auxiliary, delivered Meals on Wheels, was active at the Senior Center, Door County Maritime Museum, and Crossroads at Big Creek.

     She is survived by her 29 first cousins of the Tong Family.
