Kitty, as she was called, was the eldest of four children of Gordon Davidson Reid and Mary Masterson Reid. She was named after her two grandmothers. Her confirmation name was Rita.

She married Jacob Hise Holcombe, Jr. They had three children: Joan Marie in September 1925, Ernest Thomas in January 1928 and Jacob Hise III in December 1928.

Kitty resided in Lambertville all her life. She was the first person in her family to have the benefit of advanced education. She became a Registered Nurse. She was well known in the Lambertville area as a school and community nurse.

She helped her sister Marie become a registered nurse as well.

Kitty was buried from St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church in Lambertville.

She was the grandmother of 12 and the great-grandmother of 18 as of late 2007.
