Katherine is the daughter of John Andrew Dillon and Emma Goodwill Troutman. Wife of the late Ernest Lewis Baxter of Cloverdale, California.

At the age of 16, Katherine met Ernest while attending The University of Berkeley where she was obtaining her Bachelors Degree in Reforestation. She was the first woman in California to take "mens" courses in the field.

Katherine and Ernest were married February 29th, 1928 on a leap day and only celebrated their anniversary on that day every 4 years. From this union 2 sons; Warren Ernest and Clay Baxter were born.

Katherine taught nursery school for 35 years and was a member of the horticultural society. She loved gardening and 100 plants on her property all native to California. She loved to bird watch, play Bridge and crossword puzzles. She was a very good seamstress as well as knitting and crocheting sweaters, dresses and blankets. She canned peaches and grew most of her own fruits and vegetables, she was a very good cook.

Grandma as we called her would make us playdough, let us paint, and run around her beautiful home. It was always nice to visit.
