She married Buster Green in 1942 in Miami, making their home in the Globe-Miami area. In 1959, they moved to Roosevelt Lake to raise their family while Buster worked for ADOT. The Greens moved to Young in 1980 where they lived until 2000. After living 20 years in Young, they moved to Show Low to be closer to their kids.
Kathleen, affectionately called "Cappy" by her family, was a great oil painting artist, seamstress and crafter. Kathleen volunteered for many community projects throughout her life. She enjoyed the outdoors, going on picnics, long walks, hunting and fishing. She especially enjoyed working in her yard, where she grew beautiful flowers and vegetables that she canned every year. Her greatest joys in life were her children and grandchildren. Kathleen will be warmly remembered and greatly missed by her family and friends.
