Katie worked as a teacher's aide and school bus driver in the French Gulch-Whiskeytown School District for 36 years. She found so much joy and happiness working with tomorrow's leaders. She loved when former students would come back to visit. Katie was also awarded Teacher's Aide of the year from Shasta County Office of Education.

Katie was on the French Gulch Volunteer Fire Department for 20 years. In those 20 years she reached her goal of becoming chief. Katie was the first female fire chief in Shasta County. No matter what time that alarm sounded she was up and ready to respond. Being a volunteer was a very important part of her life.

Katie was born and raised in Red Bluff, CA. She was a graduate of Our Lady of Mercy Academy. She moved to French Gulch in 1968.

Katie is survived by her three children: Brian (Mary) Pearson of Anderson, CA, Lesley (Richard) Pearson-Thompson of French Gulch, CA and adoptive daughter, Heather (Bobby) VanHorn of Shingletown, CA. Katie is also survived by grandchildren: Alex Thompson, Peyton Pearson, Jacob and Justin Costa, Joseph and Shawn VanHorn; brothers, Roger (Wanda) Eusted of Hawthorn, NV, Kenneth (Becky) Eusted of Red Bluff, CA; sisters: Nina Bennett (Leonard) of Happy Valley, CA, Maralyn (Mike) Pettett of Tacoma, WA and Judy Britton of French Gulch, CA and many nieces and nephews. Katie was preceded in death by her husband, David Pearson; brothers: Herman Johnson, John, Billy and Michael Eusted and sister, Karen Spangle.

We will hold an Open House/Walk Down Memory Lane on June 15, 2013 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the French Gulch School, 11442 Cline Gulch Rd, French Gulch. Come prepared to share stories, laugh, love and meet up with old friends.
