    That's so sad. She was a major player in Gum printing and gave us so much valuable information. She will be missed. RIP Katharine

    I am shocked and so saddened to hear this news. She was a major contributor on the alt process list and helped so many of us...sending her family much love at this difficult time.

    She was always so very open to sharing her vast wealth of knowledge on gum printing. While I may have never met her in person, she certainly has touched my life. She will be missed indeed.

    This is such sad news.
    I corresponded with her once and she was so enthusiastic and generous. I'm not sure I'd have persisted with Gum without her input.
    I was really looking forward to showing her what I was working on.

    Vale Katherine Thayer
