Kathleen Ann Squires was born Jan. 9, 1957, to Clarence and Isabelle Dunn in Havre, joining her siblings Sandy, Ron, Harris, and Wayne and a year later, Karen. Her father passed away shortly after Kathy’s family moved to Great Falls in 1961. She grew up there, attended grade school, high school, graduating in 1975. She went to a year of Vo-Tech School for Accounting. Kathy and Bill Squires fell in love and started a family with the birth of their first child, William Walden, in 1977 followed by Amy Lane in 1979. Kathy was a strong woman who gave birth to both of her children at home. She was a very loving wife who devoted her entire life to Bill, Wil, Amy, and her two step-daughters, Brenda and Cara. She adored her nephews, nieces, and grandchildren. What completed her happiness was serving her God, Jehovah. She was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses on April 27, 2002.
