Katie and David lived near me when my parents lived on 26th & D.  I use to ride bikes with them and we had some great times together.  We rode our bikes on HIghway 80 before it was officially open and I fell and cut my arm during that ride. I think about our fun times together every time I look at the two scares on my left arm. I have very fond memories of those years!

Katie Drown...She and I were close casual friends until February of 1964 when we ran into each other and several others from our class at the Sam's HofBrau on 17th and J streets. After some small talk, I told her I was going to go the San Bernadino, the next morning for my job with the Southern Pacific R.R. and she wanted to go with me and made my promis to take her.

She and I with my '56 NOMAD loaded to the max went to San Bernadino and got an apartment near the road to Lake Arrowhead. I worked the 11pm to 7am shift in Colton and during the day and evenings we tried to ware out her Beattle's records as she brought her record player.

I was a very nice time of my early days and I have thought of her often!   She was one of the nicest people I have had the pleasure to spend signifigant time with and I have always missed knowing what she did with her life..?  If anyone know's and will share it with me I would be very appreciative.    Drex Hansen  Oct 2012

I also knew Katie (and her twin brother David) since the 5th grade at Marshall Elementary.  Katie could charm you, tease you, and in fact maybe not even like you, but she definitely wasn't someone you quickly forgot.  She was smart and funny, and could wrap people around her little finger if she so desired!  I remember our Sophomore year at Sac High when she and I ran for Class Secretary.  I first gave my speech to the Sophomore class audience and I breathed a sigh of relief that I got through it without bungling it.  Then Katie gave her speech.  She had the audience in hysterics because her speech was so witty and funny.  Needless to say, she won the race by a large margin.  And I congratulate her to this day!  She had a reckless side to her that also made her someone so unique and mysterious.  Her life was a troubled one, but I hope she found some joy in it too.  I only have good memories of her.  Rest in Peace Katie.
