Aunt Kathryn was a cherished aunt of mine and one of my mother's dear Baker sisters. All 3 sisters had a beautiful spirit and cared for each other throughout their lives. She created a loving home where I loved to visit as a kid, raised a great family and passed on her many talents. Katie's Devil's Food Cake was famous--you are lucky if you have her recipe!
