Kathy Jo Taylor lives in Beloit, Wisconsin and graduated from University of Wisconsin, Whitewater with a degree in Corporate Communication in 2014. She is currently an Instructor at the University Of Wisconsin Whitewater, a Teacher at Blackhawk Technical College and Director at Frontline Youth Initiative in Beloit WI.

Among many accomplishments in her life, Kathy is the wife of Adam Taylor, a mother, grandmother and a faithful and loving friend to many. She has pastored a progressive church ministry called The Red Door and assisted in the operations of her family’s legacy outreach ministry, The Overflowing Cup Total Life Center in Beloit, established April 19, 1974 to present.

Late in December, 2016 it was confirmed that Kathy was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Mark and Gretch Hladish, Jo Hodgins, Rosewood Staff and Families want to invite all of Kathy’s friends, family and supporters to an afternoon and evening Celebration for Kathy Taylor – a dinner and musical concert benefit – all proceeds going directly to the Taylor family to assist in this challenging time.
