Kathryn S. Killpack Tarter (February 3, 1928 - June 16, 2024)

Kathryn S. Killpack Tarter, 96, passed away peacefully on the morning of June 16, 2024 at the Villa in Green River, Wyoming. She was born on February 3, 1928 in Castle Dale, Utah.

She graduated from South Emery High School in Ferron, Utah.  She was quite the tennis player back in the day.  After moving to Green River, she fell in love with the sport of golf and won many tournaments around the state.

She worked at Stauffer Chemical as a receptionist for many years.  After she retired, she worked for Green River High School as a study hall teacher and earned the reputation of the “no-nonsense, follow-the-rules” teacher.  She was tough but she enjoyed the students.  She was a feisty force of nature that enjoyed her family and friends on and off the golf course and at the Senior Center.
