Kathy dreamed large, and it was no secret that she knew how to work a crowd, either to her own benefit or to the detriment of an opponent. Her charismatic persona, at least at her career’s outset, was difficult, if not impossible, to match. “She would walk into a room and light it up,” said Phil Alfano, her brother, who works as an educator in Modesto, California.
She seemed to enjoy flying back and forth across the country, but it soon became clear that her being gone all the time had begun to take its toll on her first marriage, which was short-lived and ended in divorce.
