She was the daughter of the late Thomas Monroe Latham and Olga Freda Latham.

Born in Columbia City, Indiana on November 4, 1953, her family moved to Bellefontaine in 1960 where she graduated from Bellefontaine High School in 1972. From 1972-1976 she attended Bowling Green State University where she received a Bachelor's Degree in Interior Design. In 1977, she opened Kathleen Interiors, a design studio specializing in custom order designs for both residential and commercial markets serving the Greater Miami Valley.

Kathleen was a licensed realtor and received great pleasure working with first time home buyers and investors. She was a former Vice President of the Downtown Merchants Association and was a former member of the Logan County Chamber of Commerce. She was one of the first group of women invited to join Kiwanis who's members assisted in creating ways to serve local children in the community through service projects and fundraising.
