This memorial has been established in loving memory of Kathy Fife by her family.
A graduate of the John Herron school of Art from Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana, Kathy was inspired by the beauty of the Sonoran desert and the rich southwest cultural heritage of decorative arts when she moved to Phoenix in 1983.
Kathy brought her artistic gifts and business experience to corporations, non-profits and the retail card and stationery industry when she founded Rizalina Designs. Her products included holiday cards, note cards, bookmarks and magnets. Custom artwork was especially exciting to her as she created products that were unique to each client.
Kathy also received her real estate license and was very successful in helping many people relocate to the Phoenix area. She was also president of the Arizona Women Food and Wine organization for a period of time. She enjoyed playing Bunco with her many friends and was a pioneer for the family being the first to move out west. The family followed soon thereafter one by one until almost everyone was here. Kathy had a background in teaching and spent the last two years as an online mentor for college students who are pursing their teaching certifications.
