SHE HAD HER OWN COMPANY

The late mother was the owner of Weston Jane, a clothing company that revolves around the idea of "moms supporting moms," as well as "women supporting women."

Katherine took great pride in the company that she built over the years, which is known for selling products that are either hand-crafted or printed by mothers.
