Katie was educated in Nottoway County and graduated from Luther H. Foster High School in 1960. She was baptized at a young age and joined New Prospect Baptist Church, where she sang in the choir.
Katie was united in Holy Matrimony in 1961 to Kenneth Jones, and from this union two children were born, Andrea and Kenneth. She had a stepson, Demetrius Jones.
Katie was a loving and devoted mother. For a while she lived in New York and Baltimore, later she returned to Virginia. For a while Katie was employed at the United Post Office in Richmond, VA. She also worked at Fort Lee and Fort Pickett, where she put in over thirty years between the two. She loved her work, loved getting her nails done, traveling and visiting friends and family.
