Live More at Cedar Community | Meet Kit Minnihan | By Gladys Sachse

Washington County, WI – Kit (Katharine) Minnihan was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She had one younger sister, Molly. The family moved often as her father worked for the Milwaukee Railroad—living in Kansas City, Missouri; Fairmont, Minnesota; Allentown, Pennsylvania; and Glenview, Illinois, where her family finally settled when Kit was in her early teens.

Her grandfather also worked for the railroad as a station master. Kit recalls a clipped newspaper article announcing her grandfather’s 50th year with the railroad—
it was printed in 1936, the year Kit was born.

Her family traveled a lot—a privilege of being a railroad family. Some memorable trips were to Williamsburg, Virginia, and Yellowstone Park. Kit especially enjoyed their annual summer visits to her grandparents in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and Fairmont, Minnesota.
