R.I.P. Kathy Coe Royce
Just found her on find a grave. Heck of a smart young lady. I knew her from when she was one of the first NRA/ILA lobbyists (there were five: Bill Pickins, head, Kathy, Susan Reece, Randy Bowman and Danny Smith). She left that when she married a British MP. I last saw her at a party, though either my dates or those on her obit were confused, since I remember my son Mark (born in 1985) was an infant at the time.
She was very, very, good at politics and PR, and a little goofy in everything else. One day she came into work rather shaken up. She'd locked her keys in her house, tried to climb in an upstairs window, slipped and rolled down the roof and went into the bushes below. Another time she flew to New York City, rented a car, drove to her appointment, took a taxi back to the airport and flew back to DC. A while later the car rental place called NRA to ask where their car was. (In the meantime, it was stolen).
