"She was the love of my life. We spent 57 beautiful, wonderful, loving years together, which I will treasure forever," her husband of 57 years, David Christian, said in a statement. "I've been with Katherine since I was 19 years old. The night she died, I saw that the moon was exactly half-full, just as I am now... half of what I've been my entire adult life."
