Mortgage Master will be closed on Thursday


Last Friday, my sister-in-law Kathy Porter Walker, passed away.  Kathy’s passing was not unexpected to family and close friends.  However, we all have heavy hearts and miss her tremendously.   

Kathy will be reunited in heaven with her eldest daughter.  She is survived by her husband, four children, both of her parents, five siblings and eight grandchildren.   Kathy brought a lot of love and life to this world.   I am grateful to have known her.

Kathy was also a co-worker, employed at Mortgage Master which is a Porter family business.   Mortgage Master will be closed Thursday morning with a few employees working in the afternoon.   We will re-open with a full staff on Friday, July 13, 2007.

Services for Kathy will be on Thursday, July 12, 2007 at 10:00 a.m. at St. Philomena Catholic Church in Des Moines.   


  1. Martha, So sorry to hear of your loss. My Father passed away last Friday also. It was a sad day for many.
    Expected or not, we will miss them always…

  2. Kristal, I’m so sorry about your Dad! Friday wasn’t a good day for either of our families.

    All my best to you and yours.

    I had mixed feelings putting this on the blog…these days, if a mortgage company is closed and it’s not a holiday, it could cause panic.

  3. Rhonda, my thoughts are with you and your family.

  4. My prayers are with the Porter family tomorrow.

  5. Thanks Brian and Greg. Kathy had a wonderful service. Afterwards, the family gathered at “the folks” and we all remembered Kathy. The Porters are a very close family and I adore them all.
