Kathryn (Kate) R. Cavallo of Pendleton, Oregon was born January 25, 1940 in Caldwell, Idaho to parents Elihu and Rae (Flemming) Bennett. She died on June 2, 2019 in a local care facility. Shortly after her birth her family moved to Echo, Oregon. Kate completed grade school in Echo. Her family relocated to Hermiston, OR where Kate attended middle school and graduated from Hermiston High School in 1957. After graduating, she worked for Pendleton Grain Growers in Hermiston. In the Summer of 1957 a friend of Kates introduced to her future husband Henry (Hank) T. Cavallo at a Safeway Store Employee Picnic. Hank and Kate were united in marriage on September 13, 1958 in Hermiston, OR. From this union 4 children were born; Tony, twins Marla and Mike and Kathi. Due to Hanks employment with Safeway they spent most of their married years moving their family about the State of Oregon. With the children grown and on their own and Hank retiring, they relocated back to Pendleton in October , 1987 where Kate got to unpack for the final time. Kate was a very talented seamstress and cook. She also enjoyed crafting and doing needlework. One of her favorite things to do was Upholstery work. Whether it was a piece of furniture or a car interior, the bigger the challenge the more fun she had. Kate always said her greatest achievement was being a loving wife, mother, grandmother and homemaker. She always put her family first.
