It is with deep sorrow we announce the death of Kathryn Hobbs (Katie), who was called home on May 21st, 2024. Katie was born February 4th, 1991, in Hinsdale, IL to Joanna McKenna and Michael McKenna. Katie was a beautiful pure soul who loved and was loved by anyone she met. She lived her dream life with her husband and lifelong love Travis Hobbs - Lea County Sheriff's Office with whom she raised three sweet children Ryder (6), Brooklyn (3), and Grayson (17mo). She was the most selfless person and cared only for others, she lived that everyday as an Emergency Room Nurse at Nor-Lea Hospital. Those that knew Katie will remember her only as the most wonderful and kind person they ever had the joy of loving.

Kathryn is survived by her parents Michael and Joanna McKenna, siblings Drew & Wife Chrissi, Brandon, Michael, Lindsey, and grandmother Wendy Hankey. A multitude of family and friends. She is preceded by her grandparents Bernard and Anne McKenna.

This commemorative bottle of whiskey has been created by Liberty Call Distilling in San Diego California. The company is marine owned and a friend to all first responders. The bottle boasts superior quality work compared to other engravings because it is sandblasted, not just etched.

The whiskey is first aged in new 53 gallon medium charred American oak barrels for 2 years then rested in-barrel with Chilean Amburana Oak staves.  They’ve created a uniquely sweet, yet spicy bourbon whiskey. With hints of gingerbread and fresh vanilla on the nose, there is a pronounced sweetness on the palate while showing touches of oak, spice cake, nutmeg, and light brown sugar. 

The bottles can be shipped across the United States except for the restricted states of Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Utah, and Virginia.
