Katie Steinmeyer, who survives her husband Ralph Steinmeyer, was employed by Kilps Realty for many years and received the Milwaukee Area Realtor of the Year award in 1976 at the age of 66. Most working women in that era had already retired at that age, or were stay at home women not venturing out into the work force. But Katie had broken through many barriers in her life and ventured out to join the male workforce of the age and became a trusted and respected Realtor. She is truly a great role model for today's youth, just venturing out into the business world.
