Michele,
Although she adopted the name Kate, since she came to the US late in life, she never learned English.  She lived with her daughter's family and spoke only Yiddish.  Best I can tell, she used Kate only for dealings with government entities.  Her gravestone gives her name in Hebrew as "Kuna [kaf/vov/nun/ayin] bat..."  Finally, though I am not sure why it is relevant, she paid the US consulate $1 for "document processing."
