|First Appearance:||Halloween: White Ghost|
Katherine Hastings was born in Pontiac, Illinois. Later in her life, she met and married a man named Richard Hastings. On May 22, 1945, the couple welcomed a child they would name Christopher. As Christopher grew up, Richard would spend more time working and drinking than spend time with his family so it was often just Katherine and Christopher at the home. In the summer of 1958, the family moved to the town of Haddonfield, Illinois because Richard had a new job which was to wire houses.
