On the April 5, following a funeral service at the W.A. Brown Mortuary in Los Angeles, she was buried in the Evergreen Cemetery. Her grave is located in Section E, Lot Resub 120. In August 2016 a headstone was placed on her grave by Jessica Keaton who runs a blog dedicated to silent film stars.


Eventually, Grant's condition worsened, and she required complete care, something her mother could no longer provide. She was admitted to the Patton State Hospital in San Bernardino County, where she lived for the rest of her life. She died, as Katherine Kerr, April 2, 1937, age 32. Referencing her death certificate, the principal cause of death was pulmonary tuberculosis, with a contributing cause given as dementia praecox psychosis.


Grant was mentioned in the January 1929 issue of Photoplay magazine. The article, "Diet - The Menace of Hollywood" by Katherine Albert, stated "The Miss Los Angeles of a few years ago was Kathryn [sic] Grant. A film career was assured when she was given a long term contract with the Hal Roach Studio. Pretty, talented---but overweight. She must lose. The pounds HAD to come off. She went on a diet so strenuous she collapsed and was rushed to a sanitarium. Today you do not see her on the screen. Hollywood has forgotten her. She has dropped out completely from the film world."


In May 1926, it was discovered Grant was in a sanatorium, under the assumed name of Ruth Woods to avoid publicity, in the care of a doctor who attributed her condition directly to the accident. Dr. Victor Parkin, a psychiatrist, said she suffered shock from the accident, and after several months, the shock launched her into a nervous and physical breakdown. He decreed that a prolonged period of "absolute quiet and rest were imperative or the girl's life was in danger." It was Hal Roach's suggestion she be taken to a sanatorium "where she could have complete rest...and not be accessible to even close friends, who, well meaning enough, might hurt her chances for recovery." The Roach Studios paid for all the expenses.


In December 1925, Grant was the victim of a hit-and-run accident. Because "she was found to be suffering much more severely than her slight bruises would seem to warrant" she was treated in Hollywood Hospital for a while before going to a friend's home for an extended rest. During the interval of rest, the studio released her from her contract.


Soon after turning 18 in 1922, encouraged by her mother, Grant entered and won the "Miss Los Angeles Beauty Contest". She was offered a contract by Hal Roach, and began her movie career, appearing in small roles in several Our Gang comedies.

Upon her return to Los Angeles, she went to the photography studio and appealed to the two photographers to stop the sale of the photos, but they showed her a release form she had signed, "consenting to the publication and sale of photos taken July 9, 1922." At the time she signed it, she assumed the paper was a receipt for the payment she was paid for posing.


John Grant was a carpenter, and tried his hand at some other trades. His ever-changing employment caused instability in his family's life. He and Anita divorced in 1919, and he moved to San Francisco with 18-year-old son Chester. Grant continued living in Los Angeles with her mother (who remarried in 1920 to Frederick W. Kerr, a construction worker). John died September 14, 1921, age 43. His occupation at the time of his death was automobile salesman.
