Entombment will follow at Tyler Mountain Memory Gardens. Kathy wore many hats, but the ones she was most proud of were wife, mother, grandmother and lover of cats. Kathy left a legacy of selflessness because throughout her whole life she always thought of the welfare of others first. Whatever Kathy was involved in, she was a positive influence on the children in her care, especially in church and as the Director of a daycare center. Her home would often bust at the seems with a gathering of her sons’ friends as well as other neighborhood kids. Many of which would even refer to her as “Mom.” Kathy exhibited kindness, caring, giving, sacrifice, and a profound love for Jesus. When she departed to be with the Lord she left a vacuum that is impossible to fill.
