Kathy Bernice Draper
June 25, 1949 – June 3, 2018
Kathy Bernice Draper was born Saturday, June 25, 1949 in Fresno, California, the second of three daughters to Elmer and Bernice Hart. She passed away on Sunday, June 3 of this year at the age of 68.
She is survived by her husband Theodore(Ted) Draper; her children Robin and Brad; grandchildren Dustin Harman and William Martin and her great-grandchildren Alyssa, Sarah, Kylee and Emily Martin and her sisters, Brenda Allen and Cindy Hullender.
Kathy loved photography. She took many pictures of her family, and most recently the Bass Lake RV Park community that she enjoyed so much. Many were published on various Facebook pages.
Over the years, Ted's work had afforded them the opportunity to visit many scenic places, and they also did a lot of traveling on their vacations. She took lots of pictures everywhere that they went. It was one of her passions, a creative way of expressing herself that she shared with her friends and family.
Always a caring person, Kathy was always supportive of family and friends and had a lifelong habit of taking in stray animals. Animals always seem to know that she would take care of them and flock to her when they were sick or injured.
Because of her strong belief in the importance of education and community service, Kathy gave many years as a regular volunteer at Webster Elementary School, Liberty High School and Madera Ranchos Library.
