Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Kathy was born on November 21, 1948 and went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on November 9, 2018. We know without a doubt that she is now face to face with Him and Mom is showing her around. As the song says, we can only imagine. Kathy loved the Lord with all her heart, accepting him as her personal Savior at a young age. About 15 years ago, while going through a difficult time in her life, she recommitted her life to Him and since then her faith has not wavered.
Kathy loved the church, her family, friends and church family. Until she could no longer attend, you would see her every Sunday. She also devoted time to helping out at every event that she could, especially the Medical and Dental Fair. Kathy loved sending cards (sometimes homemade) with words of encouragement to everyone she knew. As soon as her monthly check was in the bank, she had to be sure to purchase stamps she might need for that month. Even though she always kept an abundance of cards on hand, sometimes she would be sure to purchase special cards.
Kathy loved helping her friend, Maude, with her orphanage, Hope for the Future of the Children of Haiti. She enjoyed hitting thrift stores with her friend, Michelle. She never bought anything for herself. She only bought for those in need. Kathy loved making hats for cancer patients and the babies in NICU. Kathy loved spending time on Facebook with her friends, playing games on the computer and helping anyone who was experiencing a computer glitch.
Of all the things she loved, her favorite thing on this earth was cats. Maybe that is why there are six cats living at her sister’s house with a never ending supply of feral cats in the backyard. She even made a living space to protect them from the elements and gave them a safe place to eat and sleep with the help of her sisters.
As we all grieve Kathy’s passing, I would like to say, “The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow”. Oh my goodness, how Kathy hated that song. “Sorry Sis, I couldn’t resist”. Kathy was a special lady, always putting others before herself. We love you so much and “You will be truly missed until we see you again”.
