Our thoughts and prayers go out to Kathy's family. We have known Kathy for many years. Our three children and a grandchild had Kathy for a teacher. We have many memories of her as a teacher. A "good and faithful servant".

Kathy, I am so sad to hear of your passing. You were always such a bright light on Fridays, and I will miss your smile! We had so many conversations about life in general, and I always smiled a little brighter after our chats! I think of your sister, Candy, and your precious pup that you spoke so often about, and included in your posts in my private group. I know you will be missed, but I'm happy you are at peace, and with your Savior. I will miss you, Miss Kathy. xo~ Lisa Parrett
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

It was my great privilege to serve as Kathleen's physician for many years (until 2017), and she was a truly tenderhearted, kind, intelligent woman in every and any encounter we had through the years. I know she was greatly used and appreciated in years of humble service and is undoubtedly rejoicing in her new home, even as others here mourn her passing. God continually bless you and yours, Miss Kathy.

I never got a chance to thank Kathy again for her excellent teaching skills. It was like magic for my children. I will miss her smile and laughter; she was a great example of a woman who loved the Lord. Heaven is her home and she has attained her crown of life. God bless.
