Kathy was the matriarch of her family and the glue that held everyone together. She cherished every moment that she was surrounded by her loving family and devoted her life to her children and her grandchildren in order to give them the best life possible. Kathy enjoyed taking walks on the bike trail, shopping and having lunch at The Wheel with her Golden Girls GeJuan Irby and Shirley Davis. She was an avid fan of country music and dancing. Kathy had a smile that could light up a room. While we are all saying Goodbye Darlin', we can only hope that Conway Twitty was there to take your hand at the Pearly Gates and welcome you with a 'Hello Darlin'.
