She volunteered weekly, calling Bingo at Sunset Home & always made food for families in their hour of need.
Kathy loved making jelly & quilting, (much of which was donated to raffle, or made for others.)

    I am so sorry for the loss of one of my best Cameron friends. My heart goes out to Mike, Ronda, Ronnie and family. She always found time to see me when I came back for visits. We loved sharing stories of our children, grandchildren and great granddaughters. She dearly loved her family, friends and church. She is a true friend that I will dearly miss!

    I knew Kathy when I taught her children at Clarksdale Elementary School in the early 1980s. She was always so friendly and she was proud of her children. She also had a great sense of humor about her kids, and especially Ronnie – who also had a great sense of humor! In all ways, she was a “pillar of the community.” Her sudden departure from her friends and family is no doubt a terrible loss, but she would not have wanted to depend on others with a lingering illness. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you as you share memories and stories.

    This was a woman who showed me so many things. Crocheting tips while we worked our 12 hour shifts at the Clarksdale polls on Election Day, her recipes for her jams. But most of all, she taught me how important it was to serve your community unconditionally. Nobody did it better! As I sit here and read her Christmas card, I see her note that said “let’s go to lunch soon”! I know she meant it! She will be missed!
