She delighted in seeing her friends, family and anyone she came in contact with, being saved and knowing the Lord. She was a good Christian woman and a prayer warrior. And more than that she was a wonderful wife, mother and mammaw, devoting her life life to her family.

She most enjoyed time spent with her granddaughter who was the light of her life. Katheryn touched many lives in Calhoun County, both through her time as a healthcare provider and as a community member. She will be very much missed.
