As an Illinois "Yankee", I wasn't aware of Kathryn Tucker Windham during her lifetime. Now, the audio recordings of her wonderful stories bring me great joy. I want very much to eat cornbread (with no sugar in it) with her when I get to heaven. Thanks Kathryn for helping me through some very difficult times.

We have lost the most gentle speaking ghost story teller I had the pleasure to know she was one of a kind

Kathryn Tucker Windham added a taste of "pep in my step" upon our first meeting. My life as been a bit spicier ever since. So glad God let our paths cross.

I never met Mrs. Windham, but one of her nieces introduced me to her work about five years ago. I loved it, I've only been able to get one by way of our book store. But my friend Terry Borneman has several that her mother left her, and she loans them to me. We had talked of making a trip to meet her, but Terry's husband got cancer so we never did. That will alway's be my great loss. From what I've been told, Mrs Windham had to have been a person with a wonderful heart. I'm sorry for your loss and for what the world hasalso lost.

I met Ms. Kathryn many years ago at the Young Alabma Banker's Convention at Gulf Shores, Alabama (in the 70's)where she distributed copies of her story about the Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham. I think a bank actually printed those for distribution.
I still have my autographed copy. From that meeting, I attended every story telling in Alabama where Kathryn was speaking and teacher conferences, and started attending the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesboro about ten years ago where she was not only the Matriarch of Storytelling, but the beloved storyteller that everyone wanted to hear over and over. I went to the Methodist Church in Huntsville, AL to hear Katherine and Donald Davis speak only to find out about her fall and illnesses. I will never forget her stories and the wonderful way she had in telling them. The storytelling festival will go on, but will never be the same. I also called to get the Donald David "Remembering Katherine" in the Storytelling Center to find out it was sold out after only six hours. Not surprised. Thanks for the memories. I reread her books often and treasure the wonderful inscriptions she took time to personalize, but my favorite treasure is a post card she mailed me on one of the "Jeffrie cards" to thank me for a picture I gave her last year at Jonesboro. You are a blessed family to have such a special Mom loved by millions. I'm so sorry for your loss, but heaven is certainly rejoicing. Susan

Ms. Tucker and I had a mutual friend but I did not know her personally. And another fan in here in NE Alabama worshipped the ground she walked on.
I heard her at City Stages in Bham in the late 90's. She was telling a story about a fellow who was known for his" shiftlessness."

My Mother was a big fan of Celestine Sibley. I regret she did not know of or get to read Ms. Windham. They woulda had an instant bond.

I saw your mother every year I went to the Storytelling festival. She also was a highlight. I just found out about her death today Sept 6. I was saddened to know that I will no longer be able to see her. I can hear her though, as I have several tapes and cd's also her DVD which I love.She was a wonderful, humerous woman. I will miss her on this earth. My 19 yr old daughter Katelyn loved her also. Sincerely LORRAINE mARKIEWICZ GROTTOES VA.
