Katie Cooney Nesbitt Obituary
Katie Cooney Nesbitt 1984-2017
of Nashville, Tenn. was met with peace on Sept. 29, 2017 after a tough fought battle with cancer. In her 33 short years of life, she touched countless hearts. She leaves behind her daughter, Isabella, Mom and Step-Dad, Andrea and David Jonethis; Dad and Step-Mom, Tom and Shelly Nesbitt; siblings, Korey (Melissa), Kyle and Karlee Nesbitt; nieces and nephew, Tyla, Koriea, and Weldon; grandparents, Michael (Pops) Nesbitt, Ellen Jones, and Lois Jones; aunts, uncles and numerous loved ones.
Born on July 4, 1984 in Akron, Ohio, Katie attended Revere High School and graduated from Franklin Centennial High School in Tennessee in 2001. As a member of the cross-country and swim team, Katie majored in art at Lambuth University. Katie was an incredibly quirky individual with a known love of art, music, sports and people. With her initial diagnosis of breast cancer in 2015, Katie tenaciously fought the biggest of fights. As testimony to her unwavering will, she continued her career in the medical administration field where she worked throughout her treatments with the support of family, friends and co-workers. During a brief period of remission, she greatly involved herself in a program called ABC where she could help other women who were going through similar situations. In July of 2017, Katie was reintroduced to an old, unwelcomed aggressor. She remained a brave, bold, strong-spirited woman who made everyone around her laugh, even throughout her final months.
A graveside service will be held at Sunset Hills Cemetery in Chautauqua County on Monday, Oct. 9th at 11:00. In lieu of flowers, Katie asked that donations would instead be made to the ABC (After Breast Cancer) Program of Maryland Farms YMCA.
