Kathleen Boyle Wofford BELMONT - Mrs. Kathleen "Kathy" Boyle Wofford, 67, passed away peacefully in her sleep Thursday, June 12, 2014, at her home. She was born in Washington, D.C. to the late Joe and Dorothy Brown Boyle. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by four infant children and her beagle Katie Boo. In high school she received the superlative for "Most Enthusiastic" and they hit that one on the head. To say she was a people person was an understatement and her time spent with family and friends were her favorite passion. Whether it be coming to the aid of a friend in need, two-hour-long conversations on the phone, Bridge Clubs (cards optional), Book Clubs (she actually read the books, albeit, the night before), or various boards and charities, her passion, empathy, generosity and love of people shone through. Her smile, voice, laugh, and unique sense of humor will be deeply missed. Survivors include her son, David Wofford of Gastonia; sisters, Sharon Boyle of Reston, VA, Mary Phifer and husband Jimmy of Leesburg, VA, Patty Boyle of Blacksburg, VA; brother, Mike Boyle and wife Gaye of Asheboro, NC; former husband, Bruce "Bud" Wofford of Charlotte, NC; numerous nieces, nephews and godchildren; and her grand-dogs, Daisy and Duke. Services and Celebration of Life (Champagne and Chocolate Party) will be forthcoming in the weeks to follow. In lieu of flowers or memorials Kathy would ask that you treat an old friend to dinner and be sure to start with dessert first. In case you need a recommendation, chocolate mousse cake with chocolate on top would be a good start. Condolence messages may be sent to the family online at www.McLeanFuneral.com. McLean Funeral Directors of Gastonia is serving the family of Mrs. Wofford.
