Katherine "Kathy" Maria Cannon Barnell, 61, of Rincon, peacefully went to the loving arms of her Savior on Monday, Dec. 3, 2018.
She was born in Manning, S.C. In her youth, she was known for helping her grandparents, who raised her, clean fish. This gave her the nickname, "Catfish Kathy." In later years, she was known for her big, compassionate heart. She always thought of others before herself, even until her final days. Her hobbies included cooking, singing, writing poetry and crocheting. She loved Jesus, her daughters and granddaughters, in that order, more than anything. Her faith was strong. Some of her final words were, "God has a plan."
She is preceded in death by her mother, Helen Cannon; father, Frances Cannon; and brothers, Willie and Tommy of South Carolina.
She is survived by her daughters, Amanda Hinely (Casey), of Guyton, and Pamela Smith of Rincon; granddaughters, Amberleigh Driggers, Kacey Driggers, Daisy Stone, Brianna Stone and Brooke Hinely; four brothers, three sisters, and three cats.
Visitation will held at Riggs Funeral Home on Friday, Dec. 7, 2018, from 11 a.m. until noon with services to follow in the chapel of the funeral home.
Interment will be held in the Rincon Cemetery.
