Catherine Louise (Chandler) Lines Obituary

Catherine Louise (Chandler) Lines passed away at Rosewood Health Center on August 8, 2018.

Funeral services will be 11 a.m. Monday, Aug. 13, with visitation beginning at 10 a.m., at Newcomer's Noland Road Chapel, 509 S. Noland Road, Independence, MO 64050; 816-252-8900.

Catherine was born at home December 2, 1924, to Joseph Penn and Catherine Rose (Bauer) Chandler in Kansas City, Kansas. She graduated from Wyandotte High School in 1942. She married Elmo Arthur Lines on June 16, 1944 and moved to Independence, Mo., in 1946. She was a member of Maywood Baptist Church for over forty years.

Always reading and studying, she was a gifted teacher as a mother and a church leader. She completed a four year Menninger Bible Course along with numerous other classes she sought out. She read the entire Bible through at least twelve times. She taught every age group in various Baptist churches in the area, even leading a Bible Class in her senior living apartment until she was 90. The Women's Missionary Union was dear to her heart. She taught us to treat every person with kindness no matter how they look or what other people think of them.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband of 55 years; and her brothers, Joseph Willis Chandler and Dr. Edward Lee Chandler.

Surviving to cherish her memory are her daughter, Donna Ryan (John P.); son, Dr. Timothy A. Lines (Ginger); grandchildren, Sarah Shackleford (Christopher), L. Kathryn Bayliff (Michael), John J. Ryan (Amy), Rosemary Brennan (Ryan), Emily Lines (Julian), Arthur Lines and Louisa Lines. She leaves great-grandchildren: Zachary, Benjamin, Kieran, Aiden, Kamala, Melia, Cooper, Jack, Anna, Theresa, Eleanor and Maryanne.
