Kathryn "Katie" Childers
May 9, 1986 - April 24, 2014
Resident of San Jose
Born May 9, 1986 in Mesa Arizona, Katie passed away unexpectedly in her sleep on April 23, 2014. She is survived by her father, Hardy and stepmother Cynthia of San Martin, her brother Paul of Australia, uncles and aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews from around the country. Katie was pre-deceased by her mother Carryl in May 2008.
Katie was full of life. She enjoyed sharing her love of music, movies, television shows and electronic games with friends and family, and was always happy when surrounded by animals. Having a unique sense of humor, she brought joy to those around her. Some of Katie's fondest memories were the years she spent playing her saxophone with and enjoying the company of her bandmates on the Santa Teresa High School and San Jose State Spartan Marching Bands.
A memorial will be held by the Great Mausoleum at Oak Hill Cemetery at 11am on May 23, 2014. Interment will follow with the immediate family.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations to the Wildlife Education and Rehabilitation Center in Morgan Hill, California, where Katie spent many volunteer hours. Donations can be mailed to WERC, PO Box 1105, Morgan Hill, CA 95038 or through PayPal via the WERC website www.werc-ca.org.
