Kathleen Counts

Kathleen peacefully slipped away from this world Sunday evening, March 16, 2014 at the age of 82. Her family is comforted to know that she is now in the presence of the Lord. She loved the Lord and worshipped with her church family at Little Ruth Church for many years.

Kathleen loved people almost as much as she loved God. She spent much of her life caring for family and friends. She maintained an open door policy and fed anyone her husband or children brought home. She always made room for anyone who needed a place to stay. In her younger years she was hard working and fun loving. She was known as one of the best cooks in the area and never lacked food because she gardened and canned food for her family and friends. She was an avid fisherman, croquet and horse shoe player and was all too pleased to challenge friends to any board game.

Kathleen was born to Lynn and Vadie Younce in March 1931 and was raised in Bartlick, Virginia. She met the love of her life, Adron in Tivas, Virginia and married him in June of 1948. They spent the next 65 years caring for and watching over each other.

Kathleen was preceded in death by her two parents and two of her siblings, Leon and Bernard. She will be remembered and missed by her Husband, Adron, her son Gary (Vickie) Counts, daughter, Kathy (Bob) Beveridge; brothers: R.C. Younce, Clifton (Margaret) Younce, Larry (Sue) Younce; sisters: Betty (Virgil) Sykes and Sheila Branum; 5 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. The other family and friends that will miss Kathleen are too numerous to name.

Friends may call on Tuesday, March 18, 2014 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 pm at the Gompf Funeral Home in Cardington. The funeral service will be held on Wednesday, March 19, 2014 at the Little Ruth Baptist Church, 3521 County Road 217, Marengo at 11:00 AM.
