Kathryn M. Gilman Obituary
Kathryn M. Gilman

Kathryn M. Gilman went to be with the Lord March 16, 2014.

She was born April 26, 1923 in Westover, Pa. to the late Charles and Margaret (Gaines) McCulley. She moved to the Akron area in the 1940s and found work at Firestone, building airplanes as part of the war effort. She loved to bowl and tend to her flower garden, especially her rose bushes. She was also a member of the Moose Association for many years.

Preceded in death by her husband, Norman; and son, Charlie; Kathryn is survived by her daughters, Norma Bower and Kitty Perkins; grandchildren, Norman (Becky) Walker, Billy (Teri) Walker, Laurie Walker, Margaret (Jeff) Hochstettler, Melvin (Carol) Garretson Jr., Kimberly Lott, and Leah Barber; and many great- and great-great-grandchildren.

Per Kathryn's wishes, no formal services will be held. A small private family gathering will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent to Hospice of Summa (444 N Main Street, P.O. Box 2090, Akron, OH 44398) or St. Jude's Children's Hospital (501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105).
