Born March 5, 1936 in Fayetteville, AR; moved to Lemay area with her parents, the late Richard and Gladys Watkins in 1940. Alumni Notre Dame High School. Kathy was last employed at Kroger in Lemay as an office manager, before retiring in 1986. Kathy was a beautiful kind, person, who gave of herself to her children and late mother. In rough times, she held down two jobs to provide food and shelter for her family. She made sure her children received the medical care they needed. She gave up her only day off work to take her mother to the doctor or shopping and doing for her children. For many years, there was no day off. So when we stop to think, she really did a lot, and asked for nothing in return except for respect, understanding and love. She was a confidant to many; the one to talk to when problems arose, always seemed to come up with an answer. She was funny, witty, compassionate, empathetic and caring. It was a special experience to have really known and to have been part of her life. Kathy has affected and touched the lives of many people, all of whom have several memories of her. Kathy is greatly loved and will be missed terribly. Services: Funeral at KUTIS SOUTH COUNTY Chapel, 5255 Lemay Ferry Rd. (at Butler Hill), Sat., Feb. 27 at 11 a.m. Interment Mount Hope Cemetery.
