Kathy Qualters Long Accomando, 70, Gleason, Tenn., formerly of Warrior Run, was greeted at the gates of Heaven by the Lord on Friday, Nov. 26, 2021.
Born in Yonkers, N.Y., the daughter of Patrick and Catherine Qualters, Kathy moved to Pennsylvania in 1968 after marrying her first husband, Bruce Long. Kathy and Bruce brought two children into the world, Apryll and Harold.
Kathy was a loving mother and made sure that every day she told her children how much she loved them and how beautiful they are. Kathy was a very hard worker, having worked at Rex Shoe, Gruen and Sears warehouse before retirement.
Kathy met the love of her life, George (Tony) Accomando, in 1995, and they just celebrated their 24th wedding anniversary. Kathy and Tony moved to Gleason, Tenn., 13 years ago, where together they built a beautiful home and life. Kathy was not only adored by her family but also by her many friends, neighbors, pastor and fellow church members who will all miss her dearly.
Kathy was an author of two published books, for which she was very proud of: "God's Divine Plan through Jesus Christ" and "Lord God of Hosts and God of Israel." Kathy was also a certified minister. Kathy used her passion and knowledge of the Bible to help many people find their way to God, including inmates at several correction facilities.
Kathy also hosted a weekly radio program called Friday Chat with Kathy. She loved the Lord so very much and was so excited to teach others his words and his love.
Preceding Kathy in death was her father, Patrick Qualters; brother, Robert Qualters; and granddaughter, Corinna Long.
Surviving, in addition to her best friend and husband, George "Tony" Accomando, Gleason Tenn.; are mother, Catherine Qualters, Dallas; brother, Patrick Qualters, Dunmore; daughter; Apryll Jordan and fiancé, Roland Letteer, Plains Twp.; son, Harold Long and wife, Tracie, Plains Twp.; her stepchildren, whom she loved like her own, Jeffrey Accomando, Michael Accomando, Todd Accomando and Michele Accomando; 10 grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; cousins, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and her devoted pets.
Kathy would like everyone to celebrate the life she had here on Earth, but most importantly to celebrate that she is now with God and Jesus and will forever be happy, loved and at peace. The family has been asked by many what they can do or who they can donate to in her honor, and we know that her answer would be to read her books, read the Bible, open your hearts to the Lord. She would want everyone to love one another and keep her spirit alive by brining the lord into your hearts.
Services will be at 11 a.m. Friday in First Apostolic Church, Gleason, Tenn., where she was a devoted parishioner.
