Kathy was the loving and devoted mother of Aaron Kelley (Jill), Robin Sniffen (Josh), Shannon Tuttle (Kris), and Jordan Kelley. Adored Nanny of Jenna and Ellie as well as 11 foster grandchildren. Loving daughter of the late Ira and Betsy Fowler. Dear sister of George Fowler.

Kathy was way too talented and too young to leave this world. I have many fond memories of Kathy while she was in Waco and affiliated with the Homespun Quilters Guild. My condolences to the family.

Kathy was a champion in every way....an advocate for others....a creative giver....one of my heroes. The world is not quite as bright without her.....though I confess, I see her light of love in Shannon and the care she gave her mother. Gratefully...

Kathy man you were a powerhouse of a woman. You walked into my life after my divorce and was just the ray of sunshine I needed. We were an unstoppable team on 94B. Sitting in your office as your provided wisdom, and support will always be missed. I love you and will miss you more then words can express
