Kathleen was a Christian by Faith and a member of the Mt. Nebo United Methodist Church. She was a homemaker for over 75 years. Kathleen loved collecting cardinals, angels, salt and pepper shakers, and crafting. All of the decorations on her Christmas tree were homemade. She also made beautiful cakes. One of her family’s favorites was the “complicated” butterfly shaped cake. Kathleen was the oldest and longest member of the Upshur County CEOS club and the Mt. Nebo United Methodist Women’s club.
