Memories Timeline


  1. I worked with Kathleen back during the 1970’s, she was always such a joy to work with, she will be remembered as always happy and helpful. My thoughts and prayers will be with her loved ones.

  2. I am sorry to hear about the loss of your dear loved one. Please accept my condolences at this painful time. Losing a loved one is distressing and as comfort is needed from family and friends, it is my hope your family will find comforting the promise at Isaiah 25:8 where we are assured that ‘death will be swallowed up forever.’ It is my hope your family will find strength to endure during the days ahead.

  3. Sincere sympathy to the family of Kathleen. Darin and I are so thankful to have met kathleen at the 90th B’day party. Aileen and family have been friends of ours for many yrs. we live in Asheboro, so will not be able to attend the funeral. Blessings to all.
