She was born in Altha, Florida and has lived in this area the majority of her life. She traveled with her husband in the early years of their marriage and eventually settled in Marianna where she continued to raise her children.
Kathleen worked as a caregiver in many different stages of her life. She began with her younger brother and sister, acting a second mother. Later, after her children were born, she babysat others so she would be able to stay home. Finally, to the elderly, where she strived to ensure they were taken care of, wanted for nothing, but most importantly, knew that someone loved them. She loved taking care of others; that was what brought her the greatest joy. Whether young or old, no task was too big or too small for her to tackle.
She was a firm believer in Christ and attended church faithfully. Traditional hymns and a small country church were all she needed. She read her Bible daily and prayed ceaselessly. Whatever the need or situation, she knew the Lord would provide.
