Kathy was the best witch that never was. If you had any questions about plants, she had the answer. Cooking? You know you’d never have a bad meal if it came from her. Old southern food was her specialty and friends still pass around her pimento cheese recipe as if it was gold. She was a wealth of information from rock music to carnival glass and her passions ran deep, especially for Halloween and decorating for all seasons and holidays. She loved to help and rescue animals and all the cats, dogs, and wildlife that have passed through her presence are enterally grateful for her caring spirit.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Friends of Campbell County Animal Control.

According to Kathy’s wishes, no services will be held.

Tharp Funeral Home & Crematory, Lynchburg, is assisting the family, (434) 237-9424.
