I knew and loved Mrs. Katherine, I met her through her late husband Mike while she lived in Prattsville. She was a very lovely and sweet person. I loved and respected her very much. I pray that God will be with you all through this time.
I just loved her. We hit it off the minute she moved to batesville.â¤ï¸
I just love the Titsworth Family. I fondly remember one Titsworth Reunion...what a celebration with, of course, everyone singing & playing instruments. Kathy has always been such a classy lady & a joy to have known since childhood. To her family I send my sincerest condolences. God grant you peace.
Our sincere condolences. Dan is Mikeâ€™s cousin. We loved going to the farm to visit Mike and Kathy. She would always cook up peas, fried okra, cornbread, and fresh rip tomatoes from her garden. She and Mike will be greatly missed. Dan and Barbie
