She is also survived by her sister-in-law, Nancy Lawson and husband Rollie, niece, Leah Lawson, nephews, David and Stephen Lawson and their children, and by her beloved dog, Maggie.

She was a devoted member of the community. She was active in the Booster Club, 4-H, FFA & PTA and a life, long member of Beta Sigma Phi.

Kathy was very close to her sisters Kay & Kim. Being that Kay and Kathy were only born a year apart, they would often fight over clothes but loved each other’s company. Although Kim was thirteen years younger, she went everywhere with Kathy. They were the best of friends.

Kathy married L.J., the love of her life, on June 27th, 1969. She helped L.J. run R&T Greasing and Turner Trucking all while she owned and managed her own clothing boutique, B.B.’s Boutique, with her mother Bobbie.

Kathy & L.J. loved going to their house in Ruidoso, New Mexico to relax and spend time at the horse races. Kathy would also rope L.J. and the kids into going all out on decorating the house for every holiday, but Christmas was the holiday she loved the most. Kathy and L.J. had a motorhome they loved to travel around in. Her favorite thing about the motorhome was that it had a bathtub that she could relax and soak in while L.J. drove them to the next destination.

Kathy was a devoted wife and mother, always putting the needs of her family before her own. Every day after school, Kathy would take LaNae and her friends to Stars for a snack.

Kathy was always on the go with Lance. He traveled a lot for work, and she loved going with him. She would sometimes answer Lance’s phone and strike up a conversation with a complete stranger, who had called to talk to Lance about some workrelated issue, until Lance could come to the phone.

Kathy was a dedicated mother and even more dedicated grandmother to her beloved granddaughter, Turner. When Turner would stay the summer with her, she would sleep on the bottom bunk bed, and they would stay up late watching game shows and talking.

Kathy’s depth of love continued to her extended family with her niece, Jori Speer, nephew, Jentry Porter and their children, Bromley and Anniston Speer & Navy Porter. She always loved being around them all and spoiling them until their parents stepped in.

The stories and memories are abundant and although life had its ups and downs along the way, Kathy was always a faithful servant to all of those around her. She was steadfast in her love, no matter the circumstances. Her greatest joy was being a grandmother to Turner, and she was so very proud of her. We all know that she is finally home with Jesus, her Lord and Savior and with her momma, daddy and sister. What a joyous reunion it must have been. We will all miss her beyond words but have vowed to stand together as family and love one another, no matter the circumstances, just as she taught us how to do.
