Kathryn was always a friendly and gentle natured person. I count myself as lucky to have had her as a neighbor for all the years that I've lived in Glen Wilton. No one could ask for better.

To the entire Thurston Family:
Kathryn was one of the sweetest ladies I have ever known. She was always so kind and try to be uplift when I know at times she
didn't feel very well. She fought a good fight and now she is in the loving arms of her Lord & Savior. I can only imagine how much
you all are going to miss her. She was so strong in her faith and a faithful servant to her church that I know she loved dearly.
You are in my thoughts and prayers at this very difficult time.

Yours in Christ,
Bonnie Britt
