Kathy Jane Pickles was born on Sept 8, 1949 and joined her Heavenly Father, her brother Jack, sister Joan and the rest of her Heavenly Family at the young age of 68 on November 22, 2017. She is survived by her adoring, loving husband Derrick and their children Denine, Susie, Charity, Scott, Teddy and Darren and their spouses. Also survived by her sister Joyce, nieces, nephew and all her beautiful loving grand babies. She fought her cancer long and hard with a smile and a happy attitude no matter the pain and hardships. Kathy was a strong, beautiful, hardworking, creative, fun and outgoing woman. She ALWAYS had a smile on her face and adored her family. In the summer you could always find her in the pool with the grandbabies no matter their age. She always showed us her patience and had ways to solve everything to make them better. She was selfless, generous and would give her shirt off her back for anyone. Her patience and love for others made her our hero! She often mentioned that her family is her life and she loved having family around. Her loving husband loved her so much and often says she was the best thing that happened to him. He was dedicated to her from the moment he laid eyes on her. She was loved by so many people because she was so uplifting and fun to be around. She had a beautiful life that often she said that she was very blessed. We love you mom and are so thankful for such an amazing example of true Christ like attributes for us to follow.
