Katherine Rene Huskey, age 72, beloved wife, mother, sister and grandmother, passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Thursday, July 22, 2021. Kathy was an amazing, strong willed woman that helped raise her younger brother, Tony Honeycutt, raised two beautiful daughters, and spoiled 3 wonderful grandchildren. She was saved and baptized in the Baptist Faith at a young age. She had a wicked sense of humor, zest for life and fierce loyalty to those lucky enough to be loved by her. She was an accomplished beautician, artist, seamstress, and avid crafter. Preceded in death by: mother, Loveta (Lee) Holdredge; step-father, Mike Holdredge; father, Clark Hoffman; mother-in-law, Zella Mae Huskey; father-in-law, James A. Huskey. She leaves behind her soul mate, best friend and husband of nearly 52 years, John R.

Kathy was a shining light that instilled in her daughters and grandbabies the love of adventure, importance of education, and fierce devotion of family and friends. She inspired her granddaughter’s love of music and art. She loved old horror movies, reading, was an avid science fiction fan. That interest was passed down to her grandbabies. She will always live on in the hearts and minds of all who were blessed enough to have known her. Private graveside service will be held.
