    Dear family,

    I was so sorry to learn about Kathleen’s death too late to attend the visitation or services. She and Mom were always close. I remember Mom saying that Kathleen graduated from 8th grade at Thorney a year ahead of Mom, but she waited until Mom graduated to start High School so that they could start together. That is why there were 2 McElhaney girls in the 1941 graduating class at Huntsville.

    She lived a faithful life and has gone on to be with the Lord.
