She met the love of her life, Charles Townes, in a local grocery store and the two were married on December 5, 1981 at Timpson Missionary Baptist Church. They spent over 35 years together before his passing in 2017. Although Kathi had no children of her own, she had many that came through Timpson ISD through the years she spent teaching Kindergarten and Pre-k. She retired from Timpson ISD after more than 20 years of service. She was a very kind, compassionate, tender hearted individual. Those that were blessed to meet her will surely miss her.
