Katherne Marie Cummings, age 87, was called home by her Savior September 11, 2019. She was born April 26, 1932 to Ralph D. and Ella F. (Dixie) Bryan at home in Hutton Valley, Missouri. She was married to Chester (Chet) C. Cummings April 10, 1951 at Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church in Hutton Valley.
In 1953, they moved to Chet's hometown of Fredonia, Kansas where she worked as a nurse aide and did private duty nursing. In 1964, they returned to Willow Springs. Although her first priority was always her family, she also worked at Rawlings, Conaway-Winters, Inc., and as a med-tech at Willow Care Nursing Home. Katherne and Chet were always very involved in their churches, singing in choirs and quartets, and teaching the youth. Their home was always open to entertaining young people. Lost Camp Baptist Church in Pomona was the main church they attended; however, they also served at the First Baptist Church of Willow Springs, and most recently, Katherne was a member of Trinity Baptist Church also of Willow Springs. Katherne was always dedicated to her family. Her family and friends treasure all the quilts, embroidered pillowcases, clothes, formals, and wedding dresses she made. She was well known for her homemade bread and sweet rolls which were legendary.
She was preceded in death by her husband, her parents, two sisters and brothers-in-law, Mary V. (and Russell) West, Viola M. (and Rev. John H.) Colbert, and one great grandson, Enoch Hendricks.
