Kathy, was number 3 sibling out of 5; and the wittiest☺! Born April 6th, 1953 in Denver, Colorado she loved hanging out with the family, and friends while climbing trees, making snowmen! As an adult she earned an Accountant Certificate working at various businesses. Kathy loved cooking and baking especially her cherry cheesecake! She married Jim Edwards and moved to Nashville, TN and later moved to Carencro, LA. Their Son Jimmy graduated from Carencro High School. After her husband’s passing, she joined her sister Lori and husband Richard in a hobby called Seniors at Play. They bought abandoned storage units and sold at Jockey Lot Flea Market for 6 years. Then in 2018, garage sales twice a month kept her very busy and allowed her to watch people and make new friends. Sister Michele from Rapid City, SD shared they spoke everyday and Kathy talked to God everyday thanking Him for everything, He was the source of her well-being! Brother Chris shared that she was a gentle spirit that navigated life between the lines. She walked with humility, kindness and grace with respect. But when engaged, she responded with great life, humor, and always went above the line to show care! Kathy loved her son with all her heart and soul; and Jimmy returned that love a thousand-fold! Her niece Jennifer, she was her rock, her role model and special angel that always had her back! Her older sister Lori shared that Kathy was more than a sister, but a close friend, confident, and partner that enriched our many adventures! She is survived by her son, James P. Edwards (Olivia Moore); sisters, Lori A. Jeffrey-Clark (Richard) and Michele J. Herz (Eddie); brother, Christopher Jeffrey (Jacie); brother-in-law, Larry J.
