On Saturday evening, March 6, 2021, Kathy Lynn Haith, bowed to the will of God Almighty and went home to live in perfect peace with her Lord and savior. Kathy was born on Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 26th,1964 in Sanford, Florida. She moved from Evanston to Glencoe, Illinois at a young age, is the oldest child of Robert C. and Jeroldine Y. Haith, and big sister to Carey Robert Haith. Her Mother preceded her in death. Kathy attended elementary and middle school in Glencoe, and graduated from New Trier High School; Class of 1983, where she was known as “the girl who got pulled over by the police during driver’s Ed. for speeding through the ‘Ravines’ on Sheridan road”. Kathy worked many year’s at Inter Access and Medline Industries as a Senior Payroll Specialist, and recently made a career switch to Caregiving; which she dearly loved.
Kathy was a devout Christian and founded her love of the Lord at St. Paul A.M.E. Church in Glencoe, IL. Pastor, at the time, Deborah Williams, would start every sermon with ‘IF GOD IS LOVE THAN WE OUGHT TO LEARN TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER”. Kathy’s parents and Pastor Williams’ influence had a strong presence throughout her life. Kathy believed in the power of prayer, her faith was strong, and she appreciated the blessings in her life. One of the greatest blessings is her daughter Ashley. There wasn’t a day that went by that Kathy wasn’t thinking about her Ashley. Ashley brought a special joy to Kathy’s life, and that bond will forever be cherished. There’s something special about a mother daughter relationship, which only the two of them could explain. Ashley has many memories of love, and laughter that will shine bright and always remind her of her mother. Ashley remembers, running through Blockbuster as a toddler knocking videos from the shelves, fun Halloween’s where Kathy and a neighbor mom wore scream masks and scared her as an adolescent, Kathy sleep walking and eating cheese in the middle of the night, Kathy laughing at Ashley making faces with another car next to them at a stop light, and Kathy’s cooking.
Kathy loved her family, and friends, and always greeted you with a smile that made you feel special. Through love that never failed, through love that transcends all barriers, through memories, precious memories that will always fill our souls. In the stillness of midnight, precious memories will unfold. God bless Kathy, and the memories that will never get old. Kathy’s passing has left an enormous void in the lives of her family and so many of her friends. She is survived by her father, Robert C. Haith, and daughter Ashley Haith. Brother Carey R. Haith (Michelle), and niece and nephews: Isabella, Elijah, Austin, Dominic, and Alex. She also leaves to cherish her memory a host of Haiths, Taylors and Williams aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews and nieces; St. Paul family & friends and so many work friends & associates who loved and cherished her so deeply." Please keep the family in your prayers.
