Memories Timeline


  1. Kelly & Sheri,

    You are in our thoughts and prayers. Please let us know if there is to be a service.

    Love, Tom & Martha

  2. Kelly/Sheri – my deepest condolences to you and your entire family.

    I will miss my friend, big sister, sometimes mother and counselor.

  3. Shari and Kelly,
    I am very sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. May God comfort you during this difficult time.

  4. Kelly and Sheri,
    I know we’ve never met, but I feel like I know you two through your mother. She and I worked together at S-A for several years. I considered her a friend, a confidant, and a strong member of our Human Resources team. She was a real pro! Your mom was so much fun to work with – we used to laugh almost daily, sometimes at the silliest things -just to maintain our sanity! I’ve always regretted that we lost touch after S-A and was so stunned to learn of her passing. She was a beautiful lady and I will miss her spirit. May God bless the two of you and comfort you in this time of sorrow and loss. My thoughts and prayers are with both of you.

  5. Shery and Kelly,
    I worked with Kathy at Scientific-Atlanta when she was in the Health Services department and I was in Corporate Human Resources. I will always remember her fondly. She was a special lady and good friend. Now she’s safe in the arms of Jesus.

  6. Shery and Kelly,

    I worked with Kathy at Scientific-Atlanta when we were both in Human Resources. She was a special lady, always caring and so helpful to the employees. She had such a wonderful sense of humor which helped us all keep a positive attitude and made the workplace better for many – all the while maintaining her high degree of professionalism. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.

  7. Dear Family,

    I was so sorry to hear of Kathy’s passing. I had the pleasure of working side by side with Kathy in Human Resources for quite a while. She had the sweetest spirit of anyone that I know of. She was a wonderful person and will surely be missed. She touched many people and I am a better person by knowing her. Know that she served her purpose on earth and she did it well.

  8. We are so sorry to know that Kathy is no longer on this earth. We have so many fond memories of laughing with her. She will be missed.
    Jo and Tim Tieslau

I worked in HR at Scientific-Atlanta and even though I didn’t work with Kathy directly, I do know that she was a very kind person and had a very sweet spirit.
