One of God's great prayer warriors was called home on Saturday, Nov. 22, 2014. Kathryn Ann Lockwood lived a life devoted to others. Although she worked in her high school days as a nanny for Dr. and Mrs. Clark, and had a short employment history at Parker Pen, for the majority of her life she devoted her time to taking care of Lawrence and their seven children. In her older years, she took care of her dad, aunts and uncles, neighbors, grandchildren, assisted the priests and nuns of St. Patrick's parish as needed, and prayed for any and all who needed it. Her prayers and care for others was her trademark in this life. She was a wonderful wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandma, great-grandma, friend, and woman of faith, and now she is dancing with Lawrence, the love of her life.
