Mary “Kathryn” Coffey, of Thorn Hill, passed away November 4, 2021, peacefully at her home. She was a member of Mt. Pleasant Methodist Church, where she faithfully served as long as her health allowed. She was active in her community and worked alongside her late husband, son, and daughter in law building Oakwood Manufacturing. She was a devoted wife and caregiver. She was affectionately known as “Mamaw Kak”, to her grandchildren as well as others. She had a great sense of humor and enjoyed a good practical joke even when she was the target of the joke.

She is survived by her son Steve (Beverly) Coffey, daughter; Judy (Jerry) Nye, grandchildren; Brandon (Aubrey) Kilby, Stephenie (Shawn) McGinnis, Zachary (Victoria) Kilby, great grandchildren; Tinley and Maylee Kilby, brother; Rhea Scearce, sister; Virginia “Jenny” Roberts, several brothers and sisters in law and many nieces, nephews and friends.
