Obituary for Kathryn J. Lemons

Kathy ascended with her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to heaven on April 30, 2020.

She passed away peacefully at her residence in Kirtland, Ohio.

She was born October 18, 1937 in Fayette County Pennsylvania.

She always felt that faith, family and love could conquer anything.

She instilled these values into her children throughout her life.

She had a contagious sense of humor which could be ornery at times.

She always told her children not to weep over her grave.

Her body was merely a vessel for her soul while here on Earth.

She would continue to live in heaven and the hearts and memories of all.

Another of her sayings was,"Bring me flowers when I'm alive and can enjoy them."
"Don't bring them to me when I'm dead."

Kathy had retired from Kirtland School District.

Kathy is survived by her children: Debra (Ken) Conner of PA;
Sons, Charles (Jean) Johnson of PA; Jacob (Pam) Johnson of Painesville Twp;
and James E. Lemons III of Kirtland. Brother Bud (Sandy) Sutton of PA and sister Diane (Pete) Clinard of Florida. Niece Rachelle Koontz Parker of Florida, whom she treated
as a daughter. Sisters-in-law Janet (John) Koontz & Janet Lemons, brothers-in laws Donald & Mack Lemons all of Florida.

Her nine grandchildren, Sam, Ryan, Jennifer, Joshua, Lisa, Laurie, Mike, Dana & Julie.
As well as 10 great grandchildren Kaylee, Justin, Katelyn, Conner, Mackenzie, Aubrey, Robbie, Parker, Ayden & Mathew and great-great grandchild Delilah. Nephews Brian & Doug. Grand niece Melissa & great-grand nephew Devon

Preceeding her in death was her husband, James E. Lemons Jr.; son, Gary Lemons; Parents, Cordie Pepe and Phillip Sutton; step-father Sam Pepe; and her grand-parents, Jake & Kathryn Bowers.

Due to Covid-19 there will be no services. There will be a celebration of Kathy's life at a later date.

I didn't know you but surely you cast a big shadow of love
I didn't know you but I have often felt your spirit brush by me
I didn't know you but I knew you oh so well for there were moments when your name and face would suddenly appear.
I didn't know you yet I knew the very moment you left for heaven.
For to know your son Jimmy was to have known you. As the next years pass we will all continue to know you because that's just the way Jimmy is - God rest your soul and God Bless Jimmy.

Thank you so very much for your kind words. You very much would've liked her. As she would've liked you. I mentioned your name & told her of what a great person you are. It's like she had known you for years. Bless you my friend.

So sorry to hear of her passing and your loss. I was not around her often but Aunt Kathy's laugh and smile are what I remember most. May all her family and friends be comforted by good memories and the love that lives on.

Thank you. We're taking comfort in knowing she's in heaven & no longer in pain. We all have a little piece of her in our soul. A piece that should be remembered & cherished.

She was special to so many. The last goodbye is always the most difficult one to say.
