Katherine, or Kathy, to her many friends and family, was born on April 9, 1942 at Camdenton, Missouri to Edgar W. and Edith C. (Knapp) Andrews. Kathy passed away on Wednesday, April 25, 2007 at her home following her courageous battle with cancer.

She is also survived by nephews Jeff (Patsy) Garrett of Odessa, Texas and Corey Fay of Abeline, Texas as well as her aunt, Marie Hill of Lebanon, Missouri and numerous great nieces, nephews and many friends.

Memorial contributions can be made to the Lamar Area Hospice at P.O. Box 843, Lamar, CO 81052 or through the funeral home office.
Katherine Fay Andrews, better known to her family and friends as Kathy, was born to Edgar W. and Edith C. (Knapp) Andrews on April 9, 1942 in Camdenton, Missouri. She was the middle daughter of three girls; Carolyn being the oldest and Beverly, the youngest. Kathy passed away on April 25, 2007 at her home in Lamar following her courageous battle with cancer.
Kathy has been a resident of Lamar since 1949. She loved the community and was involved in various organizations over the years.
Following her graduation from Lamar High School in 1960, she moved to Denver to work for the airlines but soon after, her love for family, friends, and community brought her back to Lamar.
After returning to Lamar, Kathy worked for Augustine’s Feed Lot, Colorado Beef and finally WHO Manufacturing, where she was employed for over 30 years before retiring in 2007.
While Kathy loved being a career woman, she was definitely a social butterfly. Often times she could be seen out with her entourage who consisted of her two sisters, her brother-in-law and her mother. When she was ‘out and about’, Kathy could be found playing softball, tennis, reading, or watching Bronco’s football. Everyone who knew Kathy knew how much of a die hard Bronco’s fan she was. During any given game, she would go back and forth between hating the Broncos and loving them, but at the end of every game she was still a die hard fan.
In everything Kathy did, she was very strong willed, but that was largely in part due to the female side of the family dynamic. Between her mother, her two sisters and herself they were the four strongest women who left with us the strength and courage to carry on the legacy of our family.
Since Kathy didn’t have children of her own, her nieces and nephews were her pride and joy. Jeff, Jodi, Dana, Corey, Lori, Zeke and Kathy Jo, in her eyes, were the same as her children.
As much as she loved her family, she cherished all of her many friends. Kathy was strong, smart, stubborn, gentle, and caring and she will be greatly missed by her friends and family.
