Kathy was born November 8, 1940 in Cushing, OK, to Allen Troy and Amanda Pauline (Drake) Robertson. She attended Cushing schools and graduated high school in 1958.

Many things were special to Kathy. She enjoyed listening to many types of music but her all time favorites were George Jones and Tammy Wynette. You would often hear her say “right here, right here" as she pointed out her special part of the song. Raymond always enjoyed seeing the excitement in her eyes when they would go on train rides together as it brought back childhood memories of her time spend as a young girl on the Katy Railroad. She also enjoyed reading, gardening, canning, and cooking. Her signature dishes were homemade Chicken & Noodles and various kinds of pies. Out of all her accomplishments in life, the one that she took the greatest pride in was being a homemaker, always working to make her house a home. She loved being a mother and grandmother but most of all, being the wife to the man who could always bring the biggest smile and instant twinkle to her eyes even after all these years. She loved many and was loved by many and will be greatly missed.
