To the family of my dearest and best friend Kathleen (Kat). It sadden me to learn about the passing of a true friend, but i know that she is resting peacefully. She will be missed, but never forgotten. She will always live in my heart…To my godchild Cherel, always remeber the love that your mother had for you and Lil Lee.

You will always be remembered by the Winston family. Although years have gone and past and you were many miles away, You were always thought of and we appreciate the fact that we got the opportunity to know you as a child and know you turned out to be a remakable woman, mother, daughter, friend and citizen. We pray for the Truss, Foley, and West family. Carole will always remeber you.

It will be the little things
that you will remember,
the quiet moments,
the smiles, the laughter.
And although it may seem
hard right now,
it will be the memories
of these little things
that help to push
away the pain
and bring the smiles
back again.

With Sincerest Sympathy

I will never forget my dear friend, Kathleen. There are so many life-long memories, hearty laughs, good cries and inside jokes that made our relationship more like a sisterhood. Shopping will never be the same! May remembering your warmth, wisdom, strength, and caring spirit comfort those you have left behind.

To the Foley family,your sorrow is felt in our hearts. We will always remember the good times that we shared with you. It seems like only yesterday our children were growing up on Wilson Ave in New Orleans. We enjoyed a wonderful life as neighbors and friends. Its hard to believe that we are saying goodbye to Kathleen.
Love you, love you always…

To the West, Foley and Truss family; Our hearts were sadden when we heard the news of Kathleen’s death. She was a fine woman, a loving mother, good wife and a child of God. To Lee and Cherel, mom is gone physically but she will always be in your heart. Keep the faith and God will give you peace in time. She will always be looking down on you. Mr. Truss, you brought so much joy to her life and God will give you the strengh to go on each day. Our prayers are with each of you.

Hi this is Debora Davis Jones
Your LSU college roommate.
I just found out about Kat through website.

#30 Comment By Debora Jones On April 16, 2020 @ 6:15 pm

I just was happening to listen to the radio where the name Kathleen was mentioned and that about my college friend Kathleen Foley and I decided let me google her name to see if I can find her. I had not seen or heard of her since 1982.
I am very sad to find the passing of my college friend. Kathleen was a great person and full of love. Stephanie Hawkins was my roommate and through her I was introduced to her friends Kathleen Foley and Carol Wilson all attended St. Mary’s in New Orleans. I know that she made a great wife and loving mother. Rest in Peace, Kathleen!

Hi Carole
This is your college friend Debora Davis Jones from LSU.
I just found out about Kathleen when I happened to google her name. She came to my mind when I heard the name Kathleen on the radio and I decided to look her up and found her obituary. I am so sorry and sad to hear this news!
