Obituary for Kathryn J. "Katie" Garvin

Kathryn J. Garvin (Katie), age 94 passed away peacefully in Knoxville, Tennessee on March 3, 2018

Katie was born in Urbana, Ohio on January 16, 1924. She followed her husband Glenn around the country when he was transferred for his job, and they retired to Lynn Haven, Florida. In Florida, she was active in Senior Friends, Master Gardeners, Newcomers, and Red Hatters. Katie, in the words of a special friend in Florida, was a beautiful woman. As she lived her life she planted seeds of faith, love, kindness, peace, beauty and helpfulness. She was a stellar example to all with her unconditional love for her friends and family. She always thought of others.

She is preceded in death by the love of her life for almost 75 years, Glenn Garvin; son (Ronnie) and five brothers and sisters.

Katie is survived by her daughter, Linda Scothorn, (Jim); grandsons, Douglas, (Bonnie) and Daniel, (Banks); and four great-grandchildren, Reid, Rebecca, Sarah and Sam, and honorary granddaughters, Gina and Jennifer Lucas. Katie thought the moon rose and set with these precious grand and great-grandchildren

A memorial service will be held at Farragut Presbyterian Church on Sunday, March 11th at 2:00 pm with receiving of friends immediately following. A private interment will be held at a later date at the East Tennessee State Veterans Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Honor Air of Knoxville or to Random Acts of Flowers.

Our family wishes to thank the staff of Deane Hill Place and Amedisys Hospice for the loving compassion while Katie was under their care.
