Mary Kathlene Ledbetter-Woods, Kathlene to her family and friends, passed into Eternity with our Father on February 8th, 2023, one day after her 62nd birthday.
Kathlene was a devoted wife, mother, daughter, and friend. She is the beloved “Mimi” of two grandchildren whom she adored with all her being.
She made friends of strangers and appreciated people for their genuine selves. She loved simply and deeply, and that love was returned by the many whose lives she touched. Kathlene had many friends from her childhood, high school, and early career days that she doted on.
Kathlene was a 1978 graduate of Dobie High School in the Pasadena school district and spent many years working in data entry and commercial property management while caring for her family, before health issues caused her to relinquish a job outside her home.
Kathlene will always be remembered for her sweet spirit, her intelligence and cleverness, her beauty, and her devotion to her family and friends. She is survived by her husband of 34 years, Jim; daughter Melanie Davis and husband Matt, their children Griffin and Nellie; daughter Megan Camacho and husband Todd; daughter Melissa Keeler and husband Leo; daughter Monica Woods, and son Mitchell Woods. Kathlene also leaves behind her mother, Faylene Fullmer and husband Myron; her father, Don Ledbetter and wife Kay; parents-in law Lynne and Paul Woods; sister Collene Zuchowski and husband Brian; sister Darlene Howlett and husband Jeff; nieces Caitlin Zuchowski, Candace Zuchowski, Macy Howlett, Ashlyn Melton, Colleen Sharp, and Caitlin Woods; nephews Aaron Woods, Matt Howlett and Christopher Zuchowski, in addition to her aunts Claudette Bratcher and Marcielle Ledbetter, and numerous cousins.
