Cumberland School, WLCSC. Kathy taught for me for a number of years. I
know Kathy will be missed, but I have fond and happy memories of the years she taught while I was principal. Kathy always had a smile, was so pleasant and loved the profession she choose. Please accept my condolences , she was a fine teacher and helped make Cumberland School one of the finest in this state.
I was so shocked and saddened by the news of Kathy&s passing. I&m sure that we will continually be asking ourselves why? Ours is not always to know why, but to know that God has called her to the place that he has promised us all. In her life, she touched so many and made a difference in so many others lives that she will not be forgotten.
My prayers are with you during your difficult time.
I am very sorry about the loss of a very special loved one. Matt, I knew your Mom long ago. She taught at Covington and I do now. I played cards with your Mom. Jeff, Kathy and I exchanged Christmas cards and I know Matt is engaged. Kathy was a fun and dedicated teacher.

In times of darkness there is a light in which we as human all gather around, that light is family and being close. Mr. Auter I am very sorry for your loss and wish I could help take some of the grief from you. Matt things seem so tough some times but your family has had a big role in your life. Your father keeps you on the straight and narrow and you mother will still keep giving love to you like she has done in the past. Even though I am not there I am always able to keep in contact. I am sorry for the loss and I wish you many beautiful days to come.
Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.
With lots of thought and prayers
Don and I were deeply saddened to learn of Kathy&s passing. Please know that you are in our thoughts. We will always remember her smile.

So sorry to hear about Kathy. Although we have not seen you both for years, we have many fond memories of you both. Praying that God will be with you during this trying time.

I&m so sorry for the loss of your wife. Though I didn&t know her well, I have known and loved you all of my life. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. I cannot be with you for visitation. Our spring break starts today, and I will be out of town for a few days. Perhaps we can get together this summer with some of our classmates. We could throw a 69&er retirement party for Bardos, then for me the summer after!
I did not know that Kathy taught so many years nor that she received so many accolades. She must have touched many chidren&s lives during her teaching career. Obviously she will never be forgotten. Let me know if I can help you in any way.
I am so sorry for your loss.
Kathy and I first met either the fall of 1969 or spring of 1970 in one of our many ed. classes at Purdue. While we were not close, we always ended up in most of the same classes. I remember Kathy being a very smart gal who knew what she wanted, was persistent, studied diligently and took her studies seriously. She pursued her career faithfully and obviously touched hundreds / thousands of lives over the years. (I realized after 2.5 years teaching I did not have the passion I saw in those like Kathy and left the profession.)
I pray you will find strength in the Lord, and that your friends, colleagues and neighbors will gather around to support you during this sadness and grief. Will and Sally Miller have no doubt been there for you for a while now, and they will help you through this.
May God comfort you as no other can.

I am so sorry for the loss of your wife. I am in Tucson now or I would be there. Please let Max know if there is anything you need while I am gone. I will be back the 26th. Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Kathy and I taught across the hall from each other for many of my 15 years at Cumberland. I am so saddened to hear of her passing. She was always so ready to help others. Personally, I know how helpful she was to me when I was new. She will certainly be missed. Elaine

So very sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Thinking of you...
I was so sorry to hear about your mother. I know it will be difficult for Kaylin and your family too. I&m going out of town today and won&t be able to make the visitation. I know you will always have wonderful memories and I&m praying for you and your family. Blessings, Mary Ellen Crose
This past Thanksgiving, my cousin, Betty Endicott from Florida, came to Lebanon. While she was in town, she came to our house for our Thanksgiving meal. Betty is a good friend of Wilma Tarman. Wilma actually brought Betty to our house because she was staying at Wilma&s. Such a small world!
Again, I&m sending my most sincere sympathy and prayers to your family in the loss of Kathy. I will not be able to come to the funeral, but my thoughts will be with you during this time.

I am so sorry to hear of your wife&s passing. It&s difficult to know exactly what to say to you. I can&t imagine.
I pray you keep her memories close to your heart; no one can take those away from you. I will include you in my prayers.
Please take care friend. God bless you.
I am a 1969 Lebanon High School classmate of Kathy&s. I just wanted to extend my deepest sympathy to you as I just lost my husband in May 2009 and know what you have ahead of you. I know there is not much that you can say at a time like this other than people do care and I hope and pray that you find peace in her passing to a much better place. I married John 2 weeks out of high school and I am lost without him. It will be a whole new world for all of you and I wish you all well. I would like to get up to the funeral home; however, I don&t think that I can make it. Please know that I am thinking of you all.
Karen Adams Lasley
John and I send to you our very deepest sympathy. We will be keeping you both in our thoughts and prayers.
God be with you all.

I am so sad to hear of your loss. Kathy was a great teacher and I fondly remember working with her at Cumberland. I learned a lot from her and I know the kids all loved her! I rarely saw Kathy but when I did she always asked about my girls and kept me posted on Matt and what he was doing. She was a very dedicated mother and teacher and I know you will miss her terribly. I hope your memories of her will get you through this very difficult time.
I will miss Kathy&s Kindness and Laughter.
Her friendship was so valued by me for all the years I knew
her. We shared many stories and now tears.
I have nothing but good memories of the times we spent together.
I am so sad. All of the words that people say at a time like this just
have no meaning. Together we will comfort each other.
Pam , Angela and Kyle
We share your profound sense of shock and sorrow at the sudden loss of Kathy. She was a dedicated professional and it is impossible to imagine Cumberland without her presence there. We extend our heartfelt sympathies.
