Candles 02

Kathi Jo Ross

October 22, 1958 ~ January 9, 2020 (age 61)


Born October 22, 1958 to Faherty Lee {Joe} Braden and Geri Gayle Braden in Jacksonville, Arkansas

Kathi graduated from Jefferson High School in Lakewood, Colorado, and attended Community College of Denver.

Kathi was that warm, smiling person that made you happy that you knew her. She said many times that she was put on this earth to be of service, and help those in need. That was the way Kathi lived her life. You needed help, Kathi was there. If love is, indeed, what makes the world go round, it spun a little faster because Kathi was in it. She was so full of love, and so loved by all who were fortunate enough to know her.  Kathi often said “It’s the brightest candle that burns out soonest”.  Kathi was that brightest candle that shone so brightly on everyone she touched.  She will be sorely missed by all the many people whose lives she touched. She will live on in our hearts forever.

Kathi leaves behind her husband of 33 years, Gordon Ross, Her son, James Lee Ross, her parents Faherty and Geri Braden, her two sisters, Kelli Lyn Matz {Jim}, Tammi Lee Herd{Mike} and niece and nephews.

Kathi slipped peacefully away in her sleep during the early morning hours of January 9, 2020. That brightest candle will always be bright in our hearts. We love you Kathi.
