Kathy is preceded in death by her parents James C. Johnson, Jr. and Bonnie M. Motl Vaughn Johnson. She is survived by her loving husband of 47 years, Don J. Patrick, Sr. Kathy was a devoted mother to her three beautiful children Rachael M. Patrick (Jessica Weinberger), Don J. Patrick, Jr. (Heidi P. Patrick), and Kelly J. Patrick (Jesse Matherne). She was a cherished grandmother of Keelie, Kiara, and Don J. Patrick III (Trey). She was also a dear sister of Anita. J. Savarese, Keith A. Johnson, and the late James C. Johnson III (Patricia Johnson). Kathy graduated from Grace King High School in 1976, and met the love of her life at the age of 14 where their love blossomed over the many years spent together. She was a proud resident of Madisonville, LA for the past 30 years and considered it home. She was a dedicated, loving mother and nana that treasured her children and grandchildren to the fullest. She embraced every moment with them. Kathy made friends everywhere she went and was a beacon of light with her infectious smile and personality. Her love for others was unconditional. Everyone she met was greeted with either being called babe, love, or honey. She was the most unselfish person you would ever meet having a heart of pure gold. She was a passionate Saints fan, Popeyes fanatic, Casino enthusiast, persistent photographer, Mardi Gras parade addict, and devoted caretaker to her parents. She also enjoyed spending time with her family, playing cards, bird watching, and gardening barefoot. Kathy was a zealous hummingbird enthusiast who made sure the feeders were always filled, flowers were blooming, and windows were cleared so she and her husband, Don, had a perfect view. Kathy spent her professional life as a devoted business owner with her sweetheart and children by her side. They owned Pat's Seafood in Metairie, LA, Seafood World in Covington, LA, and Northlake Seafood in Mandeville, LA together. She loved and cherished all her customers and treated each one of them like they were part of her family. Kathy will be dearly missed by her vast extended family and will forever have a place in their hearts.
