November 26, 1946 – May 4, 2023
WANCHESE — Kathy Daniels Ruhle was born into this world on November 26, 1946, on Jovers Lane, just yards from where she left us to be with the Lord on May 4, 2023, after a long and courageous battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
To say Kathy was a homemaker is an understatement. She was a housekeeper, chef, teacher, taxi, secretary, accountant, travel agent, navigator, writer, sewer, quilter, hostess, and preacher (when needed).
Kathy completed 12 years of school with absolutely perfect attendance. She loved school and was responsible for helping some of her children and neighborhood kids graduate. Kathy was also an active and faithful lifetime member of Bethany United Methodist Church. She loved and trusted in the Lord with all her heart.
Kathy is survived by the love of her life Jimmy, whom she faithfully stood by for over 57 years; her older sister, Ann D. Mihovch; a younger brother, Johnny Daniels (Connie); her four children Darana, Betsy, Bobby (Ina), and Stevie (Stephanie); four grandchildren Laurin, Lexi, Ethan, Kate; and her service granddog Dolly.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Betty and J.T. Daniels, and her oldest son Jim.
Kathy was the rock of her family and the glue that held it together. Although she has been gone for some time and will be greatly missed, we seek comfort knowing her fight is over and she rests peacefully in heaven.
A funeral service will be held at 11:00 am on Tuesday, May 9, 2023, at Bethany Church of Wanchese with a graveside committal to follow in Tillett Cemetery.
Donations in memory of Kathy may be made to Bethany Church of Wanchese (PO Box 239, Wanchese, NC 27981) or the Alzheimer’s Association (225 N. Michigan Ave., Fl. 17, Chicago, IL 60601).
