Kathryn Joyce McCormack

Kathryn Joyce McCormack, 80, Harvard, formerly of Woodstock, died Wednesday, Sept.10, 2014, at her home surrounded by her family.

She was born on May 27, 1934, to Irvin and Margaret (Rhodes) Berry in Sheffield, Ala.

She served as a nurse in the U.S. Air Force from 1956 to 1959. 

She enjoyed cooking and baking for her loved ones. She also enjoyed the simple pleasures in life like going shopping and going to garage sales. Family outings were cherished, her family always came first, but the love she had for her cats was a close second.

Survivors include three children, Ronald (Jill) Youngblood, James (Emma) McCormack and Patricia (Chris) Lawrence; four grandchildren, Christopher and Bryan Youngblood and Melanie and Morgan Lawrence; a brother, Kenneth (Dorothy) Berry; and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her faithful companion, James P. McCormack; and two brothers, Thomas Berry and Cecil “Bill” Berry.

Visitation and funeral were Sept. 16 at Schneider-Leucht-Merwin & Cooney Funeral Home, Woodstock. Burial was at Oakland Cemetery.
