Kate was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.  She has been a member of Silver Springs Baptist Church for most of her life and served as their church treasurer for over 25 years. Kate served her Lord and Savior with all her heart, as well as her church family and community.  She worked as an operations officer at Southern National Bank in Mount Gilead for 42 years.  Some of her favorite pastimes involved bird watching, reading, word-search, crocheting, and gardening.  But she cherished most of all the time she got to spend with her family, especially the years she spent taking care of her parents.  Kate was a devoted woman to her God and her family, and will be sorely missed by all who knew her.

Survivors include son, David (Melanie) Little, daughter, Sherry (Paul) Baracco, all of Albemarle, NC; Sister, Connie Myra Poplin of FL.; granddaughters Amber Scott and Megan Little; great-granddaughter, Kaitlyn Helms.
