Mary Kathryn Welborn

Mary Kathryn "Kathy" Welborn was born February 15, 1959, in Bakersfield, California to Ventura Jimenez & Betty Pharis. She received her associate’s degree in Childcare Development and worked at numerous daycare centers in the Houston area for forty years.

Kathy had lived in Willis for the past twenty years and attended The Ark Church in Conroe, Texas. She enjoyed going to the casinos and especially, she and her husband’s yearly camping trips to Colorado. While in Colorado, Kathy loved to fish for trout in the many beautiful lakes surrounding the camping area. Kathy also loved the color purple, which happened to be the color of the birthstone for February, Kathy’s birth month. Most of all, Kathy deeply loved all of her family and enjoyed spending her time with them.
