Kathryn was a friend to anyone who needed one. During my time with Belk, her door was always open to everyone. Whether you just needed to vent or if you needed help, she would do anything she could for anyone. She will live on through the memories, that so many hold, of the positivity and light she brought into our lives. My condolences to her family during this sad time.

I’m so sorry to hear about Kathryn , please accept my deepest condolences
I haven’t seen her in person in many years but did know her back in the day, but we were friends on Facebook and chatted back and forth a few times.
What I remember about her was she was a super sweet person and was always nice to me.
RIP my friend

Kathryn is one of the nicest women I have ever met.  I loved sitting in her office and chatting.  Sending the family prayers during this difficult loss.  She truly will be missed. 
Julie Queen left a message on April 17, 2020:
Kathryn is one of the sweetest, most caring people I know. She was always there for everyone, and I will miss our chats in her office, she always took the time to ask how things were going, and to listen when you were having a bad day. She also saved me many times when I didn't know what I was doing, and didn't complain when I didn't understand. There will always be a hole in the heart of Belk, where she was so loved. My thoughts love, and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time.

When I first met Kathryn we just clicked! She always had a smile on her face and really cared about everyone! She’s has had many reasons to be down and sad, but that just wasn’t her. We talked about Sagan and how he was her snuggle bug! We will forever miss you,but always in our hearts!

We will truly miss Katherine she was very reliable when it came to being a Belk HR associate! She was way too young to go I loved our conversations about local restaurants and good food ! I remember our last conversation was about how she convinced her family into letting her cook Christmas dinner for them because they have always done it for her in years past and she was so proud of the meal that she made them!

My condolences to your family. Kathryn was a wonderful, caring, friendly woman. She worked hard and did a phenomenal job at Belk. I have very fond memories from when I worked with her. 
Ben Fisher left a message on April 17, 2020:
Working with Kathryn was one of the greatest pleasures of my 9 year stretch of managing associates. She was truly one the most genuine caring souls I had ever meet. She took on the role of a “work mom” of sorts to me and I will be forever grateful. Early on when I first arrived I felt quite out of place coming from a large metropolitan area to a southern town I felt a little out of place. But Kathryn was so open minded and loving, she made me feel right at home. She also took care of me when after just a month I got appendicitis, I thought it was just a stomach ache, but she knew better. She made me go to the hospital, and what do you know? Her caretaker instincts were right. This is just one of the many many examples of how caring and love Kathryn was. She was such an asset to my team, everyone was so comfortable coming to her if they had an issue and she would take a truly empathetic parochial to the situation. Thank you so much for everything Kathryn. We miss you, we love you... until we meet again. Ben and the entire belk team.

I am so very sorry for your loss!  I worked with Kathryn at Belk McAlister many years ago.  She also attended Rock Springs Baptist for a short while with me.  I can still hear her laugh!  My prayers will be with all of the family during this time.
Debra Cobden left a message on April 17, 2020:
I will truly miss Kathryn's presence.  At work I might be her 100th question of the day but she would act like it was the first. Her kind words and sweet smile will always be remembered. To her family I send my sympathy and prayers of comfort.
