Bench and Plaque in memory of Kathy Cothren

Today the Foundation of Aging and City of Athens Activity Center dedicated a bench in memory of Kathy Cothren.  Kathy was a servant to the Limestone County, Athens, and Ardmore throughout her life.  The bench is located on the front porch of the Athens Activity Center on Pryor Street in Athens.

Many family members and friends were present at the dedication.  A reception was held after the dedication with some of Kathy’s favorite foods and beverages.  Kathy was a resident of Ardmore, a member of the Greater Ardmore Chamber, member of Community Baptist Church, involved with the City of Athens Relay for Life, Foundation for Aging in Limestone County, served as a mentor for the Athens Mayor’s Youth Commission and was an avid supporter of Ardmore High School and all of the High School’s sporting events.  She along with her husband, Charles, organized and cooked an untold gallons of chicken stew for fundraisers for Veterans, volunteer fire departments, sports teams and many other organizations.
