Kathy Braden, 57, was born July 22, 1965, to Jim and Pat Essary. She passed peacefully in her home March 20, 2023.
She is preceded in death by her father, mother, and sister Rhonda.
She is survived by her husband Mark Braden, son Aaron and wife Brittany; five grandchildren Ebony, Bentley, Chloee, Bryce, and Dwayne; sister Terri Vaughn; many uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.
She spent her life teaching. She loved her students and grew bons with them. Many of them would run up to her and say, “Mrs. Braden” if they saw her anywhere. She truly loved this special attention.
Her greatest joy was her family. Her grandchildren meant the world to her. Many weekends and summers consisted of family outings to have fun and spend time together. She absolutely loved spoiling them on holidays and birthdays.
