Anna Kathryn (Kat) Humphries, 89, of Lexington, KY, died Friday, April 14, 2023, at Central Baptist Hospital with her loved ones by her side. Kathryn was born in Morning View, KY and called many places around KY home while growing up. Kathryn graduated from Livingston High School in Livingston, KY. She and Jim settled in Fort Thomas, KY to raise a family of her own.

She took great joy in all children and felt blessed when she and Jim moved to Lexington so that she could be close to her grandchildren and be a part of their lives as they grew up. Kathryn loved being a part of a large family and enjoyed hosting gatherings for any occasion.
