Kathy Lynn Dyal was born on February 5, 1960. As a young girl, she was a blonde, spunky, energetic and loving child. She carried those traits through to her adulthood and continued to be an energetic, beautiful, fun loving, smart and thoughtful woman.
Kathy was the very proud mother of two children, Elizabeth Dyal Medlin and Christopher Daniel Dyal. She was known as “KK” to her three grandchildren, Julian Dyal, Carter Medlin and Claire Medlin. She was very proud of her son-in-law, Joshua Medlin. Kathy loved her family more than anything. Her love, compassion and care for others carried through to her profession as well as a registered nurse. Kathy worked in healthcare facilities and also as a hospice nurse for many years.
Kathy’s faith anchored her in life. She taught her children to love themselves and above all to love and trust in God. Her faith was evident in the life she lived and in the way she treated others.
Kathy loved nature and enjoyed the simple things in life. She also had a taste for all things spicy and was known for her rare ability to eat the hottest peppers and the spiciest sauces without blinking an eye. She loved all types of music and loved to dance like no one was watching.
While her family and friends will miss her terribly, the memories made with her will forever be in our hearts and will carry us through the days ahead until we are reunited with her again in her forever home in heaven.
Her smile, her beauty, her loving and compassionate soul continues on through her children and her grandchildren. She will always be young, beautiful and energetic in our memories and in our hearts. Kathy loved Angels and now she is an angel herself, our guardian angel to watch over us all and to remind us that despite the worries, stress and heartaches of life we all face here on earth, that the truth is that we are all only here for a short time and so long as we believe and trust in God, we will never be alone. Kathy has now joined her guardian angels in heaven, all of her loved ones she has lost in her life, and oh what a reunion. Until we meet again, we feel sure Mama would say “don’t worry, be happy, everything‘s gonna be alright.”
