Kathleen was born Sept. 13, 1915, in Osage, Ark., to Alfred and Ora Allred. She attended school in Arkansas.

She married Hugh Sugg on Nov. 23, 1938, in Berryville, Ark. They immediately moved to Greeley, Colo., and began their farming career, which took them to Twin Falls, Idaho, in 1939, and then on to Glenns Ferry where they purchased their own farm in Paradise Valley in 1946.

Kathleen was active in the community where she registered voters, was a member of the Glenns Ferry Rebekah Lodge, helped to established the first Senior Citizens Center in Glenns Ferry, served as a room mother at the local grade school and helped to raise funds for needy families.

She was an avid gardener and always gave friends and family fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers from her many gardens, her family noted.

She spent years working on handmade quilts, afghans and loved to crochet. Her other favorites were trips to Jackpot, Nev., and playing cards when people came to visit.

"During those visits no one ever left her home hungry," her family said, adding, "she had a strong religious belief and all of her family and friends were remembered often in her prayers. She was a very faithful and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend."

She is survived by: a daughter, Janet Sugg Hahn, and her husband, Bill; a son, Wayne Sugg, and his wife, Velma; five grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren (her 10th great-grandchild will be born in the next two weeks).
