CEDAR CITY - Sarah Catherine "Kate" Douglas, 95, passed away Oct. 11, 2002 at Kolob Regional Care Center in Cedar City.
She was born April 30, 1907 in Huntington to Georgia Ann Lindsey and Haskel Johnson Majors. She married Clarence Howard and, after his passing, she married William E. Douglas. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Manti LDS Temple.
Kate spent most of her youth growing up on the old family farm southwest of town, where she enjoyed spending time with her mother, working hard and being pampered by her seven older brothers. She was especially close to her brother, Rock. She always enjoyed telling stories of their adventures together.
At the age of 14, her family moved to their home in town and Kate lived there until the last few years of her life, when her health required constant care. She loved her home, kept it neat and tidy and always had beautiful flowers growing in the yard.
She was a caring wife and a hard-working, devoted mother who endured many hardships in her early life. She loved making beautiful quilts and was a provider for her family. She also enjoyed being outdoors, camping, and hunting. She was an excellent marksman, a skill she attributed to the time she spent hunting rabbits with her brothers. She often entertained and created fond memories for her children and grandchildren by reciting poems she had memorized over the years. Even at the age of 95, she could recall the verses that they loved to hear. She kept her sharp memory, keen wit and sense of humor until her passing.
She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where she spent time teaching Primary and providing service to others. She had great faith in the healing power of priesthood blessings, which she requested often.
She is survived by five daughters, Lucy (Byron) Cook, Helper; Georgia (Mark) McDonald, Lander, Wyo.; Sally Thompson, Price; Margaret (Gary) Pfaffenberger, New Harmony; and Pauline (Paul) Roberts, Cedar City. She is also survived by 16 grandchildren, 32 great-grandchildren and 18 great-great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husbands, parents, seven brothers, one sister, an infant son and a great-grandson.
Funeral services will be Tuesday, Oct. 15, 11 a.m., at the 1st/5th LDS Ward Chapel in Huntington. Friends may call at the chapel one hour prior to services. Burial, Huntington Cemetery under the direction of Fausett Mortuary.
