Kathy was born in Cleburne, Tx on September 26, 1946 to William Lee and Ollie Myrle Bains Powell of Kopperl, TX. After graduating Kopperl High School, she attended Texas Womens University in Denton, Tx. She then went on to be a seamstress before deciding to return to college. Kathy then attended Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Tx., where she received her Masters Degree in Education, graduating with honors. Kathy began teaching in Blum ISD and retired from Rio Vista ISD in May 2004. On December 29, 1972 Kathy married the love of her life, Billy Gene Baugh. She loved her home, family and many friends dearly. She had a special place in her heart for all of the "kids" whom she taught over the years. She loved Jesus and God, and all who knew her, knew that about her. She loved her special friends and particularly eating out with them. At the time of her death she still enjoyed being with people and had plans to learn to be a chef on her new Air-Fryer! Ever the Optimist... She loved fur babies, big and small, like no other. At one time she wanted to become a veterinarian, and would have a good one but... the two-legged babies won out. She was a longtime member of United Methodist Church in Kopperl. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Billy Gene Baugh; brother, George W (Lee) Powell and niece, Deborah Powell, and her fur baby, Wiggi.
