Kathy passed from this life into the presence of her Lord Jesus Christ at 6:42pm on 4-18-2017. She was born in Jacksonville, Fl. on July 9th, 1949 to Peggy Juanita Ponds Houde and Arthur W. Houde. She is survived by her husband Mike Childers, and two daughters Michelle K. Childers Mitchell of Delray Beach, Fl. There Michelle lives with John her hubby and has a daughter Misty A. Lane and grandsons Charlie and Oliver. Kathy’s youngest daughter Wendy J. Childers lives in the High Springs, Fl. area and has been a constant companion of her parents in these last years of medical challenges they have faced. She also left three brothers, Arthur W. Houde, Brian Pless and Mark Pless with his wife Joanne and son Little Mark (my buddy). There are a host of others worthy of mentioning here especially our loved ones at the churches we have been a part of over the years. Currently we are pleased to be members of Hopeful Baptist Church in Lake City, Florida.
Kathy had what appeared to be a simple fall on grass but it was followed by two massive strokes as she was on blood thinners. On the 17th of June 1967 Kathy and I took our marriage vows while holding hands in Hunter Park Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Fl.. Then she left this life, just 49 years, 10 months, 1 day, 1hour and 42 minutes later while we were holding hands. The person which I have shared my life with was taken from my side into the presence of her dear Lord Jesus Christ.
