JOHNSVILLE: Mary K. “Kathy” Goodyear, 49, of State Route 314, died Wednesday morning March 10, 2004 in her home following a long illness.

A homemaker and avid quilter, Kathy moved to Johnsville 16 years ago from the Delaware area. Her interest in genealogy occupied her time and lead to volunteer library work.

She is survived by her husband Carl “Gene” Goodyear, whom she married February 20, 1981; two daughters and a son-in-law Jenny Rose Myers of Columbus and Kelly and Richard Russell of Warren, Arkansas; three grandchildren Sabrina Lynn Myers, Catlin Russell and Justin Russell; her mother Sylvia Sparks of Mount Vernon; two sisters and brothers-in-law Margie and Jack Lusby of Marengo and Bonnie and Paul Armstrong of Mount Vernon; a brother Charlie Sparks of Marengo; and nieces and nephews.

Her father preceded her in death.
