Kathie Roby

December 7, 1944 — October 1, 2023

Katherine (Kathie) Wilder Bailey Roby, age 78 of Clarksville, TN, went to her heavenly home on Sunday, October 1, 2023.
A celebration of life will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, October 6, 2023, at First Baptist Church of Clarksville with Dr. Ronny Raines and Rev. Pat Van Dyke officiating.

The Roby family will receive friends from 4-7 p.m. Thursday, October 5, 2023, at McReynolds-Nave & Larson Funeral Home and on Friday from 9 a.m. until the hour of the service at First Baptist Church.
Kathie was born on December 7, 1944, in Gainesville, TX, daughter of the late Robert and Jane Elizabeth Beaumont Bailey. She was a Girl Scout, served as a summer missionary, worked for the U.S. Army at Fort Campbell and the Baptist Sunday School Board, taught elementary school and preschool, and faithfully attended and served at First Baptist Church. Despite her health struggles over many years, Kathie always shared her beautiful smile and infectious laugh with anyone around her. She had a peaceful spirit and a love for nature, camping, traveling, and painting. Most of all she loved her family and friends and gave of herself generously. She was an amazing listener and unfailingly kind and encouraging.
In addition to her parents, Kathie was preceded in death by her husband of 48 years, Frederick Eugene Roby; brother, William Robert Bailey; brother-in-law Don Roby; and sister-in-law Rosemary Roby.
Left to cherish her memory are her daughter, Elizabeth Roby (Robert) Stillwell; son, Tim Roby; brother-in-law, Wilbur Ray Roby; grandchildren, Clara Jane Stillwell, William Roby Stillwell, and Katherine Aylene Stillwell.
Pallbearers will be William Roby Stillwell, Robert Stillwell, Caleb Bullock, Shane Williams, Bobby Smith, and Elliott Watts.
