   Katherine Mae Haley Bigley

Katherine passed away on Thursday, January 10, 2019 in Battle Creek, Michigan. She was a native of Grayling, Michigan and a resident of the Battle Creek area going back to her childhood years. Kathy married Phillip Bigley on January 6, 1967 in Battle Creek. She worked for the Battle Creek Public Schools as a bus driver from September 1999 to July 2010. Kathy enjoyed scrap-booking, crocheting, camping, and playing bingo. She also enjoyed bowling and even played in some of the leagues. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family and grandchildren. She loved her family fiercely. Kathy was strong willed and had a lot of fight in her. But she also had the kindest, most generous soul. She was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. Survivors included Katherine’s husband, Phil; children, Tina Balch, Brenda (Jerry) Sutfin, and Donald (Leigh) Bigley; brother, Arthur (Kathy) Haley; six grandchildren; a step-granddaughter; five great grandchildren; and a step-great granddaughter. Katherine was preceded in death by her parents, Herbert and Effie Haley; and grandsons, Zachary Lee Sutfin and Wyatt Edward Bigley.

I didn't know Kathy personally, but I do remember passing her in the halls at BCHS.  She always had a nice smile.  I offer my condolences to her family.  She will be remembered fondly.
