Katherine J. Linginfelter

July 22, 1944 — December 11, 2021

Katherine J. Linginfelter, July 22, 1944 to December 11, 2021.

The Linginfelter family is saddened to announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Katherine “Kaka” Linginfelter, of Alcoa, TN, on 12/11/2021.

Kathy attended Alcoa High, and then began training as an accounting representative for Proffitt’s Warehouse in Maryville, TN. Kathy’s accounting training, and her love of accounting services, led to many jobs in the accounting field for over 35 years, where she excelled in Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, and a wide range of accounting duties at: Proffitt’s, Maryville, TN; Odom’s (Tennessee Pride Sausage), Nashville, TN; Melbourne Regional Airport, Melbourne, FL; World Airways, Ft. Lauderdale, FL, and McGhee-Tyson Airport, Knoxville, TN. Kathy’s path followed that of her spouse, Ron, and family, as she was able to put her job skills to work almost immediately at the cities where Ron transferred to as a Manager with American Airlines over the years. In addition to her accounting duties, she also packed and moved each household, four complete moves over the years! After returning to Alcoa, TN, Kathy and Ron found a loving church home and joined Sevier Heights Baptist Church, where they still attend.

Kathy is survived by her spouse and life-partner of 62 years, Ronald L. Linginfelter, of Alcoa, TN; her son and daughter-in-law, John and Priscilla Linginfelter of Maryville, TN; her daughter and son-in-law, Janet and Todd Adams of Bethpage, TN; special family member, Michelle Palmer, of Newnan, GA. Grandchildren: Justin and Cindy Linginfelter of Knoxville, TN; Isaac and Phallan Adams, and great-granddaughter Gracyn of Portland, TN; Jake and Kayla Adams, and great-grandson Walker of Westmoreland, TN; Kaitlyn Linginfelter of Newnan, GA; Kellie and Max Driver, and great-grandson Bo of Carollton, GA; Jesse Adams, and great-granddaughter Raylin, of Portland, TN; as well as many nieces / nephews and great-nieces / nephews.

Kathy was preceded in death by her son, Michael Lee Linginfelter; her parents, Jesse Lee and Hazel H. Jones; her brother and sister-in-law, Duane and Mary Jones; her mother- and father-in-law, Rev. William S. and Thelma Linginfelter; her brother-in-law, Rev. Henry H. Linginfelter; her brother-in-law and sister-in-law Ronald and Joyce Hughes, and her longtime friend, Sandra Berry.

Final arrangements for Kathy are to be held at McCammon-Ammons-Click Funeral Home in Maryville, TN on Saturday, December 18, 2021, receiving friends at 11:00am, followed by Kathy’s Home Going and Celebration of Life service at 12:00pm with Dr. Hollie Miller, officiating.

The family extends our heartfelt thanks to all that have impacted Kathy’s life in so many ways.

To my wife of 62 years: “I will miss you tremendously, but I am also looking forward to our reunion in the Lord’s presence in the future. You will always be loved.” Ron and family.
