Kathryne “Kathy” Ruth Wilson Hobbs, 72, of Tifton passed away Saturday, May 21, 2022 at The Medical Center of Navicent Health in Macon.
Born September 9, 1949 in Tift County, Kathy was the daughter of the late John A. and Junetta “Shorty” Wilson. She was also preceded in death by her brothers, Bill and Ray Wilson, and her sister, Lou Anne Wilson Abell.
Throughout her life, Kathy was known for the innumerable roles in which she served within her community. Kathy worked as a pharmacy technician at Behavioral Health Services for several years before her retirement in 2008. She was a skilled seamstress, baker, homemaker, wife, mother, nana, friend, and sister in Christ. Kathy enjoyed giving her time faithfully to her church.
