Katherine Marie Love Rawls, a longtime resident of Richmond, Virginia passed to her Eternal Rest on Friday, August 24, 2018, at Brookdale in Fredericksburg. Born on May 22, 1927, Katherine was one of nine sisters and 2 brothers born to John Arthur Love and Vienna Virginia Liner. She also had one half-brother. The family lived in Crewe, VA for many years. She met the love of her life, Mr. Tony Cobb Rawls, and they married on April 8, 1950 in Richmond, VA. Katherine worked for and retired from the Federal government after twenty years of service. Tony and Katherine enjoyed fishing and boating on the Rappahannock River. They owned a lovely boat aptly named the “Kathrina”. She enjoyed music of all genres and learned to play the organ.

Tony and Katherine had one fur baby who was no baby at all, but a beautiful German Shepard named “Ike” for President Ike Eisenhower. They loved and doted upon many nieces and nephews who are left to mourn the loss of the sweetest aunt anyone could hope to have.

A graveside service will be held at 2:00 pm Sunday, August 26, 2018 at Ivor Cemetery. R.W. Baker & Co. Funeral Home, Wakefield Chapel is serving the family. Condolences may be posted at www.rwakerfh.com.

Guestbook

We have so many wonderful and cherished memories of our beloved Aunt Katherine and Uncle Tony. Uncle Tony was always quick with his whitty expressions and jokes which he said with a very dry tone so as if to catch one off guard just to see if you caught on. He was handy in the kitchen, ready to tie on an apron and whip up his recipe for oyster stew -- delicious.
Aunt Katherine was equally spontaneous with her whit, charm and laughter. She always greeted us with "Come over here and give me a hug."
Tony & Katherine were a force to behold, spreading their love, good humour around, putting others at ease, and well fair at heart.
We are saddened with Aunt Katherine's passing, but take consolation knowing she is with her Savior Christ, Tony and host of family she has joined.

Our Sweet Aunt Katherine ( Aunt Katy-dig)
You will be forever missed but always in our hearts. I have so many cherished times with my family and me. My falling out of your boat bunk-bed...breaking my jaw in my college days at your house (ok, they arent cherished but their times you and Uncle Tony were there to comfort me).
You dancing with my hubby to Dinah Washington on Christmas day. Your love of snacks and music!
Mostly, Im grateful that God gave me the chance to spend many hours with you. Watching you look at Uncle Tony's picture and saying how much you loved. Your honey Im going for a walk and get something to eat. Thank you for calling me out the time we shared are time together. I had started my new job and hadn't been to see you. I walked in and you said "Where have you been, honey" and said just call me out, Aunt Katherine. We spent quality time. God has his loving arms around you. You have your peace now with your Tony. Love you and in my heart. Carol Jean
