Catherine Jeanette Tatham “Kitty”, 86, passed away on Monday, November 2, 2020 while in the tender loving care of her granddaughter, Jessica Keepper of Hillsboro, IL and family by her side.
Kitty was born and raised in Santa Ana, CA, November 29, 1933 to Fredrick and Meriam (Adamson) McMillan, alongside her two younger sisters, “Joan” Meriam Whitley and Martha McMillan. Kitty married Walter Tatham on December 8th, 1961; he preceded her death on June 1, 2015.
During her life, Kitty worked as a secretary and supported her husband during his Pastoral ministry as they raised their two children, Catherine Erickson of Tucson, AZ and Steven Tatham of Hillsboro, IL.
