Our Tribute to Kathryn Scarborough

Kathryn was born to us in Nacogdoches, Texas, on May 9th, 1979. God called her home in her sleep Wednesday morning, October 27th, 2004, at the tender age of 25. Kathryn suffered quietly and heroically with an incurable disease for seven long years, accomplishing more in her brief time on earth than most people do in a full lifetime. Never one to say I canít, she became a gifted long distance runner while enduring incredible suffering.

Her one unfulfilled goal of qualifying for the Olympics in the Marathon Event, was surpassed as she was elevated into Godís presence. Kathryn won many awards running long distance and in 2002 finished second in the Houston Marathon, qualifying her to compete in Athens, Greece the same year. She passed on that honor to run for the SFA Lumberjack Cross Country team that won the Conference Championship.

Kathrynís greatest passion was to please her Savior. Her love for Christ, tempered by her suffering, gave her a great love for hurting people. Every day we meet another life she affected.

We miss her terribly, and we grieve over her loss, but the tracks she left during her 25 year marathon on this earth, bring great solace to our lives.

Pastor Rod Compton, of Craig, Colorado, will oversee the celebration, assisted by Dr. Alan Reed and Rev. Ronnie Sowell.
Kathryn is survived by: her sister, Misty and her husband, Daniel Allmond, of Nacogdoches, Texas; her nephew and niece, Micah and Alexis Allmond, whom she adored; her brother, Richard Scarborough Jr. of Houston, Texas; her Grandparents, Tommye and Glyndon Adams, of Nacogdoches, Texas, and Billy and Ginger Scarborough of Martinsville, Texas; her Aunt and Uncle, Jim and Sheila Adams of Martinsville, Texas, and her namesake, Aunt Kathy Randall, of Pearland, Texas; and her Parents, Tommye Glyn and Dr. Rick Scarborough of Martinsville, Texas.

Her remains will be temporarily stored in the Martinsville, Cemetery, until called forth on that great day of our Lordís return. We sorrow not as those who have no hope, but with certainty, we look forward to seeing her again because of the one who gave His ONLY son.

Till then, we weep, but we also rejoice, because our trust is in Christ.
