Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 21, 1957
Pottawatomie County
Oklahoma, USA
Death: Feb. 20, 2013

Kathy Marie "Giddens" Durham left her mother's loving arms to fly with the angels on Feb. 20, 2013, after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

She was born Aug. 21, 1957, in Shawnee to Roger and Pat Giddens.

She married Mike Durham on Nov. 12, 1988.

She had various jobs during her life, but her favorites were working at Dale school and the Citizens Potawatomie Elders Center where she was head cook for almost 10 years until her health forced her to retire. She loved her elders and they loved her in return. They loved her contagious and beautiful smile, and her wonderful cooking.

Kathy loved the outdoors, NASCAR, and drag racing. She was a very avid fan of OU football. One room in her house was her OU room.

She is preceded in death by her beloved father and her grandparents.

Those left to cherish her memory include her mother, her husband, one brother, Bud and Paige Giddens; one sister, Yvonne and Hugh Crow; her mother and father in law, Betty and Jerry Chastain of Shawnee; two sisters in laws, Karen and Randy Brasfield of Marysville, Wash., Melita and Rick Ortiz of Hereford, Texas; one brother-inlaw, Steve and Hermila Durham of Norman, numerous relatives and friends, and her special boy Kulson Yates. She will be greatly missed by her family and all her friends.
