SALISBURY -- Katharine, age 92, died on Friday July 9, 2010, at The Lutheran Home at Trinity Oaks, in Salisbury, NC.

Katharine was born on October 29, 1917, in Chesterfield, South Carolina, the second daughter of Mary and Charles Hunley. She graduated from Chesterfield High School and continued her education at Winthrop College, receiving an A.B. Degree. She taught school in South and North Carolina.

During World War II, Katharine served in the American Red Cross Hospital Recreation Service. Later, receiving a Master of Education from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, she was certified as a Speech Pathologist. Her education career spanned 45 years. During the summers of the school year, she continued her learning at various educational institutions in University of Hawaii, San Francisco State College, Appalachian State, The Peabody Institute, and The Morganton School for the Deaf. Katharine had a life membership in the North Carolina Speech, Hearing and Language Association and also was a life member and had national certification in the American Speech and Hearing Association. Her volunteer work included 10 years in the Audiology Speech Pathology Department in the VA Hospital in Salisbury, NC. She was involved with Unity Presbyterian Church as long as she was physically able. Active with The Republican Women in Rowan County, Katharine donated considerable time to their causes. In retirement, Katharine polished her writing skills, bringing enjoyment to family and friends through her biographical and event writings.

After the death of her first husband, Walter Hooper, in 1964, she married Hobert Bost of Woodleaf. The marriage lasted 33 years until the death of Hobert in 2008. Katharine was preceded in death by her older sister, Margaret Hunley Moore and her younger brother Charles L. Hunley. She is survived by 2 brothers, and 2 sisters.
