Kathleen Mae Byerly

We had to say goodbye to a precious lady. Kathleen Mae Byerly, age 87, passed away on Monday, April 15, 2024, at the McPherson Hospital in McPherson, Kansas. 

She was born on October 14, 1936, in Towner, Colorado to Russell and Jania McWilliams Hofmeister. On June 17, 1956, she married William (Bill) Byerly in Towner, Colorado. He survives.

Kathy is survived by her husband; daughters - Kimbra (Clinton) Sides of McPherson, Kansas; Tamara (Kevin) Winn of Wichita, Kansas; and Cindra (John) Lloyd-Mace of McPherson, Kansas. Nine grandchildren - Danielle (Grant) Claassen of McPherson, Kansas; Levi (Kayla) Sides of McPherson, Kansas; Katelyn (Cole) Smith of Prairie Village, Kansas; Garrett Winn of Eugene, Oregon; Eric (Laura) Lloyd of Shawnee, Kansas; Jackson Lloyd of McPherson, Kansas; Nathan (Fiance Stacey Pham) Lloyd of McPherson, Kansas; John Mace, Jr. of McPherson, Kansas; and Michael Mace of Lindsborg, Kansas. Ten great-grandchildren - Ian, Ana, and Caleb Claassen; Kyson, Vivica, Everly, Devlyn, and Genevieve Sides; Kelly Hannah and Dakota Purcell. A sister, Russella Cathcart of Hooker, Oklahoma, and numerous other relatives.

Kathleen is preceded in death by her parents, infant brother Raymond, and sister Ellen Easley.

Kathy had been a member of the Tribune community since 1956 where she spent time working in an abstracting office and in the FSA office. She was a 4-H leader and enjoyed dancing, playing tennis, bowling, and card games. She and Bill enjoyed the opportunity to travel throughout the United States and several foreign countries. 

Kathy was a loving and hardworking partner with Bill on the farm. She wasn’t afraid to help with anything that needed to be done. Her greatest joy was her family and she made every effort to be involved in the lives of her children as well as in the lives of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. 

Toward the end of her life, Kathy became very weak and frail. Her stubbornness and willpower to fight was fierce. Kathy's passing has left a huge hole in our hearts and will be greatly missed.
