Obituary of Kitty Cribbs
Please share a memory of Kitty to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Katharine "Kitty" Marie Cribbs, 83 years, of Kearney, Missouri passed away on Sunday, November 28, 2021. Kitty was born on Tuesday, March 29, 1938, at home in Shamokin, Northumberland County, Pennsylvania. She was preceded in death by her parents, Perry and Evelyn Erickson, her husband Jack Cribbs, and granddaughter Maggie Cribbs. She is survived by her brothers Lynn (Kim) Erickson of Slatington, Pennsylvania, and Craig (Karen) Erickson of West Chester, Pennsylvania, her son Perry (Michelle) Cribbs of Ash, North Carolina, and her daughter Tamera (Jeff) Couchman of Kearney, Missouri. Kitty leaves behind grandchildren Avery Zorn, Austin Zorn, Quenten Zorn, Thomas Cribbs, Taylor Couchman, and Katie Couchman as well as many nieces and nephews who always referred to her as Beautiful Aunt Kitty. She also leaves behind friends, too numerous to mention, who are as precious as family. Kitty lived life to the fullest and when asked how she was, would generally respond with "Blessed and Highly Favored!" She and Jack served in many areas of ministry. Their wide scope of influence started in Somerset, Pennsylvania; then spread to Greenville, South Carolina; Highland, Kansas; Pensacola, Florida; Bristol, England; Chattanooga, Tennessee; Rochester, New Hampshire; and Owatonna, Minnesota. They semi-retired to Missionary Acres in Silva, Missouri before making Kearney, Missouri their final home. Visitation will be held on Thursday, December 2, 2021 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Hidden Valley Funeral Home of Kearney, Missouri. Graveside service will be held on Friday, December 3, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. at Higginsville Missouri Veterans Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorial donations be made to Good Shepherd Hospice or Child Evangelism Fellowship,
