PROSSER, Kathryn Louise

Kathryn Louise Prosser
age 6 months, 1917
photo taken at Wade Studio, Youngstown Ohio

This photo was located at the Highway 127 Yard Sale last summer, in Anderson County, Kentucky.

A quick peek into finds that this is Kathryn L. Prosser, born 1 Apr 1917, a daughter of William Robert Prosser and Emma Amelia Griffiths.

Her sisters were Charlotte (1918-2005, married to Stephen King Hawkins) and Rhoda (1924-2000, married to Robert Dale Gustafson).

At the age of 21, Kathryn married John J. "Jack" Walters (1914-1997), an excavating contractor. Jack and Kathryn lived in Hubbard, OH, a neighboring community to Youngstown. They had daughter Kathy Walters (1943-2013), who married M.B. "Ben" Mitcham.

Kathryn died 14 Nov 2005 in Sarasota Florida at age 88. I believe that after her husband Jack passed, Kathryn went to live with either her daughter Kathy who lived in Bradenton Fl, or her son Ken Walters of Sarasota FL.
