Kathy was born on Feb. 21, 1940. in Alamo to Carl and Ellen Eddy. Kathy grew up in Alamo where she and her family were connected to the community, involved in the church and enjoyed camping trips. Kathy later married Carroll Don Wisenbaker of Donna. They were married for 47 years until Carroll passed away after a short battle with pancreatic cancer in 2005. Carroll was Kathy’s love and world. The two did everything together. Carroll was a long-time farmer and Kathy devoted her time to staying home with her two children, Michael Wisenbaker and Jacqueline Cardenas,and being Carroll’s support. For over 50 years Kathy was a member of the First United Methodist Church where she devoted much of her time anywhere needed. She sang in the church choir and served on numerous committees in the church. When Kathy moved to Boerne in 2009 she joined the First United Methodist Church in Boerne, volunteered at Hill Country Family Services and Boerne Convention & Visitors Bureau. Kathy loved the Texas Hill Country.
She was a devoted mother, being a part of her two children’s activities, going to football and basketball games, stock shows and church events. Her children’s friends referred to her as “mom.” Kathy was a mother to all and dearly loved spending time with her grandchildren and being a part of their lives. She loved socializing with friends and family. She is best described as witty, fun, happy, always smiling, rarely complained and was known as a humble, loving woman.
