Kathy Rolland Hoskins, Clinton, passed into the arms of the Lord July 23, 2011 while at her home surrounded by her loving family.

She was born July 6, 1950, in Oak Ridge to parents R.C. (Dudley) and Katherine Jenkins Hoskins.

She was raised in the Clinton community where she graduated from Clinton High School in 1967 with a tight group of close friends. She attended Virginia Intermont College in Bristol, Va. Her career was caring for her family as well as working in the family pharmacy and hospital supply business in both Harriman and Loudon.

She was born with many gifts. She was a gifted gardener and decorator. She loved antiques and surrounded herself with beautiful pieces from the past. She was a historian and knew the importance of knowing her family’s story. She held tight to letters, pictures, even pieces of fabric that former generations had laid their hands on. Everyone who knew her was aware of her greatest gift, the gift of gab. She loved to talk, loved conversation, and loved to reminisce. Her gift of gab was so extraordinary that her grandchildren affectionately called her Gabby.

She bravely fought Multiple Sclerosis, but did not allow her disease to define her. She enjoyed life to the fullest, and was the life of the party. She was determined to live an active life until she was no longer able to do so.

She had a great love for her children: Steve, Jessica and Keri. She will be missed greatly by lifelong friend Candy Holbrook Garrett, and cousin Eddie Key.

The family would like to give special thanks to Kathy’s friends and devoted caregivers who assisted her children in carrying out her wishes to live out her final years at her home in Clinton.

She is now joined in Heaven with parents, R.C. and Katherine Hoskins, and granddaughter, Addison Elizabeth Legg.

She will be forever missed by: Children Walter Stephen “Steve” Stewart II, Jessica Stewart Legg and her husband Jason Legg and Keri Kathleen Stewart; grandchildren, Jason (Jake) Legg Jr., Katherine (Kate) Legg, Reese Legg, and Olivia Creason; sisters and brothers-in law, Dudley and Jenks Bostic, Sheree Herbst, and Mollie and Rick Scarbrough.

She was blessed with many nieces and nephews, cousins and special friends.

The family received friends beginning at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday July 27, 2011, with a memorial service to follow at 7 p.m. at Second Presbyterian Church on Kingston Pike in Knoxville with The Reverend Bryan Wilson officiating.

In lieu of flowers Kathy requested that donations be made to the M.S. Society.
