Katherine Britt Obituary

Katherine Ivelly West Britt, 86, Phil Campbell, Alabama passed away on January 15, 2024 at Hamilton, Alabama

Katherine was a beloved mother who instilled a strong work ethic in her children and grandchildren. She loved to cook and her daughter, Sandy said“she cooked the best of meals”. She could go from baking a pan of biscuits to running a chain saw which she did.  If the car was moving she wanted to be in it especially going to yard sales and flea markets.  Katherine was a yard sale queen, many times going to look not buying anything. She loved and completely adored all her grandchildren. Of course we must mention her fur babies that she loved as if they were her children.

Visitation will be Sunday, January 21, 2024 from 1:00 -3:00 pm at Akins Funeral Home, Russellville, Alabama.  Funeral services at 3:00 p.m. in the Chapel with Bro. Patrick Sutton and Bro. Boyd Woodall officiating. Burial to follow in  Blue Springs Cemetery located on Highway 75, Phil Campbell, Alabama. (If weather permits)

She was preceded in death by her husband, Walter Britt; parents Chester and Emma West

Katherine is survived by her daughter, Sandy  (Craig) Miller; sons, Randy Britt, Ronnie (Barbara) Britt, Michael Britt. . A host of loving grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. They will all miss her energetic personality.

Pallbearers Ronnie Britt, Randy Britt, Michael Britt, Craig Miller, Daniel Miller, Casey Miller.
