Katie Lance Howington

March 20, 1939 ~ July 27, 2020 (age 81)


Katie Lance Howington took her last earthly breath July 27, 2020. She was not suffering or in pain. She was at peace… she was ready for her next journey.


Katie loved music. Old country, bluegrass, gospel and especially Elvis Presley. In her younger years she loved to clog and sing. She became quite a local karaoke star prior to her health failing in recent years. Katie never met a stranger. She loved to talk and share the stories of her life.


She and the love of her life, Gilbert, were passionate about boating and fishing. They raised their children on/near the water – skiing, fishing and camping. Katie was a proud

Marine Corp wife, often raising her children alone while her husband served several tours to Viet Nam.


Katie loved her family. She is survived by a son, Randy Steven Howington and daughter, Kim Howington Nelson; daughters (by choice) Katie Jeane Howington, Cristie Diane Howington and Kerry June Howington. Sisters, Linda Rice,

Carolyn Bryson and Janice Bryson. She is also survived

 by five grandchildren, James (Scooter) Howington, Michael (Mikey) Howington, Lydia Bartley, Brittni Addison and Seth Nelson as well as three great- grandchildren.


Katie is predeceased by her husband, Gilbert Luther Howington; two sons Gilbert Luther Howington, Jr. and

James Richard Howington; her brother Gail Lance

and her sister, June Haynes.
