Obituary

Kathryn (Kat) Ellen Ayers Jackson, 66, passed away June 24, 2018 after a lengthy illness in San Antonio, Texas. Kat was born on October 1, 1951 to William H. Ayers and Mardelle Lou (Anglin) Ayers, in Harlingen, Texas. She was a Harlingen Cardinal before moving to Southern California. "Kat" was a talented hairstylist and began her career while in California. Her career took her to Irvine, California, where she worked at Cody Rose Salon. Then later back home to Harlingen to work with her sister, Vicki at Vique's Beauty Salon and most recently to Cactus Flower Salon in Spring Branch, Texas where she worked with sister, Marlee. She was very loyal to her clients and would travel every 6 weeks back to Irvine, California to care for her clients. Kat loved to travel and made several trips to Italy, Spain, Greece, and Fiji, to name a few.

Kat loved her Lord, her family, friends, and her profession. Her incredible passion for life and her joy for living and giving to others were evident daily in her face and her constant smile, which survived until the end of her beautiful life. She never missed an opportunity to make someone else feel good about themselves, even if it meant getting out of her hospital bed to style nurses hair in the middle of the night.

She was preceded in death by both parents. She is survived by a son, Andrew McClendon Jackson; brother, Billy Ayers of San Benito; sisters, Vicki (Ayers) Gonzales of Rio Hondo and Marlee (Ayers) Green of Spring Branch, Texas. She is also survived by an abundance of lifelong friends. All of us will miss her greatly, but we know she is now in the perfect place with her Lord and Savior.

There will be a memorial service celebrating the life of our dear sister and friend at a later date.

Approximately 114,000 men, women, and children are on the national transplant waiting list. 20 people die each day waiting for a transplant, and every 10 minutes another person is added to the waiting list. One person can donate up to 8 lifesaving organs and potentially save 8 lives. Kat's wish was for more people to become organ donors, not only for herself, but for the thousands of others in need. Signing up on your state registry means that someday you can save lives as a donor, by leaving behind the gift of life. Register to be an organ donor on www.organdonor.gov or at your local motor vehicle department.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to your local humane society or to the charity of your choice.
