Kathleen Markle

July 11, 1929 — January 22, 2017

Kathleen Gaye (Cogar) Markle, 87, of Webster Springs, passed away on Sunday, January 22, 2017 at Webster County Memorial Hospital. Born July 11, 1929 in Braxton County, she was the daughter of the late Alva and Iva (Payne) Cogar.  In addition to her parents, Kathleen was preceded in death by her husband, Stanton Markle; son, Larry Joe Markle; brother, Ray Cogar; and sisters, Ruth Cool, Anna B. Mustoe, and Shirley Cogar.

She was a graduate of Webster Springs High School, where she played basketball.  Kathleen enjoyed camping and boating.  She especially enjoyed cooking; often making meals that would feed a crowd.  She was known for her green-thumb and people often commented on her beautiful flower garden.  Kathleen enjoyed sports, more specifically, watching her children and grandchildren play.  She was a very gifted pianist, playing for Barton United Methodist Church, where she was a member.  Her talents expanded into singing, as she was also a member of a quartet.  Kathleen loved people, and in return was very well-loved.

Left to cherish her memory are her children, Danny (Joyce) Markle of Webster Springs, Debra (Bryan) Moore of Webster Springs, Shannon (Jennifer) Markle of Gassaway, and John (Tammy) Markle of King, NC; grandchildren, Danielle (Eric) Brooks, Seth (Sherry) Markle, Gabriel (Leslie) Markle, Mark (Shala) Barnette, Jason (Susie) Markle, Travis Markle, Amber Markle, Riley Markle, Katelyn Markle, Kacie Markle, Renee (James) Woods, TJ (Jenny) Dillon, and Eva Dillon; twenty-one great-grandchildren, and one expectant great-grandson; and 8 great-great-grandchildren; brother, Bobby (Sharon) Cogar of OH; sister, Betty Cutlip of Bergoo; her beloved companion, her dog, Rosie; and her cat, Blackie; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends to mourn her passing.
