Kathy was born on December 16, 1948 in Elmore to Gerald and Berniece Kurth.  She was raised in Elmore and returned to Elmore to raise her own children, Ron and Donna.  She was married to Alvin Ferguson on June 17, 1989. Together they enjoyed fishing, playing cards, and spending time with children and grandchildren.  Kathy also enjoyed her yardwork and coffee with friends, but her greatest joy was found in her love of the Lord.  She enjoyed reading His word, and Bible studies at Shiloh Lutheran Church.  This woman of faith is now resting in the arms of her beloved Savior.

Kathy, saved by grace through faith, is now rejoicing in Heaven with those who preceded her in death; her parents, Gerald and Berniece (Anderson) Kurth; brother, General Ronald Kurth; and sister, Diane Rittenhouse.

Kathy is survived by her spouse Alvin Ferguson of Elmore, children Ronald (Joni) Shank of Savannah TN, Donna (Tim) Buttram of Chaska MN, her grandchildren Joshua, Caleb, & Jon Garrett Shank; Andrew, Ryan, Daniel, and Sam Buttram, and sister, Vicki Terhark of Fairmont.  Also survived by a special stepson, Elmer Ferguson, of Austin, stepchildren, and many step-grandchildren.
