Kathie Jo Emmett, 67, left behind an aggressive battle with dementia and peacefully entered the gates of heaven on June 6, 2019.

Kathie was born to Evelyn and Paul Ash on Aug. 16, 1951, in Billings, Mont. She celebrated 35 years of marriage with the love of her life, Dewey, and together they raised five sons: Nickolas, Clinton, Raymond, Jayson and Adam. Kathie savored time with her 11 grandchildren and two great- grandchildren.

She enjoyed spending time with her siblings, Lee Ash, Penny Wilson, Mickey Ash-Weiss and Frosty Ash. Her home was never too small for any of her many friends, family, or strangers that wanted to drop by for a visit, a meal or laughs.

Kathie shared her love for life and the outdoors with her family.  She never passed up the challenge to catch the biggest fish, tag the biggest buck, pick the right football team, or win the next hand of cards.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Paul and Evelyn Ash; her father-in-law, Dewey ‘Bud’ Emmett, and sister-in-law, Cathy Ash.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Columbus Community Foundation or a charity of your choice.

Kathie’s family would like to extend a thank you to the staff at Billings Clinic, Still-water Billings Clinic and Stillwater Hospice for your loving care to Kathie and support to our family.

The family would also like to say THANK YOU to everyone for their kind expression of sympathy and thoughtfulness. There are really no words to express our heartfelt thanks for the sympathy and support all have extended towards our family during this time of loss.
