Ava ‘Kathy’ Hartmans, 73, of Knoxville, Tennessee, reached her savior’s heavenly embrace on August 31, 2023. Kathy was born on October 05, 1949 in Franklin, PA.
She is preceded in death by her father, Robert Beatty and mother, Frances Beatty. Her two brothers, Rob Beatty and Jacky Beatty.
She is survived by her husband, James Hartmans; sons: James (Kim), Robert (Casandra), and Peter (Candy) Hartmans; grandchildren, Jesse, Hagen, Harlem, Hyndrix, and Simon Hartmans. Also, her sister, Carol West; and her brother, Mackey Beatty.
Mom was a profound Christian who spent her greatest years raising three boys who loved her unceasingly. Her selfless heart and unwavering faith led her to being a devout wife to her husband, giving her last dollar to ones in need, praying for loved ones and strangers for hours on end. She battled severe mental illness for the majority of her life, which was the greatest testimony to her faith and unwillingness to give up hope.
Visitation will be held at St James Episcopal Church in Knoxville, TN at 11 a.m. on Saturday, September 9. The Reverend John Mark Wiggers will conduct the service in the church at 11:30 a.m.
