Kathryn Bragg Graybill, 75, of Lynchburg, VA, died peacefully Friday, December 10, 2021 at her residence. She was the loving wife of Roger Graybill for 38 years.
Born January 3rd 1946 in Richmond VA, Kathryn was a daughter of the late Gordon Hugh and Margaret Wirt Bragg of Appomattox VA.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by a son Gordon Smith and daughter-in-law Kristin, a sister Margaret Ann Swisher and brother-in-law John, a sister Patty Branch and brother-in-law Sam, three grandchildren who she cherished with all her heart, Nathan, Ryan, and Owen Smith, a sister-in-law Josephine Wells whom she thought of and called her “sis”, a brother-in-law Kevin Tucker, a brother-in-law Jeff Tucker, and her extensive family at the law firm of Caskie & Frost where she had worked as a paralegal for over 47 years.
Kathy would travel as often as possible to see her grand babies in California, and her love of the water had her traveling often to Nags Head, Virginia Beach, and her home away from home near Deltaville Virginia.
Kathy was a devoted, caring, and loving wife to her husband Roger, and loved her family, her work family, and friends dearly. She was always cheerful, happy, caring, and always a “glass half full” person who will be greatly missed by us all.
The family would like to thank Centra Hospice for their loving care during her illness.
