Kathy was preceded in death by her parents, two sisters, one brother, two sons, Ryan and Wayne Odson and a granddaughter, Brittiney Lyons. Kathy was born to Lester David Drew and Marjorie Claudine Anderson Feb. 5th 2009 in Madison S.D. She grew up in Madison S.D. and later moved to Sturgis, working as a nurse's aid for the Sturgis community nursing home. After her work in Sturgis she attended college and then moved to Belle Fourche where she married Herman Farrar. Kathy loved life to the fullest, writing poetry, watching Sci-Fi, and her 2 dogs, Bailey and Sati, but most of all enjoying her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and friends. Kathy also loved the ladies of Curves, looking forward everyday to her coffee formals with the girls, and being given the title of "2 shots Kathy" from her friends at Brewed Awakenings. Her memory lives on in all those she touched in this life, and while her loss is felt by all-the love she gave and the memories shared will never be forgotten. We have lost someone truly special but gained an angel, for she rests in heaven with the Lord.
