Kathleen "Kathy" (Odle) Combs, 64, passed away peacefully on March 31st, 2022 at 6:24 am at her home in Columbus, Ohio in the presence of her loving family. 

Kathy was born into a large family, having 5 brothers and 6 sisters, in Louisville, Kentucky on September 18, 1957, child of Guy M Odle and Gracie Lucille Embry. 

She moved to Salem as a young adult and spent the majority of her life there raising her three daughters before relocating to Ohio. 

She made several lifelong friends in Salem and many more friends along the way due to her sociality and amazing sense of humor. She had a tough exterior and was brutally honest, but with a heart of gold she was willing to help anyone.  

Kathy was an animal lover, enjoyed watching sports, gardening, camping, fishing, and most other outdoor activities. She also enjoyed years of playing league softball with her closest friends. 

Memories made are left to be cherished by surviving family members and many friends including her 2 daughters, Tammy Combs and Angelia Lessig; her beloved son in law Jeff Lessig; 4 Grandchildren Kelsey Morgan  (whom she raised as her own), Cassie Blevins, Danielle Pacheco, and JD Lessig; 1 great grandchild, Kristofer Childers; and several nieces and nephews.

She will be reunited with family members preceding her in death including her Father and Mother; her daughter, Amanda (Mandy) Combs; 5 brothers, and 6 sisters.

A celebration of her life will be held on Friday, April 8th at Dawalt Funeral Home in Salem, Indiana. Visitation begins at 4pm with a service starting at 6 p.m. BURRELL FUNERAL SERVICES is serving the family.
