Kathy Sue (Thompson) Alford

July 27, 1951 ~ November 2, 2021 (age 70)


Kathy Sue (Thompson) Alford age 70 of Moody, AL., went to be with the Lord on November 2, 2021 surrounded by her loving family.

Kathy was a devoted wife, mother, and nana. She never met a stranger and brought a smile to everyone’s face. She was beautifully sarcastic and always ready with a southern quip. She loved gardening and had a green thumb that could bring the most wilted plants back to life. She never hesitated to lend a helping hand and loved visiting with her sisters and brothers.


She was born in Altoona, AL. to Schula and Mary Jo Chandler Thompson, and graduated West End High School in Walnut Grove, AL in 1969.
Kathy leaves behind, to carry her memory, her devoted husband of 50 years Leldon Alford.
Daughters; Katrina (Randy) Bell and Brooke (Brandon) Rolader; close niece Teresa Bright, and a host of nieces and nephews.
She also leaves behind her grandchildren, that she loved dearly, Harper and Jackson Bell, and Ansley and Jamison Rolader.
She is also survived by her sisters Ruth Adams, Ann Wells, and Pattie Ryan, and her brothers Larry Thompson and Johnny Thompson.
She was preceded in death by her parents, brothers; Ralph, Ellis, Roy and Billy Thompson, and her sisters; Martha Levra, Helen Lay and Jinnie Brueggeman.
