Obituary for Kathryn Joyce Atcher Bewley

Kathryn Joyce (“Kitty”) Atcher Bewley (nee English), 88, of Louisville, peacefully departed from this world on October 20, 2018.

She was the youngest and last surviving child of William and Dora (Reed) English. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, a businesswoman, entrepreneur, and a creative, strong, resilient woman of empathy, compassion and tolerance. She enjoyed humor, laughter, dancing, conversation, ideas, current events, challenges, and the “game” of business.

Prior to being widowed in 1974 at the age of 44, Kathryn and her husband of 26 years, Nolte June Atcher, owned barber and beauty shops, men’s and women’s clothing stores, and built two commercial buildings in Radcliff, KY. Moving to Louisville in 1982, she continued to own and manage businesses and valued good fellowship with a diverse circle of friends. In 1990, she married Louis W. Bewley and shared life with him until his passing.

Kathryn was a giving person who quietly cared for those in need, children, the elderly, and the disadvantaged. Many lives were blessed by her kindness, understanding and generosity. Quoting her grandson Jason, “Grandmother always tried to make it right.”

Survivors include two sons, Nolte Steven Atcher (Dianne) and Stanton English Atcher; a granddaughter, Stephanie Atcher Weaver; a grandson, Nolte Jason Atcher (Dana); two great granddaughters, Courtney Atcher and AnnaMae Atcher; three great grandsons, Nolte Atcher, Joshua Weaver, and Jacob Weaver.

Cremation was chosen. Kathryn’s spirit lives on, and also deeply in the hearts and minds of family and friends.
