Kathrine Fay Marvin- Obituary

Kathrine (Kathy) Fay Marvin was born on the 27th of February 1955 to J.R. and Mary Yarbrough of Fort Worth, TX. Her family relocated to Grants, NM in 1966. At the age of 11 years old Kathy took on an important role stepping in to help to raise her siblings. In 1971 she met and fell in love with Charles Marvin who would later become her husband in 1972. Together as a military family they traveled around the globe and raised five children. Over the course of next 52 years that family tree produced multiple grand and great-grandchildren, all of whom she treasured and cherished. She filled her home with their photographs and accomplishments and found comfort and content reminiscing on them. 

As the oldest of the Yarbrough children still at home with two working parents, Kathy’s role was to care for her siblings and manage the household chores. She sacrificed much of her own time and opportunities to ensure that the family had the due attention needed. At the age of 17, she had a friend over with some kids from school. Then, stranger, Charles Marvin, helped her with removing melted plastic from the side of electric percolating coffee pot. They were entranced with one another as they shared many of the same domestic responsibilities. 

From that first moment, they were practically inseparable. Spending much of their free time together, the flicker of flame became a bon fire that lasted the rest of her life. She married Chuck on the 22nd of January in 1972, in a ceremony shared with friends and family. Together, they shared in six children. Sadly, a single tragedy would challenge the couple with the pain and heartache. Through strength in love and faith, Kathy and Chuck were able to continue moving forward. 

Over the course of those 52 years as the matriarch of her family and wife, Kathy traveled around the world as a supportive military spouse to Chuck’s ARMY career. Kathy visited many European countries with her family and experienced a fruitful life of love and family. From her children, she loved and was loved by fourteen grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. There wasn’t any doubt that Kathy was a doting grandmother, as it was apparent by walking through her home on the hill. Photographs, professionally taken, emailed, shared through social media are scattered through out the halls and rooms of her home. Some family photographs were as old as she was, but most consisted of her children and her grandchildren. From her swing-leg-hugs and wild stories to her costume jewelry and trinkets of love, Kathy adorn the title of mom, but glorified her role of grandma.  

It is with great sorrow and heartache that Kathy has been called home on Wednesday, April 3rd, 2024.
