Kathy A. Trillo
Kathy A Trillo, 64, was reunited with her Lord and Savior November 27, 2018 in Clay Center, KS. Funeral services will be held at a later date in California.
Kathy Trillo was born on November 1, 1954 to the late Arlin and Katherine Payne in Pomona, California. Kathy was especially close to her daddy and often reminisced about their time together. Growing up Kathy’s family moved frequently due to the demands of her father’s job. Even with the ever changing addresses, Kathy’s family was a constant, a trait that defined her life. Kathy worked in civil service, and always enjoyed helping others. She had a quick wit, and her ability to make others laugh and smile is how she will be remembered most. Kathy had an artist’s spirit and enjoyed painting, leather works, with quilting and sewing being her most recent hobbies. She was a talented seamstress, and could sew beautiful garments without the aid of a pattern. Kathy loved babies but most important were her babies. She is survived by her 3 children who love and miss her dearly and as they carry on with their journeys in this life, they will always be grateful for the loving maternal guidance and support she provided.
Survivors include her children Rachel and Barry Munger of Wakefield KS. Jason Payne and fiance Amanda Rego of Lebanon, KS and Raquel and Troy Campain of Lawton, OK. Ten grandchildren Holly, Erika, Brandon, Tiffini, Anjelika, Levi, Zack, Ashley, Nathan, and Ava (Squishy) . 5 great grandchildren Elijah, Benjamin, Aiden (Little Man), Audrey, and Colby. Also 3 brothers Richard (Rose) Payne of Arizona, Darryl ( Maria) Payne of California and Jimmy (Jamie) Payne of California and 2 sisters Linda “Sissy” (Wayne) Dahl and Janet (John) VanDyke, along with numerous nieces and nephews. She is survived by her ex-husband Jerry Trillo of Wichita Falls, TX. Though their union did not last, their friendship remained. Also surviving is her best friend Mary Miller of Nashville, TN, who was a longtime companion and confidant.
