Kathleen Estelle Raymond (~1934-2021)

Kathleen Estelle Raymond, 87, of Dripping Springs, TX, went to be with her Lord, suddenly, on July 13, 2021. She was the youngest child of her late parents, Clark and Ethel (Estelle) Davenport, and was preceded in death by her siblings Clark Davenport, Joyce Mathewson, Donna Hamblin, and Roger Davenport.

In 1952, she married the love of her life, Frank J Raymond, raising a family of 5 and enjoying almost 69 years together.

She was a homemaker, a fantastic baker and chef, a seamstress, a brilliant gardener and florist, a chauffeur, a pianist and organist, a lunch packer, a cheerleader, and a task master. She was really good with the evil eye when you acted up, or a hug when you needed one. She was a deeply religious person who loved her family, her music, and her flowers, and she had a beautiful smile with the best dimple. She was a beloved daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great great grandmother, and all of the millions of other things moms are to their families every single day.

Kathleen is survived by her devoted husband Frank, her children Susan (Ron) Hubbard, Karen Carter, Joseph Raymond, Melissa Raymond, and Heather (Erik) Atkinson. She was a beloved grandmother to 9: Jessyca Bruss, Jaime Simpson, Jeremy Carter, Jenny Carter, Amy Webster, Erin Schilling, Sean Hubbard, Torin and Olivia Atkinson. She was great grandmother to 11: Paige and Ashley Carter, Ella Bruss, Kirstyn and Koen Smith, Justin and Dani Simpson, Cole and Kinsley Webster, and Parker and Lola Schilling. She was great great grandmother to precious little 2-year-old Luke.

Funeral services will be held at the First Baptist Church of Dripping Springs on Saturday, July 31, at 10 am, with interment immediately following at Phillips Cemetery.  A luncheon will be provided at the church after the burial. A video feed of the service will be available at: https://www.fbcds.com
