SIRBAUGH, Mrs. Kathryne Coffroth Wilson

Houston, Texas - Heaven is celebrating this week. Kathryne Coffroth Wilson Sirbaugh entered its gates on Oct. 15. Kay was born in Mount Savage, Md., on Dec. 31, 1918, to Ralph Erskine and Emily Coffroth Wilson. She would be the fourth of five children (Florence [Sampson], Robert, Ralph and Janet [Wheat] born to the couple. After spending her youth perfecting the art of making fudge she entered the nursing program at Memorial Hospital in Cumberland, Md. At the urging of her best friend Mary Neal (who also recently passed on October 11) and after a brief stint as a nurse at John's[sic] Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, she joined the Army Nursing Corps where she quickly rose to the rank of captain,. At the conclusion of World War II she went to work as a nurse at the Kelly Springfield Tire Company in Cumberland. It was there that she met and treated (frequently) her future husband, Leo Paul Sirbaugh. They married on Christmas morning in 1946.

While she excelled as a nurse, she found her true calling as a wife and mother. Kay is survived by her son, Dr. Paul E. Sirbaugh of Houston; daughter, Tami L.
