Kathryn Slusher Lewellen, 84, of Norge, Virginia passed away on Wednesday, December 18, 2013. Born May 26, 1929, in Field, Kentucky, she was the daughter of the late Silas M. and Alice K. Slusher.

She retired from Colonial Williamsburg in 1994. For those that knew her, many will remember that Kathryn enjoyed working in her flower gardens and also loved to knit, crochet and sew. Over the years, she created many beautiful handmade pieces for friends, family and babies of those she knew.
