FERRIDAY – Funeral services for Katherine Mildred Horne Galloway, 97, of Ferriday, LA will be held at Young’s Funeral Home Chapel in Ferriday on May 16, 2023, at 10 a.m. with Rev. Clyde Ray Webber and Rev. Steve McDonald officiating. Interment will follow at Natchez City Cemetery under the direction of Young’s Funeral Home.

Katherine Horne Galloway was born on Monday, Sept. 7, 1925, in Picayune, MS., and passed away Tuesday, May 9, 2023, comfortably, surrounded by loved ones. She was a lifelong resident of Ferriday and a member of Sevier United Methodist Church. Mrs. Katherine was a devoted mother and homemaker for her family; she was also a hard worker and a great cook. Well into her years you could find her tending to her flowerbeds or putting together a great meal for her friends and loved ones until she was unable. Even then, she made sure to tell you how things needed to be cooked and how she liked her yard to look. Her family, the town of Ferriday, and its residents will miss Mrs. Katherine and the mark she made on the community.
