Kathleen was born January 7, 1930 during a blizzard in Lamesa, Texas to Charles and Lola Tyler, the firstborn of seven children. Kathleen grew up during the Depression, and experienced the hardships of that era. As a teen, she picked cotton. Later she worked in a sewing factory, and then was a manager at the soda fountain in Collier’s Drug Store in Fort Worth.

She married the love of her life, Ed Provence, in 1961. They were together until his death in 2005. They reared two children together and welcomed Ed’s son, Michael, whenever he could visit them. She loved her children unconditionally.

Kathleen loved people and people loved her. She had many friends and stayed in touch with family. She had a great sense of humor and loved to tell stories and jokes and wrote some stories and poems. Her hospitality was unsurpassed.

She was a woman of faith and taught her children right from wrong and how to treat people with respect. Kathleen was a Jehovah’s Witness and she loved to help others by teaching them what she had learned in the Bible.

In 2009, she married Jim Lusk and they enjoyed going dancing or listening to music every week until he became ill and went into the nursing home. She moved in with her daughter. She loved life until the end and even though she suffered from memory loss and other ailments, she charmed everyone. She had a sweet disposition and was a joy to her family.

She was preceded by her parents; husband, Ed Provence; husband, Jim Lusk; grandchild, Mikaela Grauman; sisters, Charlene Riddlehoover and Dorothy Nell Fritts; and her brother, Jack Tyler.

Those left behind to cherish her memory are her daughter Gena Grauman and husband Shane of Springtown; sons, Mark Provence and wife Lori of Weatherford, and Michael Provence and wife Sue of Boyd; seven grandchildren; Misty, Shawna, Michael, Brent, Amber, Joey, and Mindy; four greatgrandchildren; two sisters, Melba Melton and Glenda Tyler; and her brother, Donald Tyler.
