Kathy Sunbeam Owens Leftwich

Kathy Sunbeam Owens Leftwich, 66, of New Kent, Virginia, passed away in her sleep unexpectedly and went to be with the Lord on July 31, 2022.

Kathy loved spending time with her husband and her family. She especially loved spoiling her two grandsons. She loved the beach, sipping on a rum drink, and dancing to the twist. Kathy had an infectious laugh and would help anyone in any way she could. She truly made anyone around her feel like family.

Kathy is survived by her loving husband of almost 48 years, Christopher Leftwich Sr.; a son, Christopher Leftwich Jr. (Danaire); two grandsons, Noah and Luke; mother, Louise Owens; three brothers, Wayne Owens, Warren “Bubba” Owens (Rosemary), and Michael Owens; her only sister, Tricia Weakland (Ken); as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, family members, and friends.

A memorial service was held on Friday, Aug. 5, 2022, 3 p.m., at Vincent Funeral Home, 9923 Pocahontas Trail, Providence Forge, Virginia. The family received friends one hour prior to the service.
