Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Kathline “Kathy” Farnsworth Neubauer, age 79

Kathline “Kathy” Farnsworth Neubauer, age 79 of White Hall AR lost her battle with ovarian cancer on May 8, 2021. Kathy, born November 1941, in Iowa City, IA attended Iowa City H.S. Her father, Paul Farnsworth died (2015) and she precedes her husband William Neubauer (White Hall), mother, Elnora Farnsworth and brother, James Farnsworth both of McGregor, IA, in death. Kathy married William Neubauer in Iowa City in 1958. They raised 4 children, Dawn Bright – Alexander, AR, Diane Koopmann, Benton, AR, David Neubauer of East End, AR and Marianne Shafer of El Lago, TX. 

They had 8 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. Kathy and Bill were partners in life having been owner-operators of their own Truck Driving business. They also were restaurant owners for 20 years. After they retired, they enjoyed traveling the North American continent, camping for 25 years.

Kathy loved sewing, quilting, creating all types of crafts and traveling.

Kathy requested that there be no services. She will be cremated at A Natural State Funeral Service. We would like to thank the cancer team at UAMS for caring for a Kathy during her fight. We also want to thank her sister-in-law Sandy Farnsworth for the moral support, advice, strength and humor she provided to our mother on the days she needed someone to lift her spirit.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers please make a donation in Kathline’s name to Ovarian Cancer Research or the Arkansas Food Bank.

    Kathy was one of the best, ever. She was like a Mother ro me, and my heart is broken 💔 I will never forget her strength, kindness and love for her children and grandchildren. Peace be with you my friend.

    I love you to infinity and beyond. I’m going to miss asking you for advice and talking to you in general. My short little GMA! Your hugs were truly out of this world. GMA was truly an amazing woman, you put up with GPA all these years which is amazing. The running joke that’s your GPA or Aunt I don’t claim them, probably one of the gags I’ll miss the most. The second one is “getting our family together is like herding cats.” You we’re always telling me be patient and get along with my brother, because your brother (uncle Jim) was such a good brother to you. You always said wait until someone turns 25 then you will understand them better. Your patience knew no bounds. Let’s not forget her extreme love of Mickey Mouse, these are just some of the things I’ll miss. You taught me so much about life. I’m glad you were my grandmother. I love you and I hope to see you again someday

    So many happy memories of our days together in California, too many to list, but will always remember the good times with the kids and our great coffee breaks. The last few years with our early morning phone calls will always be a treasured memory. Those sixty some years went way too fast. I love you with all my heart.

    There are really no words that can truly express how much you are loved or how much you’ll be missed. Thanks for giving me my first babysitting job, including me in the getaways to the mountains, the advice on quilting, the surprise gifts in the mail—but most of all for being my friend. A light has gone out in for so many people. Rest in peace.

    My deepest sympathy, Bill and family

  • Diane Koopmann Posted May 21, 2021 3:13 PM

    My mom was brave until the very end. She was feisty even facing eminent death. She gave cancer HELL the whole time. I told her We were all very proud of her strength & courage. I’m certainly biased but I think mom was the bravest human I’ve even known. Love you, mom. No matter what the distance is I’ll be with you. ❤️

  • Dawn Posted May 28, 2021 1:39 PM

    What can I say? She’ll always be with me. Always. I will pass on her love for not growing up to soon, for making every birthday a holiday and most of all for not killing me when I put the fake spider in Dave’s bed.Tupperwear party and all.. i laughed so hard.. Then…..
    Love you ma
