Kathie A. Riddle


SPRUCE PINE—Kathie Ann Riddle, age 66, of Deer Park Lake Road in Spruce Pine, dear sister, cousin, and friend passed into the hands of our Lord Jesus Christ on October 28th, 2020 at her home.

Kathie was born on November 5th, 1953 in Stanley, ND and was the oldest of identical twin girls of the late Chris and Betty Lester Niarkos.  In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by a sister, Mary and a brother, Nick.  

Kathie was a graduate of Loyola University of Chicago and she practiced as a Dental Hygienist for forty-five years.  She attended the St. Lucien Catholic Church in Spruce Pine.  Kathie loved the Lord and her church with all her being and now has reached her eternal home. In her spare time, she enjoyed cooking antiquing, reading, and her poodle, Sasquatch.  Kathie will be dearly missed for her kind heart and compassionate spirit by all who knew her.

Left to cherish her memories are her twin sister; Kristie Niarkos of Wilmington, NC; her companion; Garland Allen of Spruce Pine; Dr. Carter Wiseman; her cousins, Debbie, Lori and Kathy, and many nieces and nephews.
