Katelynn Ann "Katie" Thomas

Katelynn Ann “Katie” Thomas, age 31, was called to her Heavenly home on Thursday, May 9, 2019, in Louisville, Mississippi. A celebration of Katie’s life will be held at 2 p.m. in the Nowell Massey Funeral Home Chapel on Monday, May 13 with Rev. Mason Joy and Rev. Michael Wells officiating. Visitation will be the day of the service from 12 noon until service time at Nowell Massey Funeral Home in Louisville. Interment will follow in Sardis Cemetery.

Katie was born November 23, 1987, to Sherry Lynnette Eaves and Charles “Terry” Thomas in Pulaski County, Arkansas. She was a 2006 graduate of Louisville High School. Later she graduated from East Central Community College in Decatur, Mississippi; attended Mississippi University for Women; and she attended East Louisville Baptist Church.

Katie is survived by two beautiful children, Ethan James Thomas and Zoe Elizabeth Ainsworth. She is also survived by her father and step-mother Charles “Terry” and Cheryl Thomas of Louisville; and her grandparents Glenda Thomas also of Louisville; and Gilbert and Annette Eaves of Macon. Katie also leaves behind her siblings: Brandy Fuller and husband Robby; Megan Polatsidis; Jordon Oswald; Matthew Meyer; Maria Sventek and husband Drew; and Jimmy Polatsidis. She is also survived by two nieces Jacey and Gracyn Fuller; and five nephews: Andrew and Henry Oswald; Mason Polatsidis; and Damon and Brendan Sventek.

Serving as pallbearers are Greg Duke, Will Duke, Charles Gentry “Bubba” Eaves, Robby Fuller, Matthew Meyer, and Josh Sakalaukus.

Katie had an abundance of love and faith, and in everyone she met. She enjoyed singing, teaching, road trips, going to the beach and hanging out with her children, who were her pride and joy.

Katie’s smile was a joy to behold and it's something we will never be able to replicate and will forever miss. We thank the Lord that her mom, Sherry Polatsidis, her step-father John Polatsidis and her Pa, Charles Thomas are with her. “A smile is a wish your heart makes” and we wish your freckle-faced smile was here.
