Kathi Jo Bartley, (Joey) – whose character is best known as one “to give the shirt off her back”, to anyone who would ask, passed away on October 25, 2022.
Joey is survived by her mother, Kathleen Edwards, her only daughter, Chelsea Bartley, two sisters, Jamie Cavallaro and Toni Marie Bartley, nephew, Tyler Bartley, and her eagerly awaited grandson; Ron-Anthony Ambrose.
She is predeceased, joining her loved-ones in Heaven by her father, Anthony Bartley, her grandmother Rita Bartley and her angel Sandra Senior.
Joey is best known for her loving heart, her generous way, her lighthearted personality and her forgiving nature.
Although she suffered with sickness for a large portion of her life, she always made the best of it, keeping an optimistic attitude and a beautiful hope for the future, at the forefront of her mind.
She gave birth to her only daughter in 1993, and saw this as her greatest accomplishment in her life. Joey was excited to welcome her first grandson into the world this coming December 2022.
Joey was loyal to her family and loved them unconditionally. She was a daughter, a mother, a soon-to-be grandmother, a sister, an aunt, a niece a cousin and a friend to just about anyone that she could strike up a conversation with. She was a light for others in the world, even if she didn’t realize just how special that her impact was, on a daily basis. She was a bright spot in the day, for both her loved ones and those that she came across. You could always count on her to leave you with a story that would have you laughing, long after the story was over. And now, as she is finally at peace, she has left us with her light, love and laughter, as we honor and continue to honor her memory.
A celebration of life is to be announced.
Friends and family will be notified, when a date, time and location is established.
