Kathryn Monk Fedors

Kathryn Monk Fedors, 53, passed away on November 8, 2023.

She was preceded in death by her son, Jackson Nutter; brother-in-law, Jesse Alspaugh; maternal grandparents, Dr. and Mrs. Guy Amory; and paternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. James Monk.

Kathryn is survived by her husband, John Brent Fedors; children, Morgan, Jennifer, and Dylan Nutter; stepdaughter, Alex Fedors; parents, Norman, and Beverly Monk; brother, David Monk; sisters, Melinda Monk Salken (Neal) and Barbara Alspaugh; and nine nieces and nephews.

Kathryn was a resident of Gloucester County. She was born in Newport News on June 26, 1970, attended Ferguson High School and earned her master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology from James Madison University in 1994. After spending 31 years in the Shenandoah Valley, she returned home to be closer to her friends and family, where she met and married the love of her life. She retired two years ago after a 27-year-long career in Speech-Language Pathology.

Although she had a long and successful career, all Kathy ever wanted to be was a mother. Her children were her pride and joy. She was passionate about sun, sand, salt water, spending time with her family, and sports, most notably Hokie football.

A Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 18, 2023, at First United Methodist Church in Hilton Village.

    So sorry for your loss. I knew Kathy from Harrisonburg and our kids were the same age. She was always present with the kids and it was obvious that she loved dearly. Always a friendly smile when we would see her in the neighborhood, at school and sporting events. Such a shock that she was taken so soon. May God comfort all of you through this extremely difficult time.

I thought about her often when she moved away from the Valley. She was kind, ethical, funny, and brilliant. I hope her family is comforted by the knowledge that she left so many lives left for the better just by knowing her.
