Born in Gadsden, Alabama, Kathleen moved to Decatur, Georgia as a young girl and the third child in a family of seven.  Meeting and marrying her husband Bill Peacock in the late '80s, her home had been in Jonesboro since that time.

Having a life-long passion for quilting after being taught how to quilt by her grandmother, Kathleen produced many, many gorgeous quilts throughout her life and was very involved in the quilting community in Clayton County and throughout Georgia.  She was the first president of the Busy Needles Quilt Guild and active member and previous office holder in the Tara Quilt Guild, Helpful Friends Quilt Guild, and Timeless Stitchers Quilt Guild.  She was involved through the guilds with fund raising for the Humane Society and with Quilts of Valor, an organization providing quilts to military members.  Kathleen was pleased and proud to have been selected to be part of The Georgia Quilt Project for the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia.  Her quilt was presented to the Olympic Flag Bearer from Poland.

Kathleen was preceded in death by her loving husband of 34 years, William C. Peacock, III; parents, William Enix Rudd and Mary Kathryn Wall Rudd; sister, Anna Lee Martin; brothers, William David Rudd, John Edward Rudd, Walter Jefferson Rudd; stepson, William C. Peacock, IV; and nephew, William Paul Rudd.  She is survived by her sons, Benjamin Ross Adams (Cynthia) of Plant City, Florida, and William Joseph Peacock (Abie) of the Atlanta area; daughter, Virginia Lee Hall (Jon) recently of Mount Dora, Florida; sisters, Mary Virginia Pratt (Chris) of Petaluma, California, and Venita Gail Rudd of Alto, Georgia; grandchildren, Connery Vincent Hall and Enix Scott Peacock.  Kathleen is also survived by stepchildren, Robert E. (Pennie) Peacock and Barbara Jean Piecinsky; step-grandchildren, John, Robbie, and Greg (Lindsay) Peacock, Jena Merchant Powell (Andrew), Raven Piecinsky Perry, and Chamberlin and Dakota Piencsky; nieces, Mary Sokolowsky (Michael) of Gainesville, and Amy Cortez of Cornelia; nephews, John Rudd (Jennifer) of Statham, and Cody Broome (Aarien) of Lula.
