Kathleen Schroader Pierce,91, of Sparta, TN passed away Saturday, September 26, 2020 in Sparta, TN. Kathleen was born on January 2, 1929 in Chicago Heights, IL to the late Owen Lee and Amanda E. Peach Schroader.

As a young girl in IL, she went to school through part of the 11th grade, when she had to stop to go to work cleaning delivery rooms at St. James Hospital in Chicago Heights, IL. In 1981, at the age of 52, in the same year her youngest granddaughter graduated high school, she too completed her education to receive her high school diploma.

Throughout 54 years of marriage to her husband, Henry Harris Pierce, Jr. she assisted him in several business he operated, in various ways. She also remained primarily a stay at home mother for her children, keeping a great home which was often filled with guests to which she was a wonderful hostess. If you walked in her door, you were going to be fed in abundance.

In October 1952 she was baptized into the Jehovah’s Witness faith, where she served faithfully until her death. It was in efforts to grow the Jehovah’s Witness congregation that the whole family packed up and moved to Sparta, TN from IL in November 1971. She always said Sparta was the place she loved the most. In 1981, she moved to Rutherford County, TN where she lived until she moved back to Sparta, TN three years ago, with her daughter.

Kathleen had four children- Rose Alice Pierce Ullom of Murfreesboro, Steven Harris Pierce, Michael Warren Pierce and Bonnie Lee Pierce Boyd (Tim) of Sparta, TN.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, her sons Steven and Michael, her two grandsons Ross Ullom and David Irvin, Jr., her brothers Elbert Schroader and Donald Schroader and her sister Hilda McCullough Hughes.

Survivors include: Daughters, Rose and Bonnie, Brother, Glen Schroader (Don) of Indiana, Sister, Ilene Hermann Klein (Bill) of IL, Sisters-in-law, Cheryl Pierce of KY, and Billie Bednarczyk of IL. Grandchildren, Leah Ullom of Murfreesboro, TN, Eric (Sharon) Pierce of Sparta, TN, Kellye (Ken) Pierce Millrany of Tullahoma, TN, Jennifer (Dan) Pierce Leeds of Sparta, TN, Krystal Pierce of Nashville, TN, Alicia (Marari) Pierce Belin of Nashville, TN, Jessica (Jared) Unger and Brittany Irvin, of Murfreesboro, TN. She also had 14 great-grandchildren and one great-great grandchild and numerous nieces and nephews.

It was Kathleen’s wish that there be no services.
