Katharine A. (Pawlyk) Bacon, of Horsham, died on Dec. 20 at Abington Memorial Hospital of complications stemming from pneumonia. She was 67.

She was an active member of St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Glenside for more than 40 years. In addition to volunteering at the church's thrift shop and bi-annual rummage sales, she was a caretaker of the church gardens, a soprano soloist in the choir and a member of the St. Peter's folk group. She especially enjoyed participating in the church women's dinners and annual weekend retreats.

Bacon was born in Orange, N.J. and later lived in Dayton, Ohio.

In 1964, she graduated from Cheltenham High School in Wyncote before attending Kutztown University, where she developed her creative penchant as an art major.

She retired last year from the professional cleaning service that she launched and operated.

An animal-lover, she was also a member of the Delaware Valley Amateur Astronomers Association and also enjoyed cooking as well as entertaining friends.

She is survived by her husband, Bill Bacon, with whom she recently celebrated 25 years of marriage. She is also survived by her sister, Linda Kuzynski, of Campbell Calif.

Services will be held at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Glenside on Jan. 18 at 10 a.m., with a luncheon following in the auditorium. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Katharine Bacon Fund, c/o St. Peter's Episcopal Church, 654 N. Easton Road, Glenside, PA 19038.
