December 7, 1941 — March 4, 2024


Kathleen "Kathy" (Troxel) Barth, 82 of Quakertown PA, peacefully entered our Lord's arms on March 4, 2024 in the care of family.

Kathy was born in Lansdale PA, December 7, 1941 to the late Stephanie (Satek) Troxel and Wilmer Jacob Troxel.  She graduated from Lansdale Catholic High School in Lansdale, PA.  Upon graduation, she worked for Bell Telephone as a switchboard operator.  She's always loved animals and kept many horses throughout the years.

She is preceded in death by her husband of 44 years, H. Edward "Ed" Barth. After marriage, they lived in Guam while Ed served in the Airforce. They later settled in the early 1970s at their farm in Quakertown, PA where they raised their three boys. Over the years, she kept pigs, had several horses and a large garden, where she grew sweet corn, pumpkins and tomatoes. Her roadside stand was favored by all the locals, especially when it was apple cider time. 

Kathy worked for decades as a bus driver for Levy School Bus company in Trumbauersville, PA, driving special needs students. She was a long-term resident and always active in the Quakertown Community, participating in many parades with her horse, Shonie. She enjoyed traveling with her husband across the country, playing cards and yard sales. She got joy in seeing and riding trains, sharing this passion with her oldest son. She also regularly stopped by Casey's Place and Brick Tavern.
