“Kathy” Obituary

Mackey- Kathryn “Kathy” Johnston Mackey, age 62, of Jacksonville, Florida passed away on February 10, 2024, in Jacksonville, Florida. Kathy was born in Fairhope, Alabama on February 1, 1962 to the late Manon Johnston, Jr., and Ann Crozier Johnston. Kathy and her family relocated to Jacksonville, Florida when she was young. She graduated from Nathan B. Forrest High School in 1980 and shortly after she earned an AA degree in Business from Florida Community College of Jacksonville. In 1985, Kathy started working at Jacksonville Transportation Authority as a Payroll Supervisor. While at work, she met the love of her life, Samuel Douglas Mackey, Jr., and they were happily married on May 6, 1989. Kathy was a devoted wife, mother, sister and friend who loved her family dearly. After dedicating nearly 13 years at JTA she started her employment at Cypress Truck Line where she has served since 1998. In her younger years Kathy and her family would take trips to Lake Weir over the summer where they had a vacation home. She loved the outdoors, being on the lake and more recently enjoyed making memories at Kingsley Lake in Starke, Florida. She attended Shindler Drive Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida, where she enjoyed worshipping her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Kathy also enjoyed reading and traveling; but more than anything, Kathy was passionate about her daughters, her dogs, spending time with family, and making sweet memories with those she cherished. She was a true treasure and will be missed by all who knew her. Kathy was preceded in death by her parents and loving husband of nearly 33 years, Samuel Douglas Mackey, Jr.

Kathy is survived by her daughters, Haley Mackey of Jacksonville, FL and Kimberly (Travis) Duncan of Starke, FL; brothers, Eddie (Debi) Johnston of Jacksonville, FL and Jimmy (Theresa) Johnston of Middleburg, FL; numerous extended family members and friends.
