Kathryn Rogers Hilliard was born to Nelson and Ruth Rogers on January 14, 1929. However, due to a lengthy illness her mother's life ended at an early age and she was raised by her eldest sister Minnie Rogers Carter. Kathryn's childhood was centered in the heart of both the Wheatsville and Clarksville communities of Austin, Texas. She attended parochial school in San Antonio, Texas and later attended Austin public schools.

She is preceded in death by both parents, sisters Minnie Rogers Carter, Beatrice Goodrich, brother James Barrow, daughters Diane Hilliard and Katheryn Traylor, son Dave Horace Hilliard, grandchildren Zachary Hilliard and Amber Hilliard.

Kathryn's childhood was God filled and she accepted Christ at an early age. She was a faithful and loyal member of Loyalty Missionary Baptist Church. Her Christian walk was established from an "old school" foundation. She loved her church and would always make sure that her tithes were paid even if she was not in attendance on 1st Sunday mornings. Kathryn was affectionately known as Other Momma to so many and was a loving and devoted mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and a friend to all she met. No one was a stranger to her. Kathryn loved and cherished the relationship she had with her family and her heart was so genuine. If she made you a promise you could rest assure she would honor her word.

Other Momma's gentleness and nurturing spirit was indescribable. She was a mother to all who knew her and she loved her deceased sister Beatrice's children Minnie, Nathaniel, James, Kenneth, Leonard and Joseph as her own. For every holiday she made it a point to make sure they were never forgotten. Our beloved Other Momma loved her family and children, she was a devoted mother and her commitment was exemplified as she stayed by her daughter Katheryn's bedside throughout her illness until the very end, steadfast and unmovable. Though tiny in stature she was a giant full of grace.

God called Kathryn Home on July 10, 2011 and even though our hearts are heavy with questions of why, He knew her work here on this earth was finished. So, she answered His call to receive her just reward. We will always love Other Momma and her spirit will forever be in our hearts.

Kathryn's memories are cherished by her two daughters Shaunder Johnson, Sylvia Williams, son in-law James Howard Traylor, Sr.; grandchildren James H. Traylor, Jr. (Danye), Cedric Traylor, Jacqueline Traylor, Leslie Traylor, Renata Traylor, Kim Traylor, Tonya Traylor and, James E. Traylor, Rochelle Hilliard, Felicia Hilliard, Chemeron Malone, John Mason, Christopher Mason, 15 grand children, 32 great grandchildren; niece Minnie Brown; nephews Nathaniel Robinson, James Robinson, Kenneth Robinson, Leonard Goodrich, Joseph Goodrich; 11 great nieces and nephews; her sisters Anna Warren and Nancy Jones and a multitude of family members and so many friends.
