Ballauer, Kathleen "Kathy" Margaret (Lockwood)

Obituary

Kathleen “Kathy” Margaret (Lockwood) Ballauer of the The Colony, Texas passed away on Tuesday, November 17, 2020 at the age of 48.

Kathy was born on January 31, 1972 in Norwich, Connecticut to Thomas and Mary Lockwood.  She grew up in Dallas where she graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School and quickly entered the workforce where she developed an amazing work ethic.  Kathy worked for multiple companies before she found her true calling in the staffing industry. Most recently, Kathy proudly held the position of Regional Manager for Assist Personnel.

It was the staffing industry that provided the opportunity for her to meet her husband, Scott Ballauer. They were married on November 14, 1995 and had recently celebrated their 25th anniversary.  During her 48 years, Kathy lived in Connecticut, Houston, and Dallas where she spent the majority of her life.  Outside work, there was nothing more important to Kathy than family and friends.  She loved to spoil her nieces and nephews and did so as often as possible.  Kathy never met a stranger and made a lasting impression on each and every person that was blessed enough to meet her.

Kathy is survived by her husband, Scott; her mother, Mary Lockwood; her sister, Betty Marceaux and her husband, Josh; their 3 children: Matthew, Jacob, & Maddie; her brother, Tom Lockwood and his wife Laura; Tom’s son from a previous marriage, TJ; and her sister, Betty Silver.

Kathy is preceded in death by her father, Thomas Lockwood as well as multiple aunts, uncles, and cousins from her extended family.

Services for Kathy will be held at in the Brooks Family Chapel at the North Dallas Funeral Home at 2710 Valley View Lane, Farmers Branch, Texas 75234.  A visitation will be held from 10 am to 12:45pm on Monday, November 30, 2020.  A memorial service will be held at 1 pm on November 30, 2020.  (Due to CDC guidelines, seating will be limited for the service). Place of internment will be held at Ridgeview West Memorial Park in Frisco, Texas.

    Scott and family, I am so devastated for your loss. I will never forget the night after Mom and Dads 50th wedding anniversary when we all sat out and listened to music and had such a laugh. I only met Kathy that one night, but I thought she was a lovely soul. I hope you find some measure of peace though this terrible loss. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    We’re a star quenched on high, for years would it’s light still traveling downward from the sky shine on our mortal sight, and when a good person dies, for years beyond their kin, the light they leave behind them shines upon the paths of men.
    You were like a daughter to me and always will be in my heart.

    I was extremely saddened to learn of Kathy’s passing. I knew Kathy when she provided staffing services for our Distribution Center at Tuesday Morning. Kathy was the consummate professional in every aspect. Her dedication to her job to provide an excellent service for her clients was matched only by her caring and concern for the people she employed to provide that service. She was a friend to all and a role model for others to emulate. We have lost a truly caring person. RIP.

    I’ve never known a soul as positive, loving, cheerful, kind, inclusive and generous. Kathy’s smile would brighten any room she entered. Hard working, extremely caring, and on and on. Her absence will be tangible by all who knew her. As she used to say, “love and miss you lots!!!!!” My deepest condolences to Scott, Mary, and her entire family near and far. Until we meet again my friend.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location.

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
