Bellville Times
 
Katherine Neville Remmert Floyd, 36, of Stephenville, Texas, a manager of
the Rocking M. Horse Ranch in Morgan Mill, Texas, died Tuesday, June 20,
2006, at a Dallas hospital from injuries sustained in a train truck
collision in Tioga, Texas on Jan. 20, 2006.
Services were 1 p.m. Saturday, June 24, 2006, at Lacy Funeral Home Chapel in
Stephenville with the Rev. Gary Ward officiating, assisted by Rev. Charles
Higgs. Burial was at Oak Dale Cemetery. Visitation was 6-8 p.m. Friday, June
23, 2006, at Lacy Funeral Home.
She had so much Try and so much Heart, but the injuries proved to be too
severe for her to overcome.
She will be greatly missed and mourned by her husband of six years, Toby
Floyd of Stephen-ville; parents, Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Remmert of Bellville;
brother and sister-in-law, Christian and Kim Remmert of Houston; a daughter,
Cierra Floyd of Burleson, Texas; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Douglas
and Cynthia Floyd of Seagraves, Texas; aunts, uncles, many cousins, and a
host of very dear friends, both human and animal, especially her Buckskin
horse, Monte and her three legged cat, Hop-a-Long.
Katherine was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs.
Duncan Kemp of Amite, La. and her paternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Edward
Remmert of Bellville.
Katherine was born to Bruce and Neville (Kemp) Remmert on May 1, 1970, in
Houston. She was raised in Houston and graduated from Robert E. Lee High
School, graduating in 1988.
She was a very proud Aggie, graduating from Texas A&M with a degree in
Agricultural Economics in 1992. While at A&M, she was a member of Kappa
Alpha Theta Social Sorority, The Saddle and Sirloin Club, and rode with the
polo team her freshman year.
Katherine was a very beautiful person, both physically and spiritually. Her
smile could light up a room and her kind and loving heart drew everyone to
her. Her kind heart led her to rescue many abandoned and injured animals,
treating their injuries, nutering them, and finding them a home, if not
hers, all at her expense. She was truly a very unique individual who added
so very much to this world.
At the time of her death, she was living her life-long dream of working with
horses as the Ranch Manager of the horse operation at the Rockin╣ M Peruvian
Paso Ranch in Stephenville, owned by Mr. and Mrs. Mike Mewhinney who gave
Katherine the freedom to expand her talents in this area. She bred, trained,
and showed many champion horses at shows over the country and had developed
quite a reputation as an accomplished rider and trainer.
She was the featured Expert of the Month in ranch management in the recent
issue of the magazine, │Peruvian Classified.▓
She was also well known on the barrel circuit in central Texas with her
Buckskin, her beloved Monte.
Besides her own job, Katherine worked with her husband in their company,
Floyd Performance Stock, developing through genetics their own individual
strain of bucking bulls, whose reputations had also begun to grow. Katherine
also solicited food and funds for abandoned horses after Hurricane Katrina.
