Katie Danielle Richins, age 19 of Cornelia, Georgia went home to be with the Lord on Friday, August 23, 2019 following injuries she sustained in an automobile accident.
Born in Demorest, Georgia on August 21, 2000, Katie was a life-long native of Habersham County. She was generous, compassionate, and kind. Never malice or angry. Katie would meet people and instantly make new friends, regardless if you thought you needed a friend. She was a hard worker and responsible. If someone was sick, she would instinctively become the caretaker. Katie loved music, concerts, people, and especially dogs. She was a huge fan of Harry Potter and gravitated to a world where the impossible was possible. Katie loved to give hugs since she was a little girl and there was never a limit on how many given. She worked with Wendy’s in Clarkesville and was currently employed with Fred’s Discount Store and Lowe’s Home Improvement Store of Cornelia.
