Kathleen was the perfect mother. Her soul is now at rest after a long year of suffering. She was the pillar of the family and prioritized her son Dillon and brother Marty over everything. Kathy worked her whole life to provide a great and opportunity filled life for her only son. He never wanted for anything thanks to her.
As an active member of the Saint Rose of Lima Parrish. Kathy always kept her faith as a local point of her life and lived it accordingly.
Her love for shopping was unmatched. She could always find what she was looking for and find it for a deal.
She impacted her only son’s life in s many way. She was always there no matter what, and always made the hard sacrifices that a single parent had to face. Kathy took on every challenge she endured over her 65 years of life with a special type of grace and a rugged tenacity that was apparent in anything she did; beating two brain surgeries and a spinal surgery, all because she knew she needed to be there for the family.
Kathy was the perfect example of a superwoman; ambitious, hardworking, caring, and intelligent mother who did everything in her power to provide the best quality of life for her family and friends. The impact she made on so many people’s lives is a testament to the fact that she truly cared about others and was always willing to help no matter the circumstances. Her memory will live on in all the friends and family she’s shared her light with throughout her life. She is now at peace with her father and mother, no longer suffering or wanting for anything, she is now happy.
