I am so sorry for your loss! Kathy was a guardian angel for our family, she watched our two kids when they were young. We cherish our memories of her!
Thank you very much ❤️
Kathy was a beautiful soul and a wonderful CCD teacher for years for St. Agatha and Holy Redeemer. She made a difference in the lives of hundreds of children preparing for their First Holy Communion. Rest in peace, Kathy! You will be missed!
When I was driving alone there were only two people that could give me grief and peace at the same time, my wife and my mother and how I will miss calling her to hear her say,” Rob that is not being Christ like.”
Cathy was a wonderful neighbor, always a hello when she saw us.
We are so sorry for your loss, our thoughts and prayers are
With you all. Cathy will be missed.
