A shooting star that never burns out is the best way to describe Kathy. Full of life Going the Distance never stopping and never hitting a wall that she could not climb over. She was always laughing and joking and saying things that make you laugh until you almost feel like you're going to pee your pants. She was always someone I could count on. From being pregnant at the same time to playing co-ed softball together and time would slowly drift us apart , but always kept connected she will always be missed and never forgotten. To your children Kathy, my heart breaks for them I pray that God fills your hearts with peace and understanding in this time of great sorrow and confusion. I know that in this time you have felt the great love of friendship that your mother has been blessed to have over these years. I can't imagine the questions that you may have but remember to take them to God take your time and cry and mourn but do not let this take life from you. I know your mother is with you , she's rooting for you in this time of struggle and she is there always as you grow in life I know that you can hear her with wisdom and funny things that she has said over the years. So remember the good things and cherish every moment that you ever had. May God bless you

I knew Kathy since sometime in highschool 1986/87ish? As a young adult I routinely would get kicked out of the house, (as my parents just Loved practicing tough love!) Kathy's family loved taking in strays 😉 so I found a second home whenever I needed. 💓 So many memories.. 1 of my favorites: driving to Florida w/ her & our friend Jennifer M. (she did most of the driving because she actually liked it🤷) We had a blast! Not only that but I remember she had a few guy friends from some plow company in Westford & they even let her drive her own HUGE rig & plow the highways with them.. she was a rugged one that girl!! I just remember always laughing so much, she was so much fun. I could go on & on really... but most importantly she was loved beyond measure... God how I wish I had made it up to Texas to hang w/ her & her family.. my biggest regret. I love you to the moon and back K!!!!! Always 💓💔💓 & to her kids I'm praying big time for you .. sending prayers of love, comfort and strength through this extremely difficult time.. may God provide everything you need to get through this. 💓

I can’t say enough how genuine and beautiful this woman was. Every time I came to her home she treated my family and I like her own, bought my kids gifts on holidays and was always there when you needed her. I’ll never forget the time playing water volleyball and you and Shannon kicked Our butts, the endless pool games the endless memories. I will never be able to drive past a McDonald’s and not Think about you and your fraps. I will forever cherish you Kathy I love you beautiful rest easy.

I met Kathy about 18 years ago. We had mutual friends and I was needing someone to take care of my two small children while my husband was deployed so I could work. We instantly became great friends and she and her kids were like family to us. She was an amazing mother and an amazing lady. I will always remember her Boston accent and straight forward attitude where she told you like it was, especially when you needed to hear it the most. My heart breaks for her children whom she adored more then anything. RIP lady. We will all always miss you.

I hope her children know, that anytime she spoke about them she lit up! She had so much pride, love, and compassion for them.
My heart breaks for them.
Prayers always.
