I am so grateful to have known Kathy and to call her my friend. My deepest condolences to your wonderful family.
I am a much better person today for having Kathy in my life... She was special in so many ways: inspirational, caring, kind, funny, smart and insightful... Just to name a few. Kathy was such a thoughtful soul and I will miss her beyond words. Clearly the best type of human being.

My dear friend and colleague, thank you for being who you are. I will hold you in my heart in both difficult and joyful times... And always always always when I see, smell or taste apple pie.

Much love,
Peter Tatarian

My deepest and most heartfelt condolences to Kathy's beloved family. You were her world and I'm sure she was yours!

I met Kathy many years ago at St. Luke's when she was part of our IT Team for the conversion of their Pharmacy System from paper to Meditech's electronic version. She was such a pleasure to work with, not only as a colleague but then as a friend.

Kathy was an inspiration and a friend to all who crossed her path. She lived sharing so much of herself to anyone who needed it. She was an angel here on earth and now an angel in heaven with those that went before her. She will forever be missed and thought of lovingly and will always be with you in your heart! 💔

Uncle Bobby aka Big Cat will certainly be welcoming you with open arms! I will always remember going shopping at Silverstine’s with him to get the perfect Christmas gift for you. We ended up picking out an Icelandic sweater and had lunch at TK O’Malley’s after. You were the apple of his eye! I will always remember you as such a kind person with a beautiful smile who made the best cookies and were so strong and brave!

I saw this and thought of you,

God saw you were getting tired, And a cure was not to be,
So he put his arms around you, And whispered, "Come to Me."
With tearful eyes we watched you, And saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.


I hope you’re enjoying some sun in Aruba pain free! Until we meet again ❤️

Photo was from my wedding 9/26/09

Sending big hugs and lots of love to the family. Praying you find comfort in all of the wonderful memories you shared

You always had a smile on your face when ever I saw you at work. What beautiful faith you had in each new day. God saw you were tired and called you home. May you Rest In Peace. You will be missed ❤️

My sympathy to your entire family. I grew up on North Front St on the corner of Phillips Ave , just up the street from your mom and dad and at that time there were four children in the family before moving to the South End. I adored your family, especially your mother. I would hang clothes on the line for her and babysit occasionally.. bake spice cake and lemon filled cupcakes. I heard Kathy had been ill for many years . My heart breaks . May the memories of your sister shine bright in your hearts forever. Deborah Amaral .. I am so sorry for your loss.
