Kathehleen was the sweetest person you ever meet in your life. She was like another grandma to me. When I was at my grandparents I would go down to her house and play video games with her grandson. I have so much good memories with her growing up. Such as going to the Amish Country. We all had a blast together. She will be missed by all of us in the family.

I have known Kathleen for nearly 40 years. I practically lived at her house growing up. She treated me just like a daughter, so I started calling her my 2nd Mom. Our families would take many vacations together which led to so many good memories that i will always remember. She made absolutely the best spaghetti and i was never late for dinner during those meals. She was truly an inspiration and a wonderfull mother, person to so many. She will be missed, but will always be in our hearts.

I loved Kathleen. We had many talks together and I loved everyone of them. We had lunches together and they were so good. We watched over each other’s homes daily. I enjoyed all our many phone conversations over the years. She was very intelligent and a joy to be around. She was a special person. My only regret is that I don’t get to personally say goodbye.

I always felt comfortable with your mom. She took all of us as family not just Danny. I remember taking Tiffany and Juanita to her house after they where born and she celebrated them as if she had known me for ever. Kathleen will be deeply loved and missed by me my 💔 for you all. And I love you all. PS let's not forget that she raised the best daughter.
