Dear Kathy will be missed by so many of her loving friends, her brothers, and nieces and nephews. I enjoyed my trip to Ireland with Kathy. She was fun loving and the life of the party when we traveled together. Always smiling and laughing ,Kathy was great company.
She will be forever remembered in my heart.

My sympathy goes to John, Edward and family due to the sudden and unexpected passing of Kathy. My heart ached when I learned of the passing of my dear friend. I have so many loving and fun memories of Kathy from our Cape Cod days and beyond. Kathy had an affectious personality and made everyone smile whenever in their presence. I am so glad that I spent time with her in Florida in 2018 and we had a wonderful time. We last spoke in June, 2019 and I will miss her forever. I love you, Kathy- you will be forever missed.

Love- Lesley Radcliffe, Falmouth, MA
