Kathleen was a lovely person to have as a cousin & departed this world far too soon. She is now at peace with no more suffering. Our thoughts are with all the family at this sad time. Love to you all from the family here in England.

I'm Aunty Jean May living in Shropshire, England. I came to Connecticut in 1972 with my sister Winnie and her son Barry to spend some time with our big sis Florrie and her family. It was lovely meeting the USA branch of the May family ! Myself and Uncle Bill in Bristol, England ( the last 2 of 14 siblings) send our sincere condolences to Linwood and all of dear Kathy's family.

Kath was my first cousin and help her mum to call my mum vertically every Sunday. When Florence passed Kath carried on the tradition. My mum always looked forward to kathys calls and letters, cards etc. Kathy always kept us up to date on family events and we the same.
I will not forget kathys quirky sense of humid and her concern for her British relatives, I will miss her support and encouragement.
Sleep well cousin you deserve it, go to your family up above and enjoy the shingdig that's is awaiting you. Till we meet again good night cousin, will be thinking of you alwayd, miss you.😟
