Kathleen Ellen Foley
March 26, 1963 – November 1, 2020
Kathleen was born in Hollywood, California, to Patrick and Mary Foley. Her older brother, Frank, remembers bringing her home from the hospital! She lived in San Gabriel Valley since 1968 after enjoying a brief stint overseas in Ireland and England.
She never had an issue with school, graduated from San Gabriel High School, but led a troubled life as an adult. Her professional life consisted of many jobs, but mainly as an on-site apartment manager and part-time dog groomer.
Kathleen was an avid animal lover—especially cats. Later in life, she was known for being the “neighborhood cat lady.” She was also a natural at horseback riding in her younger years.
She is survived by her older brother, Frank (Meghan), her long-time companion, Bruce, her children, and her cats!
An informal memorial gathering at the beach will be planned in 2021.
In lieu of flowers, her brother asks that donations be made to the Room 8 Memorial Cat Foundation (www.room8cats.org) to assist in getting cats to new homes.
