In 1961 Kathleen married the love of her life, John and together for 57 years raised their three children. Kathleen loved taking walks, gardening, and spending time with family. Rockaway Beach, the Kilcar and Cape Cod were the places she loved to spend time with family. She made the most amazing Irish soda bread and made sure to bake numerous loaves on St. Patrick’s Day for family, friends and neighbors. Kathleen will be remembered for her kindness, laugh and spunky sense of humor. Most of all she will be remembered for all the love and support she gave to us. She was a strong, independent, funny lady and all who knew her are blessed with her memory.
