From an early age growing up In Camden, New Jersey, Kathy excelled in school, winning numerous honors and awards for achievement in elementary and junior high and high school; culminating with acceptance into the National Junior Honor Society.

After graduating from Germantown High School, in Philadelphia she earned a full scholarship to the Philadelphia General Hospital School of Nursing.

As a registered nurse, Kathy dedicated her life to helping others. Kathy began her career at St Elizabeth’s Hospital in Brighton, later moving to Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge and then to Winchester Hospital. Kathy finished her career distinguished career at Aberjona Nursing Center, in Winchester, working with the Alzheimer’s patients, where her care and compassion helped soothe many of her patients in their final years.

Kathy's dedication and compassion didn’t end when her work day was over. She worked tirelessly while raising 2 children, ensuring she could be there for family dinner, homework and a shoulder to lean on. In 2007 she got to share that shoulder with her granddaughter Ava. Whether playing games, telling stories, just goofing around or sharing her love of animals she treasured every moment together.

Interests were numerous; gathering with her lifelong friends, pursuing her love of reading or her love of nature and animals. When not engulfed in a thriller on her Kindle she could be found immersed in Animal Planet and National Geographic with a passion for the Orangutans and Siberian Huskies.

Her laughter, smile, compassion, understanding and support, will be deeply truly missed by all who knew her.
