There are many things that could be said about her, kind, caring, and compassionate. She used to love her monthly lunches not only with her sisters but her family and friends. Kathleen also loved the visits from her sisters, the laughs and the fun they had made everyone around them smile. She used to love going for car rides and looking at all the scenery. When she was 94, she was able to go to one of the last fireworks that we could get her out to. She absolutely enjoyed every bit of it. One of her greatest joys was playing card games with her great grandbabies, Gabriella and Hunter, Uno to goldfish you name it, she loved it. The smile she had on her face every time she won was worth everything, even though we always thought she was cheating. She always looked forward to their visits and spending time with them no matter what they did together. She always looked forward to all the phone calls and facetiming she did with her children who lived out of state. Kathy really enjoyed the mysterious flowers that would show up from time to time.
We want to give a special thank you to Ed from Hearts Content Assistant Living. He not only made her laugh every single day with his funny antics, he showed her so much care and compassion, not only to her but to all his residents. There is not enough thank yous to give him, and all his employees (Jessa, Sally, Shelly, Makayla, Tara, Trishelle and Joanne) for all they did for her! They became like family. Also, a big thank you to the hospice company, PCP, and Amanda Butcher of Careline who made her last days comfortable! We would also like to thank AND waiver program that helped grandma with her stay. She truly was an amazing woman at 95. You wouldn't believe she was even that old. She made such an impact on everyone's life. She will be greatly missed.
