Kathleen was born and raised in Marine Park, Brooklyn, NY, attended Good Shepherd School, and Saint Edmunds High School, raised her loving family in Parlin, NJ, before moving to Holmdel, NJ, 20 years ago.

She was an active parishioner of the Church of St. Catharine, Holmdel and a member of Beacon Hill Country Club in Atlantic Highlands.
Kathleen had a deep commitment and love for her special needs son and daughter in-law. She gave herself selflessly her entire life and always offered help to those in need. She laughed and loved like no other and celebrated birthdays, holidays and milestones with gusto. Her great joy was spending time with her family and friends in Woodloch Springs PA, Belmar NJ, Redington Shores and Naples FL. She leaves us with the best memories of a life well lived and a family well loved.
