Kathie was born in Greece, NY and started kindergarten in Fairport before moving to Hilton in 1959 to start middle school, until graduation in 1966. She moved out to Southern California in the late seventies before moving up into Northern California for a few years. She decided that she liked warm weather better. In the late 80’s Denver, Colorado beckoned her to its mountains. So it was here that she got a CDL and started to travel all over the United States. It was hard work, but thought awe heck I’m only 50! Due to a much needed Hip replacement, the work did become too difficult. So she got a job with the Post Office where she would drive from town to town to just drop off and pick up bags of mail, which included some items which needed special attention like livestock, (baby chicks) insects, reptiles, for Zoo’s or science research, and yes sometimes human remains. I asked her didn’t that bother her and her response was no because they didn’t talk back or complain about her driving. LOL. By 2003 and feeling homesick she moved back to NY and eventually settled in Hilton, which always was and forever will be “home”. Late April of this year we found out she had stage 4 Esophageal cancer. The cancer had already spread to other organs as well.
Kathie will be buried at Parma Union Cemetery. Per her wishes there will be no prior calling hours. A private burial for immediate family only at a later date. Anyone wishing to make a donation please do so to a charity of your choice.
