Kathy was an avid Boston sports fan!  Although she lived in Arizona, her love for Bruins, Patriots and Red Sox was unfounded. She enjoyed her daily 5 mile walk through the hot deserts of Scottsdale always wearing one of her Red Sox hats to keep from sun burning.   Taking in the AAA baseball games with her “work friends”, and bowling with the gang in AZ.  Most importantly Her long time love the Kansas City Royals finally won the world series… She was energetic, and sassy, never losing her “Dorchester Edge”, and always thought of others before herself.   Kathy’s love of family and friends gave her life meaning.  Her brother and sisters and nieces and nephews filled her life with love,  She was most proud of her lifelong friendship with grade school friends, Vida, Annette, Meg, and Debbie, and her Arizona friends Diana, Nancy, Joshua, and Rene and many more.   She will be missed immensely. .
