During her career, she worked for the state of Rhode Island and in many healthcare positions over her lifetime. Kathy was a pivotal member of the RI Association of Handicap Citizens, working to make a change and difference for Rhode Island handicapped children. Kathy lived her adult life caring for her children as a homemaker and nursing care assistant. Along with her husband, she was an advocate to improve her own handicapped sons quality of life. She enjoyed crafts, sewing and spending many hours with her pet dogs and cats. One of her greatest passions was “going for a ride for ice cream”, stopping for coffee milk at Cumberland Farms and countless late evening hours on the phone with her best friend, Karen. She was not a traveler, but enjoyed a couple of trips to Hawaii to visit her daughter.
