In 1996, she started a new life for her family in the country. She enjoyed caring for the cats and cows on the ranch and absolutely loved the simpler life.
Kathleen was the epitome of a kind hearted soul and loved getting to know every single person she met along her journey. She held Christmas in her heart throughout the year, still believed in Santa Claus and like him, shared unconditional love and generosity with everyone she met.
With a heart of gold and the luck of the Irish, her favorite pastimes were meeting up with friends at Bingo, spending quality time with family, reading a good mystery, and delving into family history. She loved the rocky New England coast, all animals, children, her Mobo the horse, and was truly young at heart.
