Kathleen loved music & poetry, she even wrote some of her own songs. She loved animals, including rabbits and her dogs. When she was younger, she was an avid horse rider and loved spending time with her horses. She would ride them all through Dansville, Wayland, Cohocton and beyond. Kathleen also made beautiful "Just Married" car signs for people to celebrate their special day. Kathleen loved her family very much and enjoyed spending time with her children, even if it meant just watching television and having a beer and smoking cigarettes. Nothing brought her more joy than spending time with her beloved grandson and doting over her great-grandchildren- talking to them on the phone and always telling her family how awesome they were to her.
