Sorry for you loss. Kathy was such a caring and wonderful person. I knew her from Allen Bradley (Rockwell Automation). She will be missed but not forgotten.

My best memories of Kathy are our camping days together in Door County that grew into a group of about 50 Allen-Bradley people. Later the group would cross country ski in Sister Bay. We were a wild and crazy gang. I will try to connect with this group. Jim, Kathy and I rescued a HUGE Golden Retriever from you and we found him a great home with a boy with special needs. Barney was a dog that…oh well no words to describe him 🙂 I’ll never forget him jumping in the bath tub with me. Kathy shared many of your Mother’s recipes with me. I make the vinegar and oil salad dressing all the time. I still can not peel mushrooms like your Mom did. I know that Kathy truly loved all of you. As i write this I smile. I have way too many wonderful memories to put into words. Kathy is a great lady!!!! Hugs, Pattie Curtis, 414-269-7342, pattielc7@gmail.com

I will always remember how she graciously adopted me into the Dooley family as a full-fledged member! That always meant so very much to me. Kathy was kind in spirit and generous to a fault. I can’t remember one time when she put herself before others, even when she was sick. She was always so concerned about inconveniencing others. She was one of the kindest, gentlest, most giving and compassionate people I’ve had the joy of knowing. I’ll miss you so much, dear “Sister-by-Heart” and will love you forever. Rest in the peace you are so deserving of.

I am so very sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful person. She was a tremendous help to me when I worked at Rockwell. She always had a smile for you and went out of her way to cheer you up.
