Kathy married William Lavoie in 1987 at St. Malachy’s Church in Sherburne, NY. Together they raised a family who supported and loved one another, enjoyed years of family vacations, sporting events, family dinners, and lots of laughs – especially Scott’s boisterous and contagious laugh.

Kathy’s strong will, determination, and love of life, inspired her to live each day to the fullest. She endured the most painful years of her life in recent past, but continued to find joy in friends, family, and most recently with her husband Jeff. In their brief time together they traveled, enjoyed pool parties with friends, and long rides on their Harley.
