Catherine L. "Kitty" Hittle DORSET Catherine Louise Hittle, known as Kitty to all, died suddenly on Monday Oct. 26th, at Albany Medical Center surrounded by her immediate family. She was 82. Born in Aberdeen, S.D., and raised in the Mitchell, S.D. area, Kitty attended Yankton College before moving to Denver where she met her husband, Dick, whose career at Conoco moved them from New Mexico to Texas and finally to Old Greenwich, Conn. where they resided from 1960 until 1995. In Old Greenwich, Kitty was an active homemaker and volunteer for many charitable activities including the Merry-Go-Round Senior Center. Her house on Hendrie Drive was renowned for being a place for gatherings of all occasions. Having a home in Dorset since 1971 and loving the community, they moved there year round in 1995. Kitty was a beloved member of the greater Dorset community where she was a significant contributor to volunteer activities.
