Kathryn A. Rusiecki

SALEM, Ore. - Kathryn A. (Levin) Rusiecki, 69, passed away on Aug. 14, 2018, in Salem, Oregon, after a valiant battle with vascular dementia.
Kathy had a long career at the Internal Revenue Service which she enjoyed immensely. She spent her early career as an auditor, traveling the countryside of rural Vermont. She enjoyed meeting new people, despite her job title, and quickly moved up the ranks. Throughout her nearly 40-year career, she made numerous contributions to the IRS and had many accomplishments, including the commissioner's award. She was able to travel the U.S. and work in many cities, including Denver, Boise, Bozeman, Salt Lake City and Dallas.
Kathy shared a lifelong love of horses with her daughter and after retirement to Park City, she became an enthusiastic walker and a devoted nana to her grandson.
Kathy was an avid reader of mystery novels, a Red Sox and New England Patriots fan, an accomplished knitter and a proud Vermonter. However, family was always the most important thing to her.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Elizabeth S. Levin, and her father, Samuel G. Levin.
She leaves behind her daughter, Karen Rusiecki Blake, son-in-law, Nicholas William Blake, and beloved grandson, Lochlan Christopher Blake; her ex-husband, Karl J. Rusiecki, and his son; her older brother and his wife, Samuel and Patricia Levin, their children Kip and Kim Levin, Matthew and April Levin, and Michael and Tehani Levin; her younger brother, Peter Levin, his children Heather and Seth McCoy, and Todd and Carrie Levin. She also leaves her cherished great-nephews and -nieces Sophie, Alex, Henry, Gus, Mila, Addie and Eliza; as well as her cousins Elin Haugen, John Morris, Susan Coulter and Jack Keech.
Please join us for a memorial service at 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 27 at All Souls Interfaith Gathering in Shelburne, Vermont, to celebrate and commemorate Kathy's life, with reception to follow.
