Katie Anne Castaldi, 31, of Sadsburyville, passed away tragically on Tuesday, March 4, 2014, due to injuries sustained in a car accident.

Growing up, Katie enjoyed Softball, Cheerleading and Dance. She was a 2000 graduate of Downingtown High School and the Center for Arts and Technology – School of Cosmetology, then went on to receive her Bachelor's Degree in Communications from Temple University in 2005.
She was a Master Stylist with Ultimate Image in Jeffersonville, working with the company for over 15 years. She had an infatuation with hair, make-up, and skin care and enjoyed sharing her passion with those she taught and trained in the salon. She had a professional, yet extraordinary relationship with her clients and loved making other's look and feel beautiful.
Katie was a hard worker and lived by the motto, 'work hard, play hard'. She was enthralled with fashion, clothes, and shoes, loved to travel, go to Phillies games and spending time with her family, friends, and pitbull, Capone.
She was stunningly beautiful, both inside and out. She was known for her smile that could light up a room and personality and essence that just drew you in.
