Kathleen "Kat" Tiano passed away June 24, 2017 after a brief illness.

Kat was born August 23, 1949 in Dayton Ohio and was the second of five children born to Paul and Dorothy O'Brien.

As a highly successful senior sales executive for a major technology firm, Kat enjoyed a long and rewarding professional career. She spent a good portion of her career based in San Francisco, CA where her late husband Tony had an outstanding career in Public Broadcasting. When not passionately pursing their careers, the Tianos traveled extensively all over the world during their 40 year marriage.

Kat was preceded in death by her husband Tony Tiano; father Paul O'Brien; and older brother David O'Brien.

Kat is survived by her mother, Dorothy O'Brien (Albuquerque, NM); brothers Daniel O'Brien of Albuquerque, Sean O'Brien (Liz) of Ventura, CA; sister Megan De La O (Eloy) of Rogers, AR; stepsons A. Steven Tiano (Kelly), his son Anthony Tiano III; Mark Tiano, (Barbara) and their children Kaleigh and Spencer.

Kat inspired us all with her creative flair, zest for life, and love of the arts. She was an avid reader and bridge player to which she achieved the honor of gold life master.

Kat was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all of her family, friends, and colleagues.

Cremation has taken place in accordance with her wishes, and the family is planning a celebration of her life in August in Albuquerque.
