Kate Pelosi Obituary
Kate Boucher Pelosi, aged 37, passed away on October 5, 2018 from complications due to ALS. She was on this earth for far too short a time and will be profoundly missed by her family and large group of friends. She leaves behind her adored husband and best friend, Chris Pelosi, and their cherished son, Logan, who was the focus of their life. She is survived by her loving parents, Dorise and Joan Boucher, a brother and sister-in-law, Philip and Christina Boucher and their son, Blake, also, a brother-in-law, Gary Pelosi, and his wife, Iris. She also leaves behind her mother-in-law Lucy Pelosi who introduced her to the feast of seven fishes on Christmas Eve. In addition, Kate is survived by many aunts, uncles, and cousins and a very special group of girls who were such a big part of her life. A special thanks to Aunt Gail who was a tremendous help to the family. Kate specialized in tort law and was recently employed at Ryan, Ryan, Deluca in Hartford. Her honed writing and argumentative skills allowed her to have a very successful and enjoyable career. Kate grew up in Meriden, CT attending local schools. It was a community project in fifth grade in which she was the lawyer for her class that planted the seeds for her future vocation. That and, of course, her ability to always win an argument. Kate reluctantly followed her family to Berlin, CT when she was in high school. It was there that she cemented her friendships for life. She could be found driving around town in "Tipsy" the Tracker blasting 90's rap music. Kate enjoyed playing sports especially hockey with the Middlesex Red Devils. Kate attended Syracuse University and graduated cum laude. From there she went on to Quinnipiac School of Law and graduated with a juris doctorate magna cum laude. Kate made every holiday so special for her family. Her house was always beautifully decorated with the many treasures she would search endlessly for online. Kate's favorite holidays were Halloween and Christmas. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow easily became one of Logan's favorite spooky tales. Kate always insisted on picking out the perfect Christmas tree every year and wasn't happy unless every inch of the tree was covered with ornaments and lights. She knew the movie Home Alone by heart and it was a favorite of the Pelosi family. Chris and Kate's annual Christmas party was a highly anticipated annual event, as was their Fourth of July picnic. You could always count on family, friends, good food, drink, and tons of fun for kids. Autumn was Kate's favorite season of the year. She attended as many fairs as she possibly could with her family and eagerly looked forward to decorating her house with the colors of fall. Kate was a genuine history and politics buff. Kate eagerly followed the goings on in today's political scene and was an avid watcher of the Sunday morning news programs and Deadline White House. She had a thirst for knowledge and a passion for reading. Kate was a voracious reader and she set herself a goal of reading all the classics after law school. Kate had a larger than life presence and could light up a room with her smile. She would be the first one to take charge of a situation and find a solution. Kate was more than happy to be the "Dear Abby" among her friends. They would seek her advice on all matters great and small. She was the alpha wolf in her pack. A special thanks to Lisa for always being there. It has been a long and at times difficult four years watching someone you love so deeply succumb to the ravages of a disease so horrible. Faced with these challenges that few could endure, Kate persevered. It was always Kate's strength that helped us through. She never once complained or felt sorry for herself. She faced each day with the determination to spend every minute happily sharing life with family and friends. A funeral mass will be held on Friday at ten o'clock at St. Paul's Church, Kensington, CT. followed by a reception. Online condolences can be made at www.maioranofuneralhome.com. Donations in her honor may be made to the ALS Association in the hopes that a cure may someday be found.
