Kathleen Virginia English Obituary
November 20, 1946 - February 9, 2016 Kathy English "Apple" passed away at home on February 9, 2016. She is survived by her brothers Rick and Tim, her sister Patti Chertok and her nieces Tori Goodfellow and Alexis O'Connor. She was preceded in death by her loving spouse JB Newman. Kathy not only loved her family, but over her life she created family for so many people who, for whatever reason, were remote from their own. Her generosity, love for cooking and adventure, and her desire to care for others drew people to her and to each other, like moths to a light. Her life was enriched with friendships developed through her work at BetTzedek, her enthusiastic participation in the LGBT community and her dog Barney who introduced her to her wonderful friends from the dog park. Her friends were always with her; supporting her, loving her. They are a great comfort to the family. An eternal optimist, even as her body failed her, she lived her life up to the last moment driving her convertible, making plans to travel to Alaska and enjoying the movies. A Celebration of Life will be held at her home on March 6th.
