March 6, 1970 - February 16, 2016 Kathryn Pazuk Naficy, 45, of Pacific Palisades passed away after a three-year long battle with pancreatic cancer on Tuesday, February 16, 2016. Kathryn was born in Philadelphia, PA to Beverly and Stephen Pazuk and grew up in Marblehead, MA. Kathryn was a graduate of Tower School in Marblehead, MA and Northfield Mount Hermon School, in Mount Hermon, MA. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA and a dual MBA/MIB from Pepperdine University's Graziodio School of Business. Kathryn was married to the love of her life Sam Naficy, and together they made two beautiful children, Nikki Alexis and Kamran Stephen who made her soul complete. Kathryn was a proud member of the Junior League of Los Angeles, the Juniors of Social Service and the Los Angeles Spinsters. She was an ardent supporter and volunteer with multiple organizations including Phase One, Village School and Regis House, to name a few. Kathryn is survived by her husband, Sam, her children Nikki and Kamran, her parents Beverly and Stephen and her sister Cynthia Pazuk. We will always remember her smile, her warmth, her energy, her love for life, family and friends. Kathryn never walked away from a challenge and giving up was not in her nature. She worked hard all her life, up until the very end and made a difference in the lives of so many. Her greatest success was her beloved family and friends and her ability to make each and every day precious to those she loved.
