Notice Condolences

SULLIVAN-Kathleen Mary, born March 14th, 1964, passed away on June 3rd, 2004. She is survived by her husband Joe Montini, mother Joan Sullivan, brother James Sullivan III, a niece and three nephews Blaine Sullivan, and Haley, Patrick, and Daniel Roseen, and their respective families. Kate was the beloved sister of the late Kerry Sullivan Roseen and dear daughter of the late James Sullivan, Jr. She is loved dearly by her many friends. Kate led a full and spectacular life that spanned teaching and performing in a multitude of genres. After earning a Bachelor of Music at the University of Miami, she moved back to New York where she had grown up and taught choir and jazz vocal ensemble eight years in Bellmore Merrick High School District. She went on to get a Masters of Arts in Performance at Queens College and continued teaching part-time at the New School, New Jersey City University, and privately. Kathleen was a mezzo-soprano and performed in the chorus for numerous City Opera productions, the Gregg Smith Singers, and in many church choirs throughout New York City. Besides being very active as a classical musician, she was also a wonderful performer of contemporary music as well as a gifted actress. These talents were most notably showcased when she starred in Mikel Rouse's "Dennis Cleveland" and most recently, Phillip Johnston's "Faust." Additionally, Kate composed, arranged, and produced music. As a composer, her most recent work is "Songs For Four Voices On Poems By Edna St. Vincent Millay" recorded live in concert at Spencertown Academy, Spencertown, N.Y., in 2002. Her most recent work as a wonderful arranger and producer is a yet to be released children's recording titled, "Dance On The Planet." Kate's endless talents, wit, beauty, and friendship are unforgettable and enduring. She will be greatly missed by all who were blessed enough to know her. A celebration of Kathleen's life will be held on June 13th at her home. In lieu of flowers, Kate, Joe and the family requests that contributions be made to a college fund that Kate had set up for her sister Kerry's children when Kerry passed from the same disease. Contributions made out to Putnam Investments, and mailed to Joseph Montini in Brooklyn will be deposited and split between Haley's, Patrick's, and Daniel's fund for college.
