The second of eight children, she was a loving mother committed to her husband and children, and she worked as the Compliance Manager of the Public Utility Facility for the City of Virginia Beach. She attended Chico State College in California, graduating with a degree in Civil Engineering. She was widely respected in her field, and was a strong advocate for women pursuing careers in engineering. Kate was a person who always put others before herself. She was President of the Pembroke Meadows Civic League, a dedicated and enthusiastic member of St Gregory The Great Catholic Church, the announcer for the Pembroke Marlin swim team, and actively supported the Little Sisters of the Poor, a Catholic organization that offers the neediest elderly of every race and religion a home where they will be welcomed. Katherine was predeceased by her father Bob Lusich, grandmothers, Suzanne Dandy and Dorthy Lusich and her father-in-law, Captain William Fred Nixon.Left to cherish her memory are her husband Jason; children Morgan Katherine, Madilyn Alexis and MacKenize Marie; her grandfather, James F. Dandy; her mother Julie Dandy, brothers Paul, Matthew, Daniel and Philip; and sisters Suzanne, Nancy and Caroline, as well as innumerable nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts, cousins and close friends. A Wake Service will be held at 7PM on Wednesday June 5 at St. Gregory the Great Catholic Church 5345 Virginia Beach Blvd, Virginia Beach, VA 23462. A funeral Mass will be held at the church 11 AM, Thursday June 6.

Jason, though I haven't seen you since you were s boy, and never had the joy of knowing your Kate, I am saddened by your loss. My prayers for you today are that God the heavenly Father will give you comfort and strength. Your dad and I are 1st cousins so that would make you family!

I worked with Kate in Public Utilities. She and I were on the EWEE committee together. She was always wonderful to work with and to talk to. She was very giving and kind. I will miss her greatly. My condolences to her family.

Kate was bigger than life! She was so full of love. We walked into work from the parking lot almost everyday and I would ask her about her husband Jason and her children. As an engineer, she knew her trade and knew it well. She was like the little sister I never had as I am one of four boys. I pray that the Lord will comfort the whole family in this time. She was an extraordinary person, one that comes along not very often in ones life. I am her for you praying and trying to cope as best I can. I have a hope and a faith that one day I will hug her neck and she can wipe my tears away. Jason, you and your children are in my prayers.
