We were neighbors with Kate for the past 7 years. She was very kind-hearted and always there if you needed her. A sweet lady! Glad she is at peace now. Condolences to her family. PS Maxx, thanks to you and Grandma for that blueberry pie!

So very sorry to hear of Kate's passing. We worked together in various capacities over the years and a long-term friendship developed.

Kate was an incredibly smart, genuine, passionate and caring individual ... in addition to her always sharp wit and great sense of humor!

May you rest comfortably in peace Kate ...

I am so sorry to hear of Kate's passing. Our path's crossed many times over the course of several years and I relied on her knowledge and insight throughout her time at NYSEG. Her patience was unequaled. She was one the very best.

Kathy was a warm-hearted effervescent classmate who seemed to welcome all of us to join in her laughter and her happy patter. Always nice, always smiling. Shining crescent eyes and short dark lustrous hair. She had a giggle for life that echoed in sweet surround sound. Her Facebook posts of her family were very loving and very recognizable as the girl her classmates knew and loved from Oneonta High School. Blessings upon her family and Healing Love.

A lady who had "customer service" in her DNA. During times of change at NYSEG, she helped fellow employees as best should could from her manager's seat. A friend to all !
