It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved mother Katherine Leigh (Emond) Fowler of Dorchester Massachusetts on July 6th 2019. At the age of 63 she passed away peacefully at Seasons Hospice in Milton Ma. after a long battle with lung disease.
Kathy as she was known by her friends and family was born April 22, 1956 In St Petersburg Fl. but was raised in the Boston area and was a life long resident of Dorchester Ma.
She was the beloved daughter of the late Hazel and George McCormick and loving sister of her late twin brother Thomas C Emond “Shea”.
She was a loving mother to her children Stephanie Fowler of Williamsburg Virginia, Shannon (Paul) Simon of Membertou Nova Scotia, Adrian Paul Jr of Vancouver British Columbia and son in law Forest Simon of Membertou Nova Scotia.
She was know as Nana to the the grandchildren she adored so much granddaughters Arya Katherine Leigh Simon of Membertou Nova Scotia, Taylor Briggs of Pembroke Massachusetts, grandsons Phoenix Simon of Membertou Nova Scotia and Eric Paul of Springfield Ma.
Kathy was the kindest most gentle soul. Forever loved by her many friends and family. She was always ready to help anyone out, her kind and loving spirit touched so many people through out her life. To know Kathy was to know a beautiful, generous, caring woman. The world is a better place because of her existence. She taught her children and grandchildren what the meaning of unconditional true love is. She always was willing to lend a ear to anyone who needed someone talk to. She ment so much to the people that loved her the most.
She was a woman of strong Catholic faith and enjoyed her relationship with God. Kathy was a woman of humble means but always gave unconditionally. She believed in love, honesty, kindness and forgiveness.
In her free time she enjoyed going swimming with her friends at the Dorchester house, dinner dates, trips to the casino and bingo with her good friends Darlene, Bev and Julie.
She was very creative and artistic. She loved drawing, painting, making crochet blankets for her grand babies and she use to make the most beautiful Christmas tree ornaments that everyone just loved.
She enjoyed good food, good laughs and good company. Loved to drink her coffee and listen to music when she woke up in the morning. She also enjoyed playing the numbers game with her friends from her apartment building.
Kathy had the gift of a green thumb. She loved her house plants and cared for them with the same love, kindness and patience as she did her children and grandchildren. She was a nurturing soul that also loved animals. Every pet she had throughout her life would be stuck like glue to her, even animals would gravitate to her to bright gentle spirit.
Kathy was humble and didn’t do much for her self but every once in a while enjoyed a splurge on wonderful smelling perfumes. Anyone who knew Kathy knew she never left home without wearing one of her many favourite fragrances.
Kathy was an amazing human being and as her daughter I will love and honour her memory forever and ever. Mom may you watch over us till the day we meet again, you are our guardian angel now.
We love you so much mom and you will never be forgotten. You will live forever in our hearts.
The family would like to thank moms close friends Darlene, Beverly and Julie for everything they have done for mom. Also her therapist of over 30 years Jeanette who was moms biggest supporter. Mom could always count on all of you and thank you for that. She loved you all so much. Also thank you to Seasons Hospice for helping mom leave this world in comfort and dignity.
