Kathleen T Lyons left this earthly realm on April 9,2022 , after a battle with metastatic breast cancer. She was 76 years old.

It would be wrong to say that Kathleen lost her battle because she never stopped fighting. She was determined to fight not only for her but her Daughter and Grandson who she loved her very much .

No matter how sick she was, she was always determined. When anyone else would have broken, Kathleen stayed strong. Through her, we know what resilience and perseverance truly look like. Her faith in God and the Blessed Mother gave her strength. Her desire in the end was to be at home with the people who loved her the most and her Dogs .Just because she is no longer here, it doesn’t mean she lost her fight. Now she will be an Angel looking down on all who loved her .
