Kathy graduated from St. Bartholomew Elementary School then went on to get her BS in education at Westfield State. She married her high school (Catholic Memorial) sweetheart at St. Bartholomew. After 15 years of moving around with the US Navy, Kathy, Bill and Dennis returned to Needham and St. Bartholomew. After 32 years as a legal secretary in Needham – guess what? – she returned to St. Bartholomew on a part time basis as the Friday Office Assistant. She is also actively involved in the parish choir and social club as well as various Needham social outreach organizations. The family has a great love and devotion for this parish and after 57 years in Needham still calls St. Bartholomew “home”.
