Age 75, of Sheraden, passed away on Wednesday, May 10, 2023. Beloved wife of the late James Treemarchi; daughter of Dolores and the late Paul Marion; loving mother of Beth Wachowiak (Robert) and Karen Gearhart (Dean); bonus mother of Michelle Battista (Dan); grandmother of Hailey and Emily Wachowiak, Luke, Leslie, Lydia Gearhart and Alexis Pugliese (Jesse), McKenna and the late Noah Battista; sister of Paul Marion (Diane).
Kathy was an amazing and devoted grandmother, mother, wife, and friend. She adored and doted on her grandchildren to anyone she could. She was generous, kind, and the gentlest soul you could meet. She loved her people unconditionally and always went above and beyond. She could effortlessly make you feel comfortable and supported.
She was deeply faithful, humble, had the best sense of humor, and loved to laugh. She could laugh at herself and taught by example of how to not take yourself too seriously. This was an excellent quality to have, considering that she thought horses were bald except for their mane and tail.
Kathy was known for how she consistently volunteered her time, being a perfect neighborhood mom, being an Uno champ, a Girl Scout leader, and how she was the #1 cheerleader for her daughters and grandkids. She was royalty, or at least was deemed royalty by her granddaughter Emily who unofficially crowned her as the “Queen of Monochrome Outfits.” She was somehow able to find clothes that were exact color matches from different stores and at different times, and managed to find jewelry and shoes that also perfectly matched.
She was the inventor of squishy hugs, and when you were lucky enough to be on the receiving end of one, you’d smell her favorite scent, “Moonlight Path” from Bath & Body Works. She loved to snuggle up with her loved ones, or alone, to binge watch Hallmark Channel movies or home renovation shows. Her loved ones enjoyed her delicious cooking, because she made the best spaghetti sauce, meatballs, and wedding soup.
Her daughters say that everything good about them comes from their mom, Kathy. They learned from her genuine, warm spirit in her daily life, but also from extra special moments when she would take her girls out to eat and to the movies when their dad was away for the Reserves. That warmth, kindness, and dedication made her grandkids want to be involved in church just from watching her and knowing her.
Kathy absolutely loved purple and flowers. Lilacs were her favorite. Next time you see some, pause and be in the moment, remember her, and find enjoyment in the day-to-day, just how she did.
