Kathlyn “Kathy” Kane Veronesi, born Jan. 30, 1943, passed away on Monday, Jan. 11, 2021, at the Hospital of Central Conn. in New Britain. She was the wife of the late Robert C. Veronesi, her beloved spouse of 31 years.

Born in Meriden, she was the daughter of the late James P. Kane and the late Sara E. (Burkee) Kane. Kathy was a 1961 graduate of Berlin High School and was employed at Northeast Utilities as an administrative assistant before retiring. Kathy loved traveling, especially cruises, and her favorite was to Alaska. Her biggest passion and pride by far were her grandchildren and she never missed a chance to cheer them on at sporting events and other activities. She was a woman of strong faith and a member of St. Paul Church, Kensington.

She is survived by her son Robert M. Veronesi (Robin) and her daughter Carol A. Veronesi; her brother James F. Kane (Angela); her grandchildren Michael R. Veronesi and Nicole Kathlyn Veronesi; her sisters-in-law Annette Hines, Dorothy Fox and Adrienne Kane; her brothers-in-law Thomas Veronesi (Marty Winchell) and Roy Fox and many nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her brother John C. Kane, her brother-in- law Michael J. Hines and her aunt Helen Cobey. She had a lifelong bond with Ines Gerstenblatt and her late sister Beatrice and considered them family.

Due to the pandemic and Kathy’s expressed concern for the health of her family and friends, there will be no calling hours. Instead, they are invited directly to church for a Mass of Christian Burial which will be celebrated on Saturday, Jan. 16 at 10 a.m. at St. Paul Church, 485 Alling St., Kensington. Burial will be at Maple Cemetery, 1165 Worthington Ridge, Berlin. Erickson-Hansen Funeral Home of Berlin is in charge of arrangements.
