Kathryn Ann Levy of Milford, Pa., passed away Tuesday, March 16, in Port Jervis, N.Y. She was 76.
Daughter of the late John and Anna (Staffoli) Adamo, she was born Sept. 30, 1944, in Brooklyn, N.Y.
She was a retired director of Midpoint Associated Practitioners, New York, N.Y. She was a loving and devoted mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend.
She graduated Franklin K. Lane High School in 1962. In 1969 she met the love of her life, Mark Levy, while working at Bach in New York City. They married on July 4, 1970, marking the beginning of a love-filled journey.
She was the shortest yet eldest of four. Kat had a zest for all things unique. Any one-of-a-kind being would quickly gain her affection and praise. She loved to read, paint, travel, explore new places, and meet new people. She loved Frank Sinatra, Patsy Cline, and all things Broadway. If you wanted to turn a regular time into a great time, she was equipped for such at all times. She had a sweet tooth for Haagen Daaz coffee ice cream, chocolate covered strawberries, black licorice, and those weird elephant peanut candies. Her small stature would emit energy to that of a private jet, and her smile would light up a room.
Kat carried herself with a peaceful sense of power. She was easy to run to, eager to listen, and always had a shoulder to cry on. Mom underestimated how quick she could make anyone laugh at any given time. She was feisty, aka Sicilian, tenacious, forthright and just plain funny. She protected her husband in every capacity, and would do anything in the world for her children. Her role as Grandmother, naming her Momma Kat, replenished her heart to the brim with complete joy.
Kat will be sorely missed by all who knew her. Her spirit will carry on through the lives of her children Karyn Gouger and her husband, Christopher, Andrew Levy and his wife, Deanna, and Elayna Levy; brother, Vincent Adamo and his wife, Debra; sisters, Jayne Aidala; Laura Dustin; five beautiful grandchildren, Jonathan, Emily, Ethan, Taylor, and Justin; and several beloved nieces and nephews, Joshua, David, John and his wife, Ashley, Sarah and her fiancé, Paul, Rachele, Aimee and her fiancé, Tom, and Chris.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Mark; her brother-in-law Richard Aidala; and her beloved Pomeranian, Eddy.
