Kathleen Ann Retallick passed away suddenly on Tuesday, Oct. 27, 2020, in Milford, Pa. She was 66.

Daughter of Claude Briscoe and Marilynn (Ridley) Hunt, she was born on March 30, 1954, in Port Jervis, N.Y.

Kathy loved her homestead on Husson Road, where she raised her family. Visitors expected or unexpected were always welcome at the house and were greeted by her menagerie of pets, which included at least two or three dogs, four or more cats, ducks, and finally her beloved horses.

Kathy was outspoken to say the least, headstrong, stubborn, she did not mince words. She was also the first one there if anyone needed help. Generous to a fault and caring, she would make multiple phone calls every day to touch base with friends just to see how they were getting along. Kathy’s biggest pride and joy were her grandchildren, Matthew, Wyatt, Isabella, and Sophia. Their visits were always so special.

Kathy worked as a dental assistant, a bartender, an associate at non-profit foundation, and finally as a surgical technician at Newton Memorial Hospital and Orange Regional Hospital.

She was predeceased by her mother and stepfather, Marilynn and Robert Hunt of Milford; father, Claude Briscoe of Milford; and brother, Goerge Koerner of San Francisco.

She is survived by sisters, Colleen Musselwhite and husband, Daniel, of Hendersonville, N.C., Claudia Briscoe of Mesa, Ariz., and Michelle Hutchison of Hatfield, Pa.; brother, William Briscoe and wife, Jane Campbell, of Milford; sons, David Snyder and wife, Kimberly; grandchildren, Isabella and Sofia of Las Vegas, Nev., Peter Snyder and wife, Amie, Matthew and Wyatt of Greenville, Maine, and Nicholas Retallick of Palm Coast, Fla.

Due to the health crisis, cremation was private. A celebration of life will be held when appropriate

Memorial donations may be made to the Pike County Humane Society.
