Kathy Nolan

Kathy Nolan, 68, passed away April 6 2021.

Kathy was born to James and Gloria Devito and grew up in Wayne, NJ. Her compassionate trait led her to become a Home Health Aid for over 20 years with Emerald Healthcare Services. She later met John Nolan and the two married, and have been devoted to one another for 47 years. Kathy and John had two children who they raised in Riverdale, NJ.

Kathy loved a challenge from puzzles, crossword puzzles and word searches. She enjoyed needlepoint and baking. Her family and friends looked forward to Kathy’s baked goods. She never disappointed with her Irish soda bread, cookies and kruschiki. Family was everything to Kathy and the best accomplishment she could gain in her life.  She loved to have her family surround her.  Kathy will be remembered for her smile that lit up the room when she was around and her loyalty. She was the first person that people would call if they needed help with anything.  

Kathy is survived by her loving husband John; her sons John Nolan and James Nolan and his wife Leslie; her sisters Lori and her husband William, Jamie and her husband Jerome; Kathy was blessed to have her grandchildren Kayla and Alyssa.
