    Just heard of Kathleen’s passing. Our sincere condolences to the family from our family. We were next door neighbors for many, many years and knew the whole family on Holland Ave. Do not have her niece’s phone or address or would have sent my personal condolences . Just want them to know the Volpe family sends their love and sympathy.
