Several years later, Kathy went back to work at Vitramon Inc in Monroe CT holding various management positions for 25 years before retiring in December 2015. Kathy's first priority and greatest joy came from her family, two children Beth Gabriel (& James Slack) and Cass Mieczakowski (& wife Anitra), stepdaughter Marie deJesus (& husband Victor) and five grandchildren Emma, Sophia, Ashlyn, Joshua and Kyle. She leaves behind her brothers Christopher Carr and William Carr. She was predeceased by her parents William Carr and Mary Lou Carr-Miller, her sister Winifred and stepfather Joseph Miller.
