Obituary

Katherine A. Lovig passed away surrounded by her loving family at age 77 in Tolland, CT. Kathy is survived by her children, David Lovig of St. Petersburg, FL, Deborah London and her husband Scott London of Tolland, CT, brother Robert Morcey and his wife Chris of Lake Forest, CA, sister Frances and her partner George Hartery of Myrtle Beach, SC, grandchildren Chloe London, Alaina Vermilya and Jonah Vermilya, nieces and nephews Tricia and Guy Gentil of Middlebury, CT, Mark and Mary Stein of Middlebury, CT, Kimberly Stein and Dritan Biba of Madrid, Spain and great nieces and nephews, Lauren, Zachary, Alex, Chase, Blake, Violeta and Viggo. She is also survived by her beloved rescue Cocker Spaniel, Gretchen who has been her tried and true companion. She is preceded in death by her mother Ruth Calhoun Morcey and father Sidney A. Morcey.

She touched the lives of everyone she met and was known for her kind and gentle nature. She rarely asked for a thing but was always giving and loving without expectations. Kathy was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer on July 1st and spent the remainder of her short 14 days surrounded by friends and family on hospice in her daughter's home where family from across the US and Europe gathered in vigil to be by her side. We all ache with a hole in our hearts for the best Mom, Sister, Aunt and friend a person could ask for you.

Born Katherine A. Morcey on August 19, 1941 in Waterbury, CT to Ruth and Sidney Morcey of Watertown, CT. She attended St. John’s School in Watertown, CT and graduated from Waterbury Catholic High School in 1959. She went on to work as a preschool teacher at Notre Dame Academy in Waterbury, editor at Colonial Bank & Trust and later reinvented herself as a Home Health Aid for the Watertown VNA which was her true life calling. Kathy was a passionate caregiver who had a special gift for elder care. After retiring to Coventry, CT to be closer to her grandchildren, she adopted her best friend and canine companion, Gretchen. Kathy had a life long love of not only Cocker Spaniels, but also horses and enjoyed watching her granddaughter Chloe become a young equestrian. Family was everything to Kathy and she attended every event that her grandchildren participated in and especially adored Jonah and Alaina’s musical performances. Kathy was thoughtful and kind, never missing an opportunity to send a card to every family member on their birthdays. She was famous for her pies and fudge and enjoyed knitting and crocheting delicate doilies. She also loved traveling to visit her son in Florida.

A funeral is scheduled for Wednesday, July 17th at 10:30am at Calvary Cemetery, Waterbury, CT. Family and friends are welcome to attend and celebrate Kathy's life. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Cocker Spaniel Rescue of New England at csrne.org/donate/ or HHC Hospice hartfordhealthcareathome.org/donate . Our family would like to thank Hartford Healthcare at Home Hospice for their professional and empathetic care in Kathy’s brief but loving end of life care. A special thanks to RN’s Linda Poulus and Laurie Koch for their expertise and compassionate support of our entire family.
