I was just informed of Kathy's passing by her daughter in law on Monday. She passed on Saturday 9/17/19. after having some health issues of late. When her obit comes out I will pass it along to Ira.

What can I say about Kathy? I never really knew her until Senior Class Trip, when the infamous bus #16 broke down on th Jersey Pike. A bunch of us sat on the grass waiting for another bus and really got to talk, and get to know each other!  It was the best Class Trip ever! I hadn't seen her since graduation, but we connected by e-mail about 25 years ag, and exchanged e-mail at least once a week.

She was one of a kind, and always had something nice thing to say about everyone she encountered. She had a memory like a steel trap. She was my "Philly Historian" always reminding me about the Philly goings on long after I moved to Connecticut after the Navy. Her e-mails always were up-beat, and usually included u-tubes from the old days 5th Street, Hotte Shoppes Wanamakers Christmas displays, or Sally Star, or Jerry Blavitt or any number of other nostalgia.

I will miss her greatly,

Steve Rubin '67
