Kathleen was born to a large, Loving family on September 13, 1938 and grew up knowing that family and friends were the most important part of life. She married her beloved Lane Cuomo in 1957. Together they raised Their family on Princetown Road where everyone was always welcomed and many gatherings and celebrations were held. She held numerous jobs around Schenectady from being the first waitress at Sportsman's bowl to being the friendliest lunch lady at Mohonasen High school. Kathleen loved her Sunday Macaroni dinners with her kids, grandkids and great-grandkids who adored their "Grandma- Roni".
