Born on April 4, 1955, daughter of Angela Ferraro Mullarkey Minella of West Scranton and the late Patrick J. Mullarkey, Kathy was a graduate of the former West Catholic High School, Class of 1973. A graduate of Mercy Hospital’s School of Nursing, her career as a Pediatric Registered Nurse, working for Mercy Hospital, spanned nearly 20 years.
A devoted Roman Catholic, Kathy played an active role in St. Patrick’s Church Parish in West Scranton, where she also served as Administrative Assistant, Eucharistic Minister and Sacristan. She was passionate about her work and her church, but her greatest joy came in spending time with her adoring nieces and nephews.
Passing away peacefully surrounded by her loving family after a brief illness, she will be forever missed by her family and friends.

She was also preceded in death by her step-father, Angelo R. Minella, in 2007.
Her family would like to thank the amazing staff of Hospice of the Sacred Heart who collectively made such a difficult time much more comfortable for both them, as well as Kathy.
