Kathleen “Kathy” Dion, 58, of Manchester, NH, passed away August 23, 2015.

Kathy was born March 8, 1957 in Manchester and was a lifelong resident of this community.

Kathy was Vice President of Insurance Operations at Cross Insurance Company.

Family includes her husband of 37 years, Darryl Dion; one son Ben Dion; one daughter, Samantha Dion; one grandson, Samuel; her parents, John & Patricia (Maynard) Kubit; and one sister, Karen Kubit.

Our hearts are broken as we had to say goodbye to the heart and essence of our family. Kathy loved us unconditionally and we have been blessed to be able to love her.

Kathy was sick for a longtime but never gave up. She continued to live everyday with us as if nothing was wrong, always telling everyone that she was fine.

Kathy loved to laugh and tease and always planned every minute of our many family vacations. Being home with her family all around, swimming in the pool, gardening and even working for the same company for 40 years are the things that brought Kathy happiness.

Kathy’s kindness and love extended to every person she has touched throughout her too short life. She has taught our family to be strong, to be there and support one another and to live on for she will be with us always.

So, to our loving daughter, my sister and best friend, my wife and reason to wake, my sweet mom “mama” and my grandmother, we all say goodnight, God Bless, we love you forever.

Calling hours will be Wednesday from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Cate & Johnson Funeral Home, 573 Pine Street, corner of Harrison Street in Manchester.

Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Thursday at 11:00 a.m. at St. Pius Church in Manchester. Burial will follow at St. Hedwig Cemetery in Bedford, NH.

Cate & Johnson Funeral Service of Manchester is directing arrangements.
