HANNACROIX - Kathryn “Kathy” Ellis, passed away peacefully to be with her loved ones in heaven on Wednesday, May 24, 2017 with her family by her side.

     Kathy, born on 2/16/1957, was the daughter of Kay Shear and step-daughter of John Klein and the late Alva Shear.

     Kathy was raised in the Bronx and later moved to Ravena where she met her husband Lloyd, the love of her life, who she was married to for 25 years.

     Kathy loved life, her family, friends and the animals she rescued and helped find homes for.  She cared more for others than herself.  Her career was her family and her family was her life.  To know her was to love her.

     Kathy is survived by her beloved mother, Kay Shear; her devoted husband Lloyd; cherished sons, Kevin, Stephen and Brian; revered brother Dan (Lisa) McCarthy; and a large extended family

     Per Kathy’s request a private service will be held. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Menands Animal Shelter or the charity of your choice..
