Obituary of Kathleen N. Ames

Kathleen "Katy" Ames passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 6, 2024, at the age of 83. She was predeceased by her husband, Robert (2020); her grandson, Sean Dylan Ames; her parents, Harry and Anna Newton; her sisters, Sheila Dixon and Maureen Pierce; and her sister-in-law, Sandy Herdeman. She is survived by her sons, Stephen (Patti) Ames, David (Kathy) Ames, Keith (Mindy) Ames, and Jim (Helen) Ames; her 12 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren; her brother, Jim (Noreen) Newton; and her brother-in-law, Alan Herdeman.

Katy worked at Eastman Kodak for 24 years and 16 years at BOCES in Spencerport. Katy was overly friendly, energetic, always smiling, and the life of the party. She enjoyed walking and spending time with her family. Whether it was as “Krazy Katy” or “Thunder Lungs,” she never missed an opportunity to cheer on her kids’ and grandkids’ activities: hockey, soccer, football, wrestling matches, dance recitals or any school event.  She had a passion for the Drum and Bugle corps and loved to watch the Rochester Crusaders perform. She truly enjoyed spending time with the Class of 58’ crew and loved every minute of their company. Katy was proudly a 4th of July baby and did not need an excuse to sport the red white & blue colors!  She will be deeply missed by all that knew her, especially her beloved family and friends. 

Friends and family are invited to call on Friday May 24, 2024, from 4 - 7 p.m. at the Thomas E. Burger Funeral Home, 735 East Avenue in Hilton. Interment will take place at the convenience of the family.
