She was born on May 9, 1949, in Boston, MA, to Ernest R. Mattioli and Mary (Connaughton). Kathy was a loving, kind, and intelligent woman who touched the lives of everyone she met.
Kathy was a proud graduate of Milton High School, Class of 1967. She furthered her education at Chandler School for Women, where she developed a keen intellect and a strong work ethic. She carried these qualities into her career with the Defense Contract Management Agency for the U.S. Department of Defense (DCMA), where she faithfully served for over 30 years. Her dedication and commitment to her work were admired by all who knew her.
On September 22, 1973, Kathy married the love of her life, Charles E. Wehner Jr. They were blessed with two children, daughter Kaitlyn E. Wakem and her husband Marc and son Christopher L. Wehner. Kathy's love for her family was evident in everything she did. She took great pride in her children's accomplishments and was a constant source of support and encouragement.
In addition to her immediate family, Kathy is survived by her siblings, Nancy C. Brady of Dorchester and Robert E. Mattioli and his wife Mary of Marlborough. She also leaves behind many cousins, nieces, and nephews who will fondly remember her warm smile and generous spirit. Kathy also shared a special bond with her "Kidney Sister", Sheila Yerxa of Walpole, a relationship that spoke volumes of her resilience and strength.
Kathy was a woman of many interests. She loved going out to eat and took great pleasure in trying new restaurants. Kathy enjoyed daytrips, shopping, Broadway shows and she enjoyed traveling anywhere, especially the Caribbean. Later in life, she had a newfound love for dogs, Scooby, Lainey and Molly.
Kathy's life was characterized by her unwavering kindness and her love for others. Her memory will live on in the hearts of those she leaves behind, a testament to a life well-lived. She will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.
In closing, we remember Kathleen Mary Wehner (Mattioli), a remarkable woman who lived her life with grace and kindness.
