Kathryn C. (Noonan) Grande

1938 ~ 2022 (age 83)


Kathryn C. Grande (Noonan) of Naples, FL and Osterville, formerly of Milton passed away on January 27, 2022, surrounded by family. Born in Boston, Kathryn was a world traveler who lived overseas in Saudi Arabia, Indonesia and Singapore. She was loyal, kind, generous, loved her family and adored her grandchildren. She would always find a way to connect with someone on a personal level. With a vast, almost encyclopedic knowledge (and deep Boston roots), many would find a friend in Kathryn. Her laugh and genuine kindness brought a glow into any room that she graced. She never forgot any of the relationships that she built here and around the world. Her strength was unimaginable. She was a remarkable woman that touched many lives and will be sorely missed.

Beloved wife of Ralph J. of sixty years, daughter of the late Julia T. (Lydon) and Patrick F. Noonan. Mother of Michael J. Grande and his wife Lisa of Atlanta, GA; Stephen J. Grande and his wife Meg of Milton; Jacqueline Grande Mullen and her husband Christopher of Milton; and the late Caroline Grande.  Grandmother of Brian Grande, as well as twins Caroline and Kate Mullen.  Sister of Jean Kelly of Vero Beach, FL and Osterville, William Noonan of Bartlett, NH, Debra Walsh of Pepperell, and the late James Noonan. Also survived by several nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews. Funeral from the Alfred D. Thomas Funeral Home 326 Granite Ave Milton Friday morning at 9:00, followed by a Funeral Mass at St. Agatha Church, Milton Friday morning at 10:00.  Visiting hours Thursday 4-8 pm.  Burial at St. Joseph’s Cemetery, W.
