Date of Birth: November 30, 1948


          Kathleen Capuano, 72, of Brunswick, Maine, died on October 23, 2021 at her home.  She was born in Glen Cove, New York on November 30, 1948, the eldest daughter of John Kenney and Mary Kenney, nee Flynn, of Sea Cliff, New York.

          Kathleen was a member of Phi Beta Kappa upon graduation from Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood, New York.  Later, she graduated near the top of her class at Queens College, City University of New York, with a major in Communication.  Kathleen finished her education when she graduated with a Master of Arts from Westchester University, Westchester, Pennsylvania with a major in Speech Communication.  While attending graduate school she taught part-time at Rutgers University, Temple University, Westchester University, and Rider University.

          One of Kathleen’s passions in life was teaching.  She mentored many students in Public Speaking, giving them the confidence and professionalism to deliver material in a manner that would make others pause and listen.

          As a mother, Kathleen gave her three daughters not only the courage to move forward in life, but to always treat others with kindness, love, and respect.  She taught them to view life as she did, with the view that all people are lovely and deserving of a chance to prove themselves.

          Kathleen was an inspiring woman with an outgoing and friendly personality. She had an infectious laugh and a beautiful smile. Her warmth and love for her family and friends will be forever cherished by those who were lucky to know her.
