Kathleen A. Lovell, age 63, resident of Auburn, NY, died unexpectedly on May 16, 2018 at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester. 

Kathleen was born in Syracuse on July 28, 1954, a daughter of the late William H. and Margaret (Vinette) Murphy. Kathleen was a healer, educator, loved animals, and all things in nature. She spent many of her years raising her children, animals and growing plants. Although she suffered from Multiple Sclerosis from an early age she met every challenge with grace and dignity.

She is survived by her loving children; Jessamyn (Lee Montgomery) Lovell of Albuquerque, NM, Allsun (Ayhan Ozyesil) Ozyesil of Plattsburg, NY, Klare Gunnip of Weedsport, and A.J. (Tabatha Boyce) Lovell of Auburn, 6 grandchildren (Scotty, Pepper, Isaiah, Lilyahna, Rudy, and Frantz); her brother, Michael Murphy of Iowa and sister, Patricia Pitts of Skaneateles.

In accordance with Kathleen’s wishes, her burial was held privately at Greensprings Natural Cemetery Preserve in Newfield.  A celebration of her life will be planned by her family for later in the summer of 2018. In lieu of flowers, kindly consider a donation in Kathleen’s memory to  Multiple Sclerosis Association of America.
