ATHENS – Kathleen E. Harrington, born January 31, 1945 in Skowhegan, Maine, died Wednesday, June 29, 2022 at 2:00 a.m. at the age of 77. Kathleen married Glen (Jake) C. Harrington, Sr. on July 1, 1960 and they spent 52 years together before Jake passed away. Together they raised three children, Barry L. Harrington, Glen C. Harrington, Jr. and Laurie A. LaCasse. Kathy was a devoted and loving wife, mother, sister, Nanni and friend to everyone in her life.

Kathy went to work at an early age for Norwock Shoe Factory, then moved on to Dexter Shoe. She was a very dedicated employee and made lifelong friends with her colleagues. She practiced many activities. One of her favorites was taking long drives to nowhere and finding that cute little “hole in the wall” place to eat on a sunny day with her husband, Jake. She has enjoyed many camping trips with family and friends, as well as tap dancing lessons with a large group of ladies, and most recently is a proud member of the Ruby Red Jewels. She enjoyed spending time barbecuing and hanging out by the pool with her family.

Kathy will be sadly missed by her loving family and many friends. She is predeceased by her husband, Glen C. Harrington, Sr, her mother, Margaret Rogers and her brother, Patrick Eagan. Kathy is survived by her three children, son Barry L Harrington and his wife Naomi, son Glen C. Harrington Jr. and daughter Laurie A. LaCasse and partner, David Thibault. As well as his siblings and their spouses, Noreen LeBrun and her husband Jerome, Timothy Eagen, Gaylon Rogers and his wife Sharon, Anita Cooley and her husband Leonard and Rebecca Savage and her partner Don Leib. Kathy loved her seven grandchildren, Isaac, Alex, Joshua, Jacob, William, Glen, Zachary and Brandon, as well as many great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. All were very dear to him. The family would like to thank the caregivers at Tissues Boarding Home in Athens for the tender and loving care they provided to Kathy. She called the fabrics “house”. Mom, we love you very much and will always miss you. Give Daddy, Nanna and everyone else in heaven our love and hugs.
