Service: Kathy Y Shaughnessy

Kathy (Gill) Shaughnessy, 59, of Port Orange, Florida, peacefully passed away on October 22, 2021 surrounded by loved ones, after a very short battle with cancer and Covid-19.

Kathy grew up in Everett, Massachusetts with her mother Louise Ells, her father Robert LaRue, and brothers Robert Gill and William LaRue.

On August 10, 1985, she met the love of her life, Thomas Shaughnessy. Kathy and Tom got married in 1987 and went on to have two children, Thomas Shaughnessy, Jr. and Kasey (Shaughnessy) Muise. They raised their children in Salem, NH and then Hudson, NH. They then moved to Daytona Beach, FL in 2009. Kasey and her husband Jay Muise gave Kathy and Tom two beautiful grandchildren Henri and River Muise who are their pride and joy. Kathy and Tom also have two fur grandbabies Odin and Vili.

Kathy loved the beach, boating, and soaking up the sunshine. She adored spending time with her best friends from home Andrea Belisle and Denise Adams Larkin, and her many special friends from Florida. Kathy was always the life of the party and will be remembered for her kind and giving spirit, her radiant smile, and her contagious laugh.

Kathy was predeceased by Lou’s husband Bill (Digger) Ells, her grandmother Pauline Kessinger, and her in-laws Paul and Alice Shaughnessy. In addition to the above mentioned loved ones, Kathy is survived by her sister-in-law Erin Mitchell and her husband Robert Mitchell, her brother-in-law Paul Shaughnessy, her brother-in-law Patrick Shaughnessy and his wife Linda Shaughnessy, and her sister-in-law Kerry Normand and her husband Daniel Normand.

There will be a celebration of life for Kathy on Saturday October 30, 2021 at the American Legion in Middleton, MA from 2-6pm. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Jimmy Fund.
