KAISER, Kathleen (Hickman)
KAISER - Kathleen (nee Hickman)
Passed away peacefully Tuesday, February 5, 2019, at Mercy Hospital in Buffalo, after a brief illness. She was born May 10, 1946 to her proud parents Reginald and Gertrude (Roberts) Hickman (deceased) in Niagara Falls and attended schools in Niagara Falls and Grand Island. Kathy was the loving, high school sweetheart of Robert Kaiser, Jr., and his wife for 53 years. The couple were married in Grand Island on September 4, 1965. Together they had a cool son, Kenneth, who passed away at the age of 26 from Cystic Fibrosis. Due to Kathy's pure love and devotion to Ken, he far exceeded the life expectancy for the disease. She was the glue at Bob and Don's Auto Care for many years keeping the business moving forward. Kathy was also a lover of animals, especially her cat Olive. She was the daughter-in-law of Robert (deceased) and Lois Kaiser of New Port Richey, FL and the sister-in-law of Richard and Deborah Kaiser of Frisco, TX. She was the sister of Jackie Moxley (deceased), Barbara Pierce, and a brother, Robert (Kathleen) Hickman. She is survived by many friends, relatives and neighbors whom she cherished and who cherished her. Kathy enjoyed boating with friends at the Tonawanda Island Launch Club, traveling by RV, gardening, decorating, cooking Italian food, playing trivia with the gang or just entertaining at their log home in Sardinia. There will be a private interment service with a summer celebration of her life in Sardinia at a later date. Donations may be made to the Buffalo Children's Lung Center of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Arrangements by Kaiser Funeral Home.
