Kathrine Ann Colby, age 49, passed away at 2:55 am Friday morning, 01/24/2020, in the comfort of her home due to a long battle with COPD and other illnesses. In the hours following, she was visited by many family members, friends, and other loved ones to see her one last time and say goodbye. She passed peacefully in her sleep.

Services will be held Saturday, Feb. 8th, at 1pm at the Moose Lodge in Newport, NH. Everyone is welcome. Kathrine has touched so many people in her lifetime, and I hope to see them all there showering her with the same love she always showed everyone around her. Family meant everything to Kathrine. From her sisters growing up, to her husband, kids, and grandkids as an adult. Family and Love is what mattered most, Always and Forever, as she would say. She didn’t care what we were doing, as long as we were all together. Although we’ve known this day was coming, letting her go was just as hard for her as it was for all of us, if not harder. She lived for her family, blood or not. Kathrine was a beautiful soul. She loved to dance, she rode motorcycles, snowmobiles, four wheelers, dirt bikes, she had tea parties and played dress up with the grandkids, she was so adventurous and loved to travel. There was nothing she wouldn’t do. In her short time on this earth, Kathrine lived for making memories. She was loving, encouraging, compassionate. Sometimes a little hard, and honest to a T, but always full of love, and always with good intentions. Kathrine Ann Colby will be dearly loved and missed for all of eternity. Until we meet again, With love, Always & Forever.
