Obituary of Kathleen S. Edwards Cirasuolo

On Friday, April 23, 2021, I passed away at the young age of 72, in my husband's loving arms. I was born in Utica, on September 7, 1948, daughter of Stewart and Marjorie (Bielby) Edwards. I graduated from New York Mills Jr. Sr. High School in 1966. On May 4, 1968, I married the love of my life, Michael A. Cirasuolo Sr. at St. Mary's Church in New York Mills. We celebrated our 52nd anniversary this past year. We've been lifelong residents of Yorkville for the last 47 years. I was a stay-at-home Mom until both of our kids went to school. My career in accounting began at Chicago Pneumatic Tool Company in 1968, then to Empire Utility Construction, Brown Brothers Hotel-Motel supply and then to The Hartford in 1976. I retired from The Hartford in 2001 after 25 years of service in the Accounting Department. Our summer, from May 1st - November 1st were spent at Sandy Point Private Club (SPPC) on Fish Creek in Vienna, NY for the last 40 years. We couldn't wait to get there in May, and once we were there, we never wanted to leave, not even when the snow was falling. I am survived by my husband, Michael A. Cirasuolo Sr., our children Michael A. Jr., and his wife Roxanne of Marcy. My best friend and daughter Christina M. and her husband John Trzepacz of New Hartford.
