It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our mother Mary Kathryn Susan Grady Dolbin, who was 71, of Annapolis Maryland.
After her valiant fight with lung cancer in 2001 Kathy’s battle resumed in January 2012. Her strong will to live, faith in God and the love and prayers of family and friends carried her through more than 10 months of grueling Chemotherapy. Yet even with her struggle she reached out to everyone around her. She fought long and hard until the end, stayed positive and thought only of her family.
Affectionately known as “Kat” or “Kaddy” she always supported, admired and loved her children and grandchildren selflessly with her devoted and attentive husband by her side. Left to cherish her memory is her husband of 53 years John Dolbin and their five children Robyn Chaisson, Michael Dolbin his wife Brenda, John David Dolbin his wife Shannon, Timothy Dolbin his wife Daneta and Tracey Cothran and her husband Scott. Also left to remember her are her grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by Michael and Stella Grady and daughters Michelle and Casey.
