Brooklyn, New York

Born in Cohoes, NY, raised in Brooklyn, Kathé first worked at the Woolworth Building as an executive secretary with mad stenography skills.

Her true passion for the arts & culture and higher learning took her over the bridge, to her beloved city of Manhattan. There she honed her sophistication with a fervor for theater, photography, fashion, museums, music, and fine dining. Like the brightest lights on Broadway, Kathé lit up any room with her hilarious wit, engaging everyone she met and putting them at ease with a genuine interest in ‘you’.

A wife of 68 years to Jerry Kolins from Gloversville, NY, she’s also mother to Brian Kolins and mother/best friend to Leslie Kolins Small. Kathé lived as she loved and was loved, with the whole heart!
