Kathleen Stetson

Kathleen “Kat” Ann Stetson, 51, of Swanzey and formerly of Attleboro, MA. died on Friday, April 29, 2016 at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, NH. She passed peacefully with the love of her family at her side after a brief illness.

Kathleen was a very loving wife and mother who could be found most times enjoying her most favorite things, the sun and the water. She was more often than not found walking her precious Pomeranians, Sunny Boy and Sadie on Swanzey Lake Rd. or taking them for a paddle around the lake in their bright red kayak.

When possible Kathleen would travel to Onset, MA. to the family’s cottage to lounge on the beach and enjoy the sun and sea. She was an avid fisherwoman and liked nothing better than to head out to Point Judith, R.I. for fluke and flounder.

One of the special things about Kathleen was that no matter what she was doing she always made time to be actively involved in the life and daily events of her two children Steven and Kate Pardini.
Kathleen Stetson
Kathleen was born on May 27, 1964 in Attleboro, MA. She spent her early childhood and adult life in the Attleboro area. She graduated from Attleboro High School class of 1982.

Two of Kathleen’s favorite memories of her early childhood involved going netting for eels with her grandfather and father and spending days in the kitchen with her grandmother learning the art of cooking which allowed Kathleen to become a fabulous cook.

Kathleen married Brian Pardini in 1983and they had 2 beautiful loving children, Steven James Pardini and Kate Lynn Pardini. The marriage ended but Kathleen remained a powerful force in the lives of her children.

Kathleen continued to live in the Attleboro area working in outside sales. She worked for Aggrego, Galeton and finally Granger. A serious injury to her ankle forced her to retire and give her the ability to focus all her energy and love in supporting her new husband Bill and her children and her family. This time also allowed her to support her favorite sports teams, the Red Sox, Patriots and Tom Brady.

Kathleen is survived by her loving husband, Bill Stetson of Swanzey. Her father, William Phipps of Attleboro. Her mother and step-father, Patricia and Ollie Woodward of Milford, MA. Her sister Sharon and David Lizotte of Bradon, Fl. and nieces and nephews, Angela Powell, Jessica Lizotte, Brandon Phipps, Joshua Phipps. Her brother Dan passed in 2015.
