Kathy Gegenfurtner, age 78, and resident of her beautiful Pacifica for more than 30 years, died by suicide on Tuesday morning, Nov. 16, 2021. What took Kathy away from us? Probably isolation, loneliness, aging and the pandemic. It is so sad that Kathy could not reach out. Shortly before she died, she said, “I can’t do this anymore.” Kathy was private with her sadness, even though she had ex-partners, friends, and neighbors close by who all loved her.

Kathy was an extraordinary artist, music lover, especially jazz, and she loved the performing arts. She absolutely adored dogs! She loved to read. And loved gardening. As a flight attendant for 39 years, she traveled the world.
