She was a lover of all animals and had a particular soft spot for rescue dogs. Kathy also enjoyed listening to music, attending concerts, traveling, watching horse races and visiting casinos. She was always up for a free room and a free buffet! Above all, Kathy always enjoyed her time spent playing poker with her family.
Surviving family members include her son, Justin Shang, and her sisters, Gloria Fazzone, Carolyn Hammond, and Karen Neander, as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
