Kathleen (Kathy) Theresa Lees, 77, passed away Monday, April 13th, 2020, due to
from complications from COVID-19.

Kathy was born November 28, 1942, and resided in Bronx, NY, with her parents Kathleen McNamara and Patrick Campbell - immigrants from Galway, Ireland. Kathy, smart and precocious, excelled academically, and earned a scholarship from Hunter College. She was the first in her family to attend and graduate from college, and cultivated her passion for learning throughout her life.

Kathy loved to travel with her husband Bill to both New Hampshire and Maine. Her love for travel was rivaled only solely by her love for the Yankees. She'd listen to every game that she could on a tiny radio that she kept in her bedroom. She also adored animals of all shapes and sizes, as well as the children with whom she interacted as a Park School teacher's assistant - a position that she filled for almost two decades. Kathy was known for her boisterous laughter, her kindness, her generosity, and her love of Irish culture.

Kathy is survived by her husband William Lees of 46 years. She is lovingly remembered by her daughter Jen Lees and her son-in-law Matthew Bottiglieri, who reside in Portland, Oregon.

Since Kathy was such a huge animal lover, memorial donations can be made in her name to the Oregon Humane Society at:
or to the Portland Audubon Society at:
