Kathleen O'Brien was born on January 15, 1935 in Boston, Massachusetts to Patrick and Aimee (Rogers) O'Rourke. Kathleen graduated from Hyde Park High School, Boston in 1953. On February 2, 1957, she married Bill O'Brien also of Hyde Park at St. Joseph's Catholic Church. They raised their three children traveling from Boston, Massachusetts to Newark, Delaware then to Dalgety Bay, Scotland; finally settling in Austin, Texas in 1980. What Kathleen enjoyed most about moving from place to place was meeting new people and making new friends. For every stranger Kathleen met, whether she bumped into them walking on the street, in line at the grocery store or sat next to them on a plane, she had kind words or funny anecdotes to tell them. Any encounter with Kathleen was a real pleasure. While living in Scotland she was determined to introduce her children's friends to American treats. Now adults, they still talk about "salted" popcorn, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and their first taste of pizza.
She was preceded in death by her son, Billy O'Brien. She is survived by her husband of 49 years, Bill O'Brien; her daughter, Erin Sansing and husband Tom; her daughter, Aimee Cedrone and husband Alfredo
