Madison, WI - Catherine (Kay) Brophy passed away in the company of loving family members on August 23, 2009 in Madison, WI. The youngest of five children, she was born in Brooklyn, NY on February 14, 1924 to Blanche and Christopher Reilly. Kay married Walter Fahey in 1942, served in the Marine Corp. during World War II, then moved to Long Island where the couple raised five children. She was a long-time employee of the United States Postal Service, working as an injury compensation specialist. After being widowed several years, she was happily married to Tom Brophy until his death in 1981. Upon her retirement, Kay moved to Florida where she found wonderful new friends and the opportunity to pursue her enjoyment of books, mah-jongg, and golf. Kay is survived by her daughter Cathy and her husband Tom; her daughter Mary, her husband Rob, and their children Anna and Tom; and her son Joe, his wife Denise, and their children Nicole, Andrew and Valerie. Catherine's sons Barney and Steve preceded her in death, but she is remembered today by her daughter-in-law Lesle and grandchildren Dan, Ryan, Casey, and Brian. Interment at Forest Hill Cemetery followed a Committal Service presided over by Msgr. Donn Heiar. Her family would like to extend its thanks to Dr. Noelle LoConte and her team as well as to the wonderfully caring personnel at HospiceCare in Fitchburg, WI.
