Kathleen ( Nolan ) McGuinness passed away on March 27, 2015 at the age of 85.

She was born in Dublin Ireland on November 23, 1929. She married Frank Joseph McGuinness, a Mechanical Engineer, and they immigrated to Los Angeles, CA in 1957.

While raising seven children, she earned an Associate of Art Degree at LA Pierce College. Kathleen also played the lead parts in such plays as Dracula, Arsenic and Old Lace, and others. She also loved writers and musicians. One of her favorite singers was Joe Cocker, and a favorite poet, James Joyce.

She was full of passion for life; she often said "Don't be a stick in the mud"

She is survived by seven children, nine grandchildren, and a great grandson.
