Kathryn E. Mulcahy, 91, passed away Saturday evening October 19, 2019 at Anna Jacques Hospital in Newburyport. She was born in Newburyport on April 4, 1928 to the late Ernest and Mildred (Naimie) Walton. She was raised in Newburyport and was a graduate of Newburyport High School before receiving a degree from UMass Amherst. In 1951, she married the late Ralph Mulcahy, and moved to Salisbury Beach, where they raised their family. They moved to Amesbury in 1964 where they lived for 55 happy years. She was able to stay at home with her children, a job she cherished as nothing gave her more joy than spending time with her family. She also got a lot of satisfaction tutoring children with learning disabilities. Kathryn and Ralph owned a home in North Conway, NH where she enjoyed many years with family & friends. Kathryn was a woman of many passions, including horseback riding, bridge, travel, skiing, and golf. Her love for travel took her from safaris in Africa to riverboats in Europe to ski trips in the Alps to sailing trips in the Caribbean. As she always said, “I’m a lucky old lady!”
