Catherine (McHugh) "Kay" McKittrick passed away at her home, Tuesday afternoon, August 28th. The beloved wife of the late Edward McKittrick, Kay was ninety-nine years of age.

Born in Woburn and a lifelong resident, she was the daughter of the late Charles and Catherine (McGuillan) McHugh. One of six children born into the McHugh family, Kay, as she was affectionately known over the years, was raised and educated here. A St. Charles graduate in 1936, Kay remained very active throughout the years with the St. Charles Alumni and was a very devout Catholic, having been an active participant in the church for all her life.

When World War II broke out, Kay went to work for the Army Signal Center in Boston where she remained until shortly after the war had ended. Kay then secured herself a position with the New England Telephone Company, where she remained until her retirement in 1978.

All throughout the years Kay was very dedicated to her brother and sisters. She also shared a very special relationships with her nieces and nephews, who were very dear to her.

When Kay sat down at the piano, what a treat it was! She could really make that piano dance and sing, as would those who would gather ‘round.

Kay also took great joy in her embroidery of various pieces, which she often shared with her family. Reading, shopping and bingo also kept her very busy and entertained all throughout her years. Kay always was ready and willing to join her sisters and friends for a fine dining experience, on any given night.

Kay had always remained a very active person. Right up until about two weeks ago, Kay had continued on with her daily routines.

A very kind woman, with a beautiful smile and a kind word for all, lived and cherished every one of her ninety nine years.

Sadly ,Kay was predeceased by her parents, Charles and Catherine, her husband Edward and her siblings Agnes Clark, Grace McArdle, Irene Buckley and John "Jack" McHugh.

Kay was the devoted sister of Ann J. McHugh of Reading (formerly of Woburn) and dear sister-in-law of Gerald Buckley of Woburn. Also lovingly survived by her nieces and nephews.

Ralph L. Hefler, father of Karen Hefler-DAC 

It is with great sadness that we announce that Ralph Leslie Hefler, 90, passed away at home in the presence of his loving family on February 14, 2017. Ralph was born and raised in Lynn, MA, the son of James and Margaret (MacDonald) Hefler. He graduated from Lynn English High School and immediately enlisted in the US Navy where he proudly served from 1944-1947, including a tour of duty in Okinawa, Japan. When he returned home after the war, Ralph met and married his forever Valentine, the late Barbara (Scott) Hefler. The two made their home and raised their family in Marblehead. He was an extraordinary father to his children, an ideal father figure to his oldest grandson, Erik and a role model for his youngest grandson, Bill. Nothing was more important to him than his family. He was at his happiest at family gatherings for the holidays, cookouts and any other occasion that brought his family close. He retired from a long career with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, finishing in the Department of Industrial Accidents, where he made many friendships and was highly respected for his work ethic. Ralph loved fishing and had a rod in-hand whenever possible. His favorite activity was sitting in his yacht in the pond at his sons house. He loved people, had a wicked sense of humor and a generous heart; he always lent a hand to those who needed help. He will be deeply missed by all of those whose lives he touched. Ralph leaves his children, Christine (Hefler) Sandgren of Marblehead, his son Scott Hefler and his wife Karen Jean (Woodfin) Hefler of South Hampton, NH, and daughter Karen Hefler of Marblehead, his grandsons Erik Andrew Sandgren of Marblehead and William Hefler of South Hampton, NH, his sister Shirley Bond and her husband Ray of Bristol Rhode Island, his sister-in-law Doris Hefler of Nahant, his cousins Fred Sullivan of Marblehead and Patricia Eggermann of Huntington, NY, and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by brothers Frederick and Russell (Buddy) Hefler. He also leaves cherished friends Priscilla Stocker and Raymond Orne. Ralphs family is grateful for the kind support and guidance of Care Dimensions Hospice. At Ralphs request, there will be no services. Donations may be made in Ralphs memory to the Home for Little Wanderers, 10 Guest Street, Boston, MA, 02135 or the Wounded Warrior Project, PO Box 758517, Topeka, Kansas 66675-8517. Fish on Dad!
