Obituary of Kathryn M. Bergmann – Press & Sun-Bulletin

After a brief illness, Kathryn Marie “Bah” Bergmann, passed away peacefully on July 2, 2022, at the age of 79. Kathy was born in Albany, NY on September 1, 1942. She was predeceased by her parents, James Jermaine Kirkwood and Wilhelmina (Wolfrets) Kirkwood. She is survived by her three sons, John (Pam) Bergmann, Wetumpka, Al, Craig (Karen) Bergmann, Owego NY, Robert (Tina) Bergmann, Beaufort, SC; his beloved sister, Barbara Burris Duncan, Dallas, TX; his grandchildren, Nicole (Keegan Evans), Libby, CJ (Kourtney Clark), Erin and Jenna; his nephew and nieces, Steve, Beth (Russell), Cherie, Karen; sister-in-law, Diana. And finally, his furry companion Bella. Kathy’s 40-year professional career ranged from working as a receptionist at a local doctor’s office in Owego, NY, to being a secretary at the Tioga County Boys & Girls Club, then to General Electric and Ametek Aerospace as an assembler where she eventually retired. Kathy was an avid novel reader; she loved to travel and meet new people who recently went on a cruise to Alaska just a few weeks ago. Bah was her grandchildren’s biggest fan, whether it was cheering them on at their high school sporting events or just watching them grow into young adults. She always looked forward to the annual Superbowl party and we allowed her to come back even though she was a big fan of Tom Brady. Kathy has made so many good friends in her life starting at Eastwood High School in Syracuse, NY (Marilyn, Nina and Paula), the friends she met living in Owego (Gloria and Rich, Joanne and Tom, Margaret and Roy, Barb and Chuck, Gary and Carol, Bill and Carol) and the friends she made at work (Nancy and Gail) and her traveling companion (Jane) among many others. She so loved visiting her extended family, the King’s, Smith’s and DiPonzio’s. The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at ICU and USC at Wilson Medical Center as well as their primary physician at UHS (Dr. Balguri). In accordance with Kathy’s wishes, no funeral service will be held. The family will have a celebration of life for family and close friends. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Stray Haven Humane Society, 184 Shepherd Rd, Waverly, NY 14892.
