Kathleen Marie (Kilpatrick) Knox

April 14, 1953 — April 9, 2020

Kathleen Marie (Kilpatrick) Knox age 66 and long-time Littleton resident, passed away on Thursday, April 9, 2020 at Emerson Hospital in Concord. She was the devoted and beloved wife of 48 years to Joseph S. Knox.

Kathleen Marie Knox was born on April 14, 1953 in Haver de Grace, Maryland, a daughter of the late Ralph and Joan (Durant) Kilpatrick. Kathy graduated from Littleton High School in 1971. On April 14, 1972 she married her sweetheart Joe at St. Anne's Church in Littleton. Together they raised their loving family and became both active and supportive in their much-loved town of Littleton.

Kathy was truly a force to be reckoned with in real estate. Besides her family and friends, real estate was her passion. She knew early on in life that it was her dream career. Her passion and caring not only helped her clients achieve their dreams of home ownership, but also fostered life long friendships.

If you knew her, she probably warmly invited you into her home like family. She was your most honest critic, loudest cheerleader, and most trusted advisor. Her generosity knew no limits, even to her own detriment.

Family was the center of her life. Kathy cherished the time with her family especially her grandchildren and traveling to visit her son and his husband. She was the loudest of sports fans. When it came to the Pats, Sox, and Bruins you could hear her for miles routing them on.

Along with her husband Joe, she is survived by her children, Stephanie and husband Stephen Jahnle of Littleton, Kimberly of Littleton, and Jonathan and husband Brian Thomas of Tynemouth, England, and grandchildren Jax, Riley, Caelen and JoJo.

Family and friends will gather to honor and remember Kathy for a period of visitation and celebration of her life from 4:00 pm until 8:00 pm on Friday evening, July 17, 2020 in the Badger Funeral Home. 347 King Street, Littleton. Her graveside service will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday July 18, 2020 in Westlawn Cemetery, New Estate Rd., Littleton. Please observe social distancing guidelines and face masks are respectfully required.
