Katie M. Kelleher (Dwelly), age 44, passed away on Tuesday, July 26, 2022, after a sudden illness. Katie was born on May 26, 1978 to Thomas and Beverly (Connor) Kelleher. She was a 1996 graduate of Longmeadow High School and a 2000 graduate of the University of Massachusetts College of Nursing. Katie was a loving and devoted mother to Elizabeth and Dillon. Katie was also a compassionate and dedicated nurse who worked tirelessly to care for her patients, including as an ICU nurse during the COVID-19 pandemic. Although soft-spoken, Katie was known for her dry humor and quick wit. She was enormously proud of her children, loved being in and near water, and took care of everyone around her. Katie’s passing has left her family and friends heartbroken. In addition to her beloved children Elizabeth and Dillon, she is survived by her parents, Tom and Bev Kelleher, her sisters Laurie Wood (Tyler) and Colleen Ingham (Dave), her brother Matthew Kelleher (Marlee), her nieces, nephew, many aunts, uncles and cousins, her former husband Scott Dwelly, and her dear friends, including Linda Dwelly and Oscar Camacho Hernandez. Katie was predeceased by her grandparents Roger and Patricia Connor and Frederick and Margaret Kelleher. A funeral service is planned for Monday, August 1, 2022, at St Mary’s Church, 519 Longmeadow St., Longmeadow, MA at 11:00 am.
