AUBURN - Kathleen A. Morrissey-Brosnihan, 78, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on September 5, 2022. She is reunited with her beloved son, Matthew, who died in 2003.

Kathleen was born in Worcester on January 22, 1944, daughter to the late T. Frances and Helen (O’Connor) Morrissey.
