Kathleen M. Meskell, age 78, of Concord formerly of Belmont, Massachusetts passed away Tuesday, August 18, 2020, with her husband and children by her side.
She was the daughter of the late Dr. Henry E. and Ellen (Buckley) Groden of Belmont. Kathleen was one of four children; the late Mary J. Webb, the late Monsignor Michael F. Groden and survived by her twin sister Ellen Dalton of Hancock, N.H. She was the beloved wife of John Francis Meskell and devoted mother of five children; Kathleen Easley of Wellfleet, John F. Meskell III of Winthrop, Jeffrey E. Meskell of Winthrop, Rachel E. Stiglets of Winthrop and Ellen E. Meskell of Concord. She was also grandmother to her four granddaughters; Sydney J. Stiglets, Madison M. Stiglets, Sophia R. Easley and Emma G. Easley, and the adored Aunt Kate to many nieces and nephews.
She loved summers in Scituate, gardening and dogs; most especially her black lab Oakley and bernese mountain dog Brady. Kathleen was a vibrant soul, one who literally lit up the room whenever she entered. She was a proud and dignified woman who had a passion for life, friends, family and loved to entertain.
