Kathleen J. Vittore was born on September 30, 1951 in Brooklyn, NY, then traveled the world along side with her husband while in the US Air Force. She settled down in Panama City, FL in August 1981. Kathleen arrived at the gates of Heaven on November 8, 2020.
Kathleen was a truly virtuous woman who found great joy and purpose in life in serving and loving others. In difficult times, she could stretch much from little and shared unselfishly. With her radiant smile and contagious laughter she was a unifying strength and the family encourager. Kathy was an incredible gift to her family and will be forever remembered in the hearts of all who knew her. She loved going on cruises with her best friend/soul mate/husband Michael. She also enjoyed spending her time at the casinos, but her heart will always be when she spent time with her family. Kathleen worked her way up from a dishwasher to head manager at Callaway Elementary School over a 28 year career. Kathy always had a shoulder to cry on and always had an ear for good news and bad.
Kathleen expressed an unwavering commitment to her family. She is preceded in death by her parents, Theodore and Doris Wolff as well as her sisters, Doris and Patricia.
She is survived by her husband, Michael Vittore; sons and daughters in law, Michael, Bobby and Bernadette, as well as Anthony and Brandy; and lastly by her sister, Mary Sewell. Kathleen is also survived and blessed through her 10 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews, and extended family and friends.
