Visitation at Funeral Home
Obituary of Kathleen Hannan
Kathleen A. Hannan, 76, of Flanders, N.J., passed away on Friday, September 7, 2018. Kathy was born on July 22, 1942, in Chicago, Il. She has lived in Flanders for the past year and previously lived in Morris Plains, N.J.
She loved classical music, especially the opera, and enjoyed traveling the world with her husband of 45 years, Mike. Throughout her life, she found joy and relaxation spending time with family and friends at her summer home in Higgins Beach, Maine.
Kathy was a longtime member of The Masterwork Chorus of Morristown, where she served on the board of directors. For two decades she ran Masterwork's Summer Sings program—an outreach to local singers that was also her brain child. Her passion for choral singing led her in 2010 to co-found the New Jersey Choral Consortium, an association created to foster collaboration among choral groups.
Kathy is survived by her husband, Michael Hannan, her children, Maureen Hannan, Lynn Clark, Michael Hannan, Jr., Kevin Hannan, Lisa Hannan, Timothy Hannan, and Kathryn Jubboori; 16 grandchildren; and her brother, Thomas Houle, and his wife Terry. She was predeceased by her parents, Romeo and Mary Houle.
