Kathleen Germann

January 2, 1940 ~ June 30, 2023 (age 83) 83 Years Old


Kathleen (Kay) Germann died on June 30 at Pine Haven Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Philmont, NY. Kay was a loving wife, mother, aunt, and grandmother.

She was born Jan 2, 1940, in Mineola, NY. She married her husband Carl (who predeceased her in 2008) in 1962. Kay and Carl moved to the Hudson Valley in 1970 and opened a flower shop in Poughkeepsie in 1977. They continued to own the shop until Carl’s retirement in 2006. Kay worked with special needs children at Boces in Dutchess County for over a decade, until she retired in 2018.

Kay moved to Copake in 2010 and quickly became an active member of the Knit Club of Hudson Valley and a volunteer at the Roeliff Jansen Community Library in Hillsdale, NY. Throughout her life she enjoyed bowling, knitting, and gardening, and she never forgot a birthday. Family and friends could always expect a card or a phone call on their birthday.

She is survived by her three children, Kathleen Germann of Manhattan, Carl Germann (Fred Nachbaur) also of Manhattan, and Suzanne Germann (Nik Prachand) of Chicago; three granddaughters, Vivian Nachbaur, Opal Prachand, and Annika Prachand; and extended family including William and Jane Germann of East Meadow, NY, and Ray and Susan Germann of Rhinebeck, NY; as well as many nieces, nephews, and great nieces and nephews.
