Kathy was born to William Ralph Eichlin and Marjorie (Carney) Eichlin on July 25, 1948. She graduated from Allentown Central Catholic High School in 1966. Blessed with musical talent, she graduated from the College of Misericordia in Dallas, PA with a Bachelor of Music Education in 1970.
Kathy is survived by her wonderful husband James of 52 years; her children Jason, Jonathan, and Jeremy; her daughters-in-law Erin and Jessica; the absolute loves of her life, her grandchildren Logan, Caelie and Cerys; her extended family and many friends.
Above all, Kathy loved her family, life, people, and music. She was touched by many as well as touched those she knew. She especially loved working with children and spent most of her life doing this as a music teacher. A double lung transplant survivor of 10 years, Kathy spent much of her time helping other lung transplant patients. She will be missed by many, but her song will live on.
