Catherine (Kitty) Haldy passed away on June 25, 2019 at Hospice of Mount Joy following a brief illness.
Born on March 3, 1923 in Lancaster, Pa, she was the daughter of John H. and Barbara (Bleacher) Wein.
After graduating from McCaskey High School in 1940, she was employed for several years by the Draft Board during World War II.
She was the loving wife of Richard Eckman who was killed during World War II and James M. Haldy who passed away in 2001 after 55 years of marriage.
Kitty was, for many years, an active member of Bethany Presbyterian Church, serving several times on the Board of Deacons
She was also a long time member of P.E.O. Philanthropic Organization.
She was an avid sports fan all her life, with a particular fondness for Penn State, the Dallas Cowboys and most especially her beloved N.Y. Yankees. She enjoyed flowers, gardening, animals, reading and crossword puzzles. She loved celebrating holidays with her family and greatly anticipated the annual family vacation in Avalon N.J.

Words cannot adequately express the wonderful mother, grandmother and great grandmother Kitty Haldy was. We admired her, loved her immensely and had such gratitude for her presence in our lives. We will forever miss her.
