She was born in Bedford Ma to the late Barry and Kathleen (O'Connor) Meade. Kitty was preceded in death by her beloved daughter Corinne "Kim" and son-in-law David Prentiss, and her brothers Edward and William.
Beloved wife of Richard R. Corazzini, mother of Richard M. of Lexington Ma; Jeffrey and wife Lina of Chelmsford Ma; Todd M. of Antrim NH and Scott M. and wife Rubina of Holden Ma. She is survived by her two sisters Eileen VonBirgelen and Maureen Korzelius of Baltimore Maryland. She is a grandmother (Même) to Heather M. Corazzini of Boston and Thomas and his wife MK Corazzini and a great grandmother to their son Charles Robert Corazzini of Boston Ma. She leaves behind her forever friends Mitzy Obrien of Florida and Theresa Eaton of Lexington Ma.
Kitty and Dick were classmates both graduating in 1950 from Lexington H.S.. Thanksgiving Day of 2018 was their 66th wedding Anniversary! They lived in Lexington for 33 years moved to Stow Ma for 15 years and then to her much loved log cabin in the woods in Antrim NH for 18 years.
She was a generous individual who loved cooking and entertaining and who was passionate about helping those in need. Kitty also enjoyed decorating and ran her own Antique business called "Captiva Antiques" out of an old barn that she and Dick restored in Stow Ma. She was voted "best dressed" in high school and all would agree she maintained this title throughout her life! Kitty was not just pretty, she was humble and kind, with true internal beauty! Over the years while raising her five children, Kitty started her own Orchid Flower business for fun and to augment the already established Corazzini Brothers Carnation Growers her husband owned and operated with his brother. She was smart, quick with a smile, generous, and fun loving. She "employed" her sons to drive/sort flowers, learn to think for themselves, and instilled a deep work ethic with a caring touch. She and Dick raised their children with a passion for outdoor activities. Kitty being a figure skater taught them to skate, gave them confidence to ski and enjoyed riding bikes to stay healthy ("one more lap" is a term I think they all remember!). Her children remember her as a kind, giving, gentle hearted women who above all was a caring mother who always encouraged them to pursue their goals.
Kitty was an avid skater, she taught her children and the neighbor's children to skate at the Hayden arena. She was part of the early days of the Haydenettes! She enjoyed synchronized skating and the comradery and friendships it helped build
