Kathi S. Curioli


March 3, 1958 ~ November 25, 2017

Kathi S. Curioli, 59, of Norwalk, passed away Saturday afternoon surrounded by her family. Her passing was peaceful, as she held her boys’ hands, with the sun setting and a light breeze in her face. Kathi drifted off to sleep as she embarked on her next journey to join her husband, the late Paul D. Curioli.

Kathi is survived by her two loving sons, Paul A. Curioli of Norwalk and Nicholas J. Curioli of Baltimore, and her sweet grandson who gave her so much joy, Brady. Born on March 3, 1958, in Port Chester, New York, Kathi was the daughter of “Mimi” McDermott and sister to Tammy Truscello and late husband Lenny, Kristi and George Llera, Billy and Casey Beadle, Michael Beadle, and the late Bobby Beadle. She cherished her relationships with her favorite aunt, Carol Peterson, brother-in-law Larry Curioli, and sister-in-law Geraldine Sweeney. She was also Aunt Kathi to many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Kathi’s favorite time was when her kids were at Naramake Elementary School, where she was the Volunteer Coordinator. She also taught religious education, alongside her late husband Paul, at St. Thomas the Apostle. Kathi loved cooking and tinkering around the house. When asked what she was doing, she would always reply “stuff and things” because she was always doing something.

Kathi always said her greatest accomplishments were her sons Paul and Nick, and was so lucky to have such a wonderful life. She said she only got luckier with her grandson Brady, who she adored.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, December 1st, at 10:00 AM at St. Thomas the Apostle Church, 203 East Avenue, Norwalk. Interment will follow in Riverside Cemetery, 81 Riverside Avenue, Norwalk.

Friends may call on Thursday, November 30, from 4:00 to 8:00 PM at the Collins Funeral Home, 92 East Avenue, Norwalk.

The family asks that contributions be made to St. Thomas the Apostle Church, 203 East Avenue, Norwalk, 06855, in memory of Kathi S. Curioli.

  • Kathi conducted herself with such grace and dignity at all the City remembrances of the awful events of 9/11. I became Norwalk’s Mayor just after 9/11 and we developed a close bond as she found inner strength to carry her grief and we searched together for ways the City could memorialize Paul and the other victims of that tragic day. She was very involved in the selection of the site we chose in Vets Park for our Norwalk 9/11 Memorial and help make sure that the dedication ceremony was accomplished with reverence and respect. Also, my son was friends with Nick starting at Nathan Hale and that also brought us into contact often. I came to regard Kathi as an inspiring figure and a friend. My condolences and thoughts go to Nick and her family. All of us who knew her in Norwalk will never forget her inspiring life. I deeply regret I was out of the state and could not attend her calling hours last week.

  • I am truly sorry for the loss and pain that Paul, Nicholas and the Curioli family and friends are feeling because of losing Kathi recently in death, way too soon. Most of us have had to endure the sorrow of losing a loved one in death. What helped me the most was prayer and faith in God’s promises like found here at 1 Corinthians 15: 26 and it tells us: “And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” Isaiah 33:24 guarantees us: “And no resident will say “I am sick,” ever again. God’s kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises, including the resurrection. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. (John 5:28, John 6:40, John 11:23-25) Jehovah wants you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. Psalm 34:18
    I will keep you in my prayers
