Obituary: Kathleen Blando, 66, of Milford

Kathleen Blando, 66, of Milford, passed away peacefully on November 27.

Daughter of John and Rose Miller, she was born on April 9, 1948 in Bridgeport, CT.

Kathleen was a stay at home mom and a PTA president in the past. Although she had many occupations over the years, she most enjoyed being a co-owner of K&J Clubhouse, a local daycare which she owned with her close friend, the late Janet Preiss.

Years after she had retired still spoke fondly of her daycare ‘children’ and shared memorable stories with her friends and family. She enjoyed watching her children and grandchildren play sports at the high school and collegiate level.

She will be remembered for her love of playing board games with her grandchildren and swimming at the YMCA. During her illness, she greatly enjoyed keeping up with friends and family on Facebook.
