Kathleen Panaggio, 64, of Newton, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones on Saturday, September 19, 2020.


Kathleen was the daughter of the late Jesse P. and Rosalie Guilford, and beloved wife of Pasquale “Pat" Panaggio, to whom she was married for 45 years. Loving mother to Pat Jr., Michael and Gina Panaggio. 


She is the beloved sister of the late Jesse "Billy" Guilford, Paula Lacroix, Nancy McKinney, the late Donna Torchio, Diane Shepherd, Charlene Standish, Joey Guilford, Jackie Guilford, Jimmy Guilford, Bobby Guilford and Joan London.


She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, whom she dearly loved. 


Known by her nickname "Kitty," she had the most beautiful smile and infectious laugh. You wouldn't find her without a cup of tea or her signature lipstick. She worked for many years at Newton South High School and Lasell College and was beloved by students. She brought joy to those around her and loved her family unconditionally.

We invite family and close friends for a graveside service on Saturday, September 26, 2020 in Calvary Cemetery, Waltham. Around 10:45AM, cars should line up inside the main (High St) gate to the cemetery. And we will leave in procession for the grave at 11AM.


At the graveside, due to COVID-19, please abide by social distancing guidelines and wear a mask. Flowers are welcome and can be sent to Magni Funeral Home, Newton.
