Kathy Romanko (nee Haffner) passed away at home on May 14, 2018. She is mourned and survived by her husband Lawrence (Lorne), son Lorne Jr., daughter Vanessa, and her sister Elizabeth McInall. She was the daughter of Adam and Julianna Haffner (predeceased). Kathy was born in Montreal, but she grew up predominantly in Toronto. She married Lorne in Toronto in 1959, and subsequently, in 1960, they moved to Sudbury, Lorne’s hometown, where Lorne Jr. and Vanessa were born. Kathy worked throughout her life at various businesses including, Crown Life Insurance. In the course of time, she joined the faculty of Cambrian College where she taught multiple subjects, including the medical secretarial program which she greatly enhanced. While she enjoyed her extensive career, her first priority was her children and her husband, to whom she was devoted. In addition to being the most wonderful, joy-filled person, she was a uniquely creative, loving, caring, and generous person. Kathy, we will miss your sparkling, sky-blue eyes and your sunshine laughter. You gave us extraordinary love. Although our hearts are filled with the love you gave us, we have a devastating void in our lives.
In keeping with Kathy’s wishes, there will be no visitation and no service. Donations to your preferred charity would be most appreciated.
