Katherine Virginia (Thomas) Gadaleta
Katherine Virginia Gadaleta, 56, of Middletown, DE passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 6, 2017 at her home surrounded by family. Kathy was born April 3, 1961 in Dover, DE to John and Dolores Thomas. She worked with children with special needs in the Christina School District for most of her life and loved what she did. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy and she spent a lot of her time enjoying life with them. From beach trips, going to Dutch Wonderland, to zoos, and much more. She's done it all with these kids and made so many memories for them to cherish. Kathy was also a great cook and could make some of the best meals from scratch. She was an amazing woman and touched the lives of so many around her, always caring and giving. She will deeply be missed by many. We love you. She is preceded in death by her son Michael Gadaleta and her father John Thomas. She is survived by her loving husband Cosmo; one daughter, Alana Reed and her husband Justin Reed; one son, Nicholas Gadaleta; four grandchildren, Michael and Leah Reed and Nicholas and Gianna Gadaleta; her mother, Dolores Thomas; her two brothers, John Thomas and his wife Ruth, Ed Thomas and his wife Anne; her sister, Cindy Thomas; and many uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
