Katherine Anne Tollin passed away on Monday July 9, 2018 with her daughter by her side. Preceded in death by her husband Max Tollin and brother Richard Blaney.
Anne was a dear and devoted mother to Alison; beloved and cherished grandmother of Tyler and Hannah; loving sister of Carol Wolff, Karen Carr and her husband Charles. Anne suffered through many a illness, but through it all she was one tough cookie. She touched the lives of many, gave selflessly, was a wonderful friend, and never failed to tell you if she didn’t like your hair. She will be truly missed.
A memorial service will be announced at a later date. Please feel free to donate (if you wish) to any charity close to your heart.
If you strike a thorn or rose,
If it hails or if it snows,
'Taint no use to sit an' whine
When the fish ain't on your line;
Bait your hook an' keep a-tryin'--
When the weather kills your crop,
Though 'tis work to reach the top,
S'pose you're out o' ev'ry dime,
Gittin' broke ain't any crime;
Tell the world you're feelin' prime--
When it looks like all is up,
Drain the sweetness from the cup,
See the wild birds on the wing,
Hear the bells that sweetly ring,
When you feel like singin', sing--
-Frank L. Stanton (1857-1927)
