ENOSBURG FALLS- Kathleen Lee Marshia, age 63, passed away after a courageous 11-year battle with cancer on Wednesday, November 9, 2022 surrounded by her loving family.
She was born in St. Albans on April 19, 1959 to the late Carroll Sr. and Eleanor (Lakey) Billado.
Kathy grew up in Richford, attended Richford Elementary School, and graduated from Enosburg Falls High School in 1977.

Once her children were in school Kathy drove school bus for Terry Wright for many years, and then later went on to work for immigration. Kathy looked forward to trips with her family to the ocean, dancing, gambling, playing cards, camping, and being out and about shopping or getting a bite to eat. She took pride in her clean home, enjoyed cooking and baking, and spending time with her friends, family, and grandchildren- she would do anything for them. She had an unmatched talent for making everyone feel special and welcomed. Kathy loved her family, cherished the small things, and lived life to the fullest!
