Kathleen Karen (nee Sudol) O’Callaghan, 70, of Berlin, MD, formerly of Ringwood, passed away on October 7, 2021 after a brief illness.
Born in Passaic, Mrs. O’Callaghan was raised in Ringwood, where she then raised her family and had lived in Berlin, MD for the last fifteen years. She was a graduate of the nursing school at Seton Hall University and went on to a long career as a Licensed Practical Nurse. A loving and vibrant woman, she loved spending time with family and friends, hosting get togethers and cooking for them and had a deep love for animals. She was a member of a number of knitting groups and donated her time to both hospice as well as the Church Mouse Thrift Shop at St. Paul Episcopal Church in Berlin, MD. A truly compassionate woman who fiercely loved her family and friends, Kate was an incredible human who impacted so many. She always put others first and there are no words to express how much she will be missed by those who knew and loved her. May she rest in the sweetest peace.
Mrs. O’Callaghan is survived by her husband, Neil O’Callaghan, formerly of West Milford, and his family; by her three loved children: Sharon Worth of Nutley, Coleen Torsiello and her husband, Joe, of Pompton Plains and Jason Kurtz of Florida; by her three dear brothers: Stuart Sudol and his wife, Dawn, of Ringwood, Glen Sudol of Newfoundland and Brad Sudol and his wife, Katie, of North Smithfield, RI; her four loving and cherished grandchildren: Brendan Worth-Ruiz, Madison Torsiello, Nicholas Torsiello and Emma Torsiello; and her treasured nephew Chad Sudol and adored niece Brittany Tracy.
