Born Dorothy Lang Tulloch in Elizabeth, NJ on March 10, 1926 she was renamed Kathryn after her mother died following her birth. She graduated from Harvard's Radcliff College in 1947 having lived through the depression and WWII.  She leaves her loving family; sons Owen of Woodbury NY and Peter of Gardner MA and daughter Mary Lloyd and her husband Doug of Milford MA as well as four grandchildren and one great grandson. Sarge was devoted to her children and to her profession. She cared very deeply for her students and they loved her in turn. She had a keen interest in history and languages and was an avid reader. She loved birds and dogs. Nothing made her happier than seeing her children and her students succeed in life.
