Catherine Kanlong

August 21, 2001 — July 26, 2020

Cate Kanlong passed away suddenly Sunday, July 26, 2020 at her home in Cold Spring. She was eighteen years old.

Cate was born at Hudson Valley Hospital on August 21, 2001 and grew up in the village of Cold Spring. A 2019 graduate of Haldane High School and the Northern Westchester BOCES’s Cosmetology program, she obtained her cosmetology license shortly after graduation and began her career with Vaza Salon in Ossining, New York. She was recently promoted to senior associate and floor stylist and loved the creativity and energy of her craft. She was a rising talented hair and makeup artist whose promising future was cut startlingly short. Cate’s beautiful smile and spark of life will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

Cate is the beloved and treasured daughter of her mother, Christina Fanelli of Cold Spring, Stepdad-to- be Mick Daly, of Arigna, Ireland, and her father, Henry Kanlong and Stepmom Gina Domenico of Fishkill.

She is also the much loved sister to Joe Kanlong, of Cold Spring, and Sam Kanlong, of Rhinebeck. She is predeceased by her brother Zachary, of TwentyNine Palms, California.

Cate is also survived by her loving grandparents: Joe and Lillian Fanelli, of Yorktown Heights; Jorge and Durcinia Kanlong of Salinas, Ecuador; Attracta Wynne of Arigna, Ireland; and Pauric Sweeney of Ballinamore, Ireland. Cate was blessed with a very large and loving group of aunts, uncles and cousins here in the New York area, and in counties Roscommon and Leitrim, Ireland.
