On July 17, 2019, our chapter lost a dedicated supporter and friend. Kathryn Risotti passed away at the age of 56. Kathryn was a Business Partner with our organization through her role at Clean-O-Rama. She served as a member of the NNECERAPPA board and was a valuable member of the ERAPPA 2018 host committee. She regularly went above and beyond to foster the Institutional Member and Business Partner relationships at both the chapter and regional level. In addition to presenting education sessions at many chapter meetings, Kathryn was always willing to share her expertise and knowledge through on-site training sessions or one-day seminars. Kathryn’s optimism, love of life, and love of dancing will be fondly remembered by many. We will miss her dearly and are grateful for her service and dedication to our chapter’s mission.
