Kathryn E. Grimes

March 15, 1949 — June 4, 2022

Kathryn E. Grimes, 73, of New Cumberland, passed away on Saturday, June 4, 2022 in UPMC Pinnacle Harrisburg Hospital.

Kathy was an amazing person, a true angel on earth. She loved her children, grandchildren and dog with her whole heart and would’ve done anything for anyone. She was fun loving and made everyone laugh, and her friends and family have many endearing stories to tell about the years they knew her. Those memories and her love will continue to shine in the lives of the people who were blessed to know her. She was a retired Registered Nurse with Harrisburg Hospital’s Women’s Health; a graduate of Cedar Cliff High School, Camp Hill and Harrisburg Area Community College School of Nursing; and a member of Baughman Memorial United Methodist Church, New Cumberland.

Kathryn was born in Harrisburg, the daughter of the late Gerald E. and Mary E. (McGrath) Kaufman and was the widow of David G. Grimes.

She is survived by her children, Scott D. Grimes and wife Heather of Coronado, CA and Kiersha N. Whitehead and husband Brett of Williamsport, PA; her sister Sara Anne Kaufman of Mechanicsburg; five grandchildren, Lilly, Carter, Alexis, Adara and Madison; and her canine companion, Duncan.

A Celebration of Kathryn’s Life will be held from 5 – 7 pm on Friday, July 15, 2022 at Nick’s 114 Café, 114 Bridge St. New Cumberland.
