Our beautiful sister, Kathryn Anne Taussig, formerly of Stratford, ON and daughter of the late David N. and Miriam K. Root, passed away at her home in Lenox, Massachusetts on Thursday, April 23, 2015, surrounded by her immediate family: husband Elyakim (Peter) and daughter Elena. A brilliant pianist and musician, a loving wife and best friend to Peter, an incredible mother to Elena, Kathy was an inspiration to all who knew her. She was a sweet and gentle spirit yet strong in her commitment to celebrate her dear ones, her home and to take charge of her own life. Kathy possessed a keen spirituality, hope, inner peace and confidence, remaining courageous to the very end. A beautiful person, inside and out, she greatly enriched the lives of all who knew her. For over four years Kathryn has been battling cancer but even until the time of her death she continued to have the best interests of others at heart. She is now at peace, no longer suffering from the pain which often accompanies this terrible disease. A family celebration of life was held on Wednesday, May 6, 2015 at Conningsby Cemetery in Erin Township, followed by a lovely reception hosted by her cousins. Besides her husband Elyakim (Peter) and daughter Elena Taussig, Kathryn is fondly remembered and will be deeply missed by her sisters Miriam E. Lekx (John) of Sebringville, ON, Helen Harrison of Stratford, brother John A. Root (Gail) of Rockwood, ON, their families and friends.
