The late Howard and Clara Belmonte Graber raised their daughter Kathy, who was known as Kathy Graber. She was born on the 9th of March in 1954, and she received her high school diploma from Mechanicville in the year 1972.
After that, she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from SUNY Albany, where she had previously studied. Both of Kathy’s previous jobs in the field of technology—at Allied Signal in Green Island and at GE Corporate employee benefits in Schenectady—provided her with opportunities that she relished to a great extent. Kathy’s life revolved mostly around her husband, their children, and her grandkids; she placed a high priority on her family.
She was known to attend services at a number of different houses of worship, including Corpus Christi and Assumption-St. Paul. Her husband of 46 years, Joseph Urkevich, as well as their children Jolyne (Kevin Prudente) Olah of Winhall, Vermont, and David (Danielle) Urkevich of Ballston Lake, are among the members of her family that are still alive. Grandchildren – Brielle, Claire, Hannah, David Jr. and Owen.
Her brothers Howard Graber and Gary Graber both reside in their respective cities: Clarksville, Tennessee, for Howard, and Gansevoort, New York, for Gary. Lori is Howard’s wife. In addition to being reunited with her own parents, Kathy will also be greeted in the hereafter by her departed son-in-law Aaron Olah. Aaron died before Kathy did.
