Memorials

Katie frequently works with John-Lawrence, Chapman Cole & Gleason, and Doane Beal & Ames funeral homes and area churches including Our Lady of the Assumption, Our Lady of Victory, Christ the King, St. Patrick’s and St. Elizabeth Ann Seaton.  She’s most often found singing for funerals, but she can provide comforting background music for visiting hours or a memorial service as well.  She has also played for Doane, Beal & Ames’s annual holiday memorial service, the VNA of Cape Cod’s bi-annual service, and has sung graveside including at the National Cemetery in Bourne.10682254_663614803759370_7882728968372073849_o
