Kathleen Eloise Crawford was born on May 21st, 1951 in Springfield, New Jersey.
From a young age she dreamed of living in New York City, which she realized by attending the Fashion Institute of Technology, earning her Associate's Degree in 1971. She spent the next thirty years in New York beginning with the pursuit of a career in fashion design with her own clothing line. Later, she cultivated her passions for interior design, history and antique curation which brought her and her family to Litchfield, Connecticut. These interests were put to good use with her contributions to the Litchfield Historical Society and Garden Club.
Kathleen will be loved and remembered by her children, Sam and Charlotte Crawford, as having shaped their lives with boundless love, unconditional affection, and the singular beauty with which her talent and taste could create a home.
