Killington Active Seniors celebrates 90th birthday of Kathy Kirchner

The Killington Active Seniors celebrated the 90th birthday of Kathy Kirchner at its weekly luncheon held at the Lookout on Feb. 15. Kathy, although a new resident of Killington, was a season pass holder at Killington into her early 80s along with her late husband, Ted. Growing up in Connecticut, she became a teacher and eloped with Ted on Christmas Eve, in Stowe, over 60 years ago. Stowe holds special memories for the Kirchner family but Killington is a favorite, too, where Kathy now lives with her daughter Bonnie and enjoys visits from her other daughter, Peggy, son Eric and their families.

Always an admirer of Sonia Henie, Kathy, as an adult became an accomplished ice dancer and teacher. This contributed to the beautiful and graceful skier that Kathy was along with her great technical skills on the slopes.
