Obituary of Kathryn Marie Sawyer

Please share a memory of Kathryn to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Kathryn (Kiki) Sawyer, 65, of Cortlandt Manor, NY passed away on December 30, 2022, at home in Cortlandt Manor. She was born January 31, 1957, in Peekskill, NY, the daughter of the late Andrew and Anne Kansky. 

Kiki was an avid skier and enjoyed golf and long walks with her husband Chris. She was known for her laughter and enjoyment of dancing in the kitchen. Her gardens were a source of great pride. 

She was happiest when spending time with her husband, children, and grandchildren outdoors. She was quick with a joke and known for her “world-class” carrot cake and cheesecake. 

Kathryn worked as a personal assistant to a children’s author for 20+ years; she was involved in the editing and proofreading process which allowed her to use her creative talents. 

Kathryn is survived by her husband Chris, daughter Tara Mantell and her husband Ross, son Tyler Sawyer and his wife Jessie, her brother Andrew (Dick) Kansky, two grandchildren Joselyn and Garrett Mantell, a niece and several nephews. She was predeceased by her sister, Barbara Orowitz, and brother William Kansky.
