LINNEY, Kathleen (Katie), 51 of Castro Valley, passed away unexpectedly in the early hours of October 3, 2012 in her home, of natural causes. She was born on August 7, 1961 to Edward and Cornelia Linney in San Francisco, and attended schools in San Bruno. She was preceded in death by her father, Edward (1995), and her oldest sister, Joni Bradbury (2006). She is survived by her two cherished sons, Kevin and Eddie of Hawaii and Montana, respectively. She is also survived by her mother, Cornelia; sisters, Valerie Johnson and Laura Pica; and brothers, Edward (Ted), Brian, Neil and Paul Linney. She was a fun and loving aunt to many nieces and nephews, and a treasured friend to old and new friends alike. Katie had a love of the outdoors and loved to fish. Her family meant everything to her and she wanted little more out of life than to spend quality time with her boys. She possessed the rare quality of doing good for its own sake and was willing help anyone in need. Katie was fiercely loyal to those she loved. She is irreplaceable and will be deeply missed by all who were fortunate enough to count her among their family or friends. God bless and keep her. A memorial mass will be held at Our Lady of Grace Church in Castro Valley on Friday Oct. 12, at 2:30 p.m.
