Kathryn (Manos) Miceli, “Kathy,” passed away unexpectedly on October 7, 2018. She was 67. Kathy was born and raised in Canton, OH. She was a student of Oakwood High School, where she graduated in 1969, was an honor student, cheerleader, and A ‘Capella choir member. In 1973, she graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics and Education from Walsh College in North Canton, OH. Besides her adoring family, teaching and mathematics were her passions. She taught and influenced countless students in the Plain Township and the Hudson communities for over 35 years, until she retired from Hudson High School in 2014. A former Teacher of the Year with a National Board Certification, she will always be remembered for her dedication to math and her students.


Kathy is survived by her loving husband of 46 years, Gene Miceli, her partner in life who was always by her side. They made each other laugh... a lot. It is a beautiful testament to their marriage that their last date was attending a comedy show together. Kathy and Gene raised two children in Hudson: Julie Miceli of Chicago, IL, and A.J. Miceli (Hilery) of Hudson, OH. She was a proud grandmother to the light of her life, Nathan Samuel Miceli, age 1.5 years. To her immediate family, she was everything: a constant source of optimism and support, a person who cared about everyone she met, a fantastic cook, and a doting “Yiaya” to her grandson. Kathy was the daughter of George Manos, (deceased), Audrey and Harry (deceased) Tsilidas, of Canton, OH, and daughter-in-law to Arthur (deceased) and Rosalie Miceli of Garden City, NY. She is survived by her sister Cindy Manos-Steele (Brian) of Twinsburg, OH, her brother George Manos (Rita Castellaneta-Manos) of North Canton, OH, and many cousins, nieces, and nephews whom she loved very much. Per her wishes, there will not be a service, allowing the family to grieve privately. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider a donation to the “Kathryn Miceli Memorial Scholarship Fund,” which encourages female students in the Hudson schools to pursue Kathy’s love of mathematics. Go to http://www.myhcf.org/donate and select her fund from the drop down menu to make a deductible charitable contribution. Kathy will forever be missed by many family members, friends, colleagues and former students.

Gene, Julie, and A.J. ,
My heartfelt condolences go out to you and the entire family in the recent passing of one of the finest individuals I have ever had the privilege to know and work beside. Words cannot describe the powerful positive impact Kathy has bestowed upon those that had the privilege to cross paths with her. All one needs to see is how she raised such quality children and the sparkle in her eye when Gene came into the math office to know she was on this earth to make it a better place. Kathy’s loyalty to Hudson schools, mathematics, friends, and family is to be commended to say the very least. I know for a fact whenever I was having a bad day all I needed to do was look over at Kathy’s desk, see her contagious smile, and immediately all was better- it just always seemed like she never had a bad day herself but was there simply for others. Bless you all and be at peace knowing that Kathy’s legacy will not ever be forgotten.
