Katherine Fitzpatrick Wymard

Kate passed away suddenly on Wednesday September 15, 2021.  She was the beloved daughter of the late Francis X. and Ellin Hahn Wymard; sister of Francis D. Wymard (Katherine) and aunt of Harper,

August and Emerson Wymard.  She was also survived by many wonderful cousins and aunts and uncles.  Kate

was creative, artistic, fashionable, stylish and an animal lover; with her most recent

pet being her rabbit, Jackson.  She studied cosmetology at the Aveda Institute in

Chicago, class of 2007 and began her career as a hair stylist at Michael Anthony

Salon Spa in Chicago between 2007 and 2010. She continued her career by moving home

to Pittsburgh between 2010 and 2013 and worked at Pageboy Salon and Boutique in Lawrenceville.  Kate

moved to Los Angeles in 2013 and worked inside sales at Alo Yoga and was working at

Ingrid and Isabel as Associate Operations Manager and Customer Service Lead when she passed away.

While she loved her current job, and the people she worked with, she always said the best job she ever had was being the Aunt of Harper, August and Emmy and loved making them smile, laugh and feel loved, whether in person, over Facetime, or on a recent family trip to Disney World. Kate loved her big brother, Fran, and the two shared a knack for quoting television and movie lines and

remembering the great travel adventures they shared with their late parents,

especially ski trips in Big Sky, Beaver Creek and Jackson Hole as well as two

weeks every summer on Hilton Head Island. A memorial service and reception will

be held on Thursday September 30, 2021 at 11:00AM at the Pittsburgh Golf Club,

5280 Northumberland Street PGH, PA 15217. Remembrances may be made to Animal Friends, 562 Camp Horne Road, PGH, PA 15237.
