Obituary... Kathleen A. Lydon

Kathleen A. Lydon, 60, of Medway, Mass., died unexpectedly, Tuesday, November 6 at the Milford Regional Hospital. She was the daughter of the late Russell B. and Eleanor Brodeur. She graduated from Millis High School in 1959 and continued her education at Chandler College in Boston where she earned a BA. She was a member of the American Morgan Horse Club and was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother.

Mrs. Lydon was the secretary of the family business, Tim Lydon Farrier and also assisted her husband at horse shows all across New England. Together they successfully showed many Morgans and American Saddlebreds. She was well-known for caring for others, always putting their needs first. Mrs. Lydon was also very straight-forward with her critiques of her husband’s show ring performances.

She is survived by her husband, Timothy J. Lydon and three children, John J. Lydon and his wife Tracey; Dede K. Mill and her husband James; and Maureen Lydon who is an instructor/assistant trainer at Walnut Way Farm in Simpsonville, Ky. She is also survived by three grandchildren, Taylor L. Mill and Matthew J. Mill as well as Jake Ronald Lydon.
