NORTHPORT – Kathy Bryant, 54, went to be with the Lord Feb. 3, 2010, with her family by her side in Belfast. Kathy was an incredible person who dedicated her life to helping others. Kathy had been a leader in the community from teaching Sunday school, taking care of families that needed assistance and being a friend to seniors throughout the community. Kathy saw a need in Waldo County for someone to help families who needed help providing Christmas presents to their children. As a result, she created an organization called Wings of Love. Her mission was to ensure all children and families in Waldo County who needed assistance would receive it. Throughout the years the program has expanded to also provide support to senior citizens, as well as school supplies and clothes for children at the beginning of the school year. Along this journey, Kathy found ways to inspire others by motivating them to become involved in helping others. In 2006 Kathy was recognized for her work with Wings of Love and the community as a recipient of the 2 Those Who Care Award by WLBZ Channel 2, Bangor. Kathy touched the lives of so many people and will always be loved. The memory of Kathy and all that she has accomplished will become a treasure to everyone who knew her. She was predeceased by her parents, Clyde Bailey and Shirley Bailey. Kathy was a beloved wife to John Bryant, with whom she shared 35 years of marriage; and loving mother to two children, Jennifer Hahn and her husband, Daniel, of Bear, Del., and John Bryant and his fiancee, Tammy Benecke; two granddaughters, Alexis and Isabelle; three sisters, Jean Verzoni, Diana Corey and Vicki Woods; and a brother, Clyde Bailey. Friends are invited to call 2-4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 7, at Crabiel-Riposta Funeral Home where funeral services will be held 2 p.m. Monday, Feb. 8, with the Rev. Richard Reynolds officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to further the work that Kathy has inspired at Wings of Love, P.O. Box 529, Belfast, ME 04915.
