Kathryn Meghan Mikolinski
1992 - 2017

On December 19, 1992, the world was blessed with the fierce, independent, talented and beautiful Kathryn Meghan Mikolinski. On November 20, 2017, Kathryn left us to be with her heavenly Father.

Kathryn was a graduate of Cromwell High School, Class of 2010. She continued her education at Bryant University for Law and Politics and graduated Uconn School of Law, Class of 2017. Kathryn was studying for her Bar Exam and had just accepted an Assistant Clerk Position with the Connecticut Superior Court in Vernon/Rockville.

Kathryn was an avid equestrian whose favorite ride was Julius. She was often heard saying to her trainer, Amy "put up those jumps". She loved all animals but held her two German Shepherds, Miley and Kaiya, closest to her heart. Kathryn was also known for her Ugg boots, pink pens and Juicy Couture perfume. Kathryn was one of a kind as the unicorns she loved. She was hard driven and competitive but still wore "Hello Kitty" pajamas. Kathryn is so deeply loved, touched so many lives and will be greatly missed by all.

Kathryn is survived by her parents, Robert and Sharon (Burgess) Blackwell of Cromwell and Ronald and Joan Mikolinski of Shrewsbury, MA; her brothers, Craig, Keith and Andrew; her sister, Michelle Rule; her grandmothers, Janet Burgess and Joan Blackwell and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

Her grandparents, Harry Burgess, Birze and Stella Mikolinski and David Blackwell; her uncle Henry "Hank" Mikolinski and her beloved dogs, Katie and Mika, predeceased Kathryn.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, December 2 at 11:00 am at First Congregational Church, 355 Main Street, Cromwell. In lieu of flowers, donations in Kathryn's memory can be made to The Kathryn Mikolinski 2017 Memorial Prize for Criminal Law at Uconn School of Law, at Uconn Foundation, Inc., 2390 Alumni Drive, Unit 3206, Storrs, CT 06269-3206 or s.uconn.edu/mikolinski.
