Katie M. Waltermire

Katie M. Waltermire, age 44, of Ilion, passed away on Tuesday, April 16, 2024 at Upstate Medical Center, Syracuse, NY, following a long and courageous battle with cancer. She had the love and support of her family at her side when her passing occurred.

Katie was born in Ilion, NY on Sept. 18, 1979, daughter of Larry S. Briggs and Janet Stevens. Katie was educated in Ilion schools, graduating from Ilion High School, Class of 1998. She went on to graduate from Roberts Wesleyan University, Rochester, NY with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. She was last employed at KabaFusion as a Registered Nurse. Katie’s passion for Nursing lasted 20 years. She continued to work while receiving chemotherapy and radiation treatments and would get frustrated anytime it was suggested that she should stop working. Her children meant the world to her and some of her most cherished time was spent being a mother, daughter, sister and aunt.

Survivors include her devoted family; her parents, Larry (Patricia) Briggs of Ilion, Janet Stevens of Jordanville; her adored children, Ethan, Timothy, McKenzie Waltermire and the father of Katie’s children, Daniel Waltermire; her loving sister, Joanna Marshall and husband Brian of Jordanville; niece and nephew, Brianna and Jaxson Marshall; uncle and aunt, Lynn Briggs, Sandra and James Mallory; many cousins and dear friends, including John Monette.

She was preceded in death by her uncles, Clayton and Wayne Stevens; maternal grandparents, Arlowene and Gordon Stevens; and paternal grandparents, Sherwood and Pauline Briggs.
