Obituary of Katherine G. Doak

Schenectady- Katherine G. Doak, 86, of Schenectady, N.Y. was called to her heavenly home on Monday, October 7th, 2019, surrounded by her family.
     "Kathy" was born on June 21, 1933 to the late Edith and Felix Micheli of Schenectady, N.Y.  She attended Mont Pleasant High School.  On Christmas Eve 1950, Kathy married the love of her life, Robert E. Doak, prior to Robert being deployed to the Korean Conflicts.  They were married for 64 years until his death in 2014.  Starting her working career at Barney's in downtown Schenectady, she gave up her working ambitions to raise a family - Vicki (Doak) Affinito, Linda (Doak) Duell and David Allen Doak.
     Kathy loved and cared for her family above all else.  She was an avid sports fan and she loved the New York Yankees, especially Paul O'Neill and Derek Jeter.  She attended all of her grandsons sporting events.  Vacationing to Cape Cod was a favorite spot and camping at Wells State Park, Moffett's Beach and Moreau State Park were some of her favorite places to go.  She loved to read, cook (that German potato salad and baked beans), eat out and shop as she had QVC on speed dial and came to know her mail man very well with all the packages she received.  She loved to "spend money."
      Kathy was predeceased by her parents, husband Robert, her son David and her brother Francis Micheli.  
      Survivors include her daughter Vicki Affinito and husband Mike, daughter Linda Duell and husband Jim; grandchildren Rob (Katie) Duell, Josh Duell, Cris (Alix) Affinito, Jeremy (Jess) Affinito; great grandchildren Brynn and Bryce Duell, Dominic and Tony Affinito; siblings Felix (Joe) Micheli, William (Helen) Micheli, Elizabeth (Betty) Brown, sister-in-law Pat Micheli and brother and sister-in-law Ernie and Karen Kilinski.
