Remembering Katy Brady     

Katy Brady

Legal Assistance for Seniors unexpectedly lost one of our long-time employees, Katy Brady, who passed away on May 27, 2021 from an aggressive form of cancer. Katy was our Community Education Coordinator, who many of you knew and collaborated with over the years. Katy was an amazing colleague and friend who always worked with great enthusiasm and compassion for the older adults in our community. Katy was always willing to go the extra mile to help others and never missed an opportunity to make new friends and share her smile and positive energy.


LAS mourns the death of our dear friend and sends our love to her family. Katy was one of a kind!

In the words of Katy, “Go team go!”

Karen Vasudavan

“Karen was a very bright light, and she was always so supportive of LAS and of me (any many, many others) personally. I miss her very much and am holding her family in my heart.”
