Kathryn Helen Nelson

September 13, 1982 - November 02, 2018

Kathryn Helen Nelson Kathryn Elliott Nelson died in the late hours of Friday, November 2nd from complications stemming from a heart attack she suffered twelve weeks earlier. She was born in Ashtabula Ohio on September 13th 1982. She lived here all her life. She was 36 years old. Kate was a bright, hard working, charismatic person. A driven career woman, Kate had just recently finished graduate school to become a nurse practitioner before suffering a heart attack in August. She was fiercely proud of her career as a nurse, a field she entered into after caring for her stepfather, Patrick McClure through his health struggles fifteen years earlier. She was loved by her coworkers at ACMC for her energy, intelligence, and most of all her outsized personality. She was also devoted to her family. She is survived by her son, Aiden, her ex-husband, Steve, her mother, Carlyn McClure, father, Don Elliott, and brother, Robert ( Linda)Elliott, her boyfriend Sanjay Srivastava, and her good friends Miranda Meola and Tamara Stone. To her family and friends she was a constant source of joy. Here too she was a natural leader, a constant planner of family vacations and organizer of activities. Her death leaves a hole that will not soon be filled. Services for Kate will be held at Guerriero funeral home 1550 West 19th St. Ashtabula O. Calling hours will be from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday November 6th with funeral services also be Guerriero on Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. In her brief time she touched so many lives. We invite all of her family and friends to come and share their remembrances and join us in our expression of grief at her passing. Condolences at guerrierofuneralhome.com

I have known Katie since kindergarten, and went to school with her through 9th grade. I lost touch with her for awhile after I changed schools. I would see her at time working at McDonald's, which would always make me smile. After working in Cleveland as a nurse, I came to back work at acmc. And who do I run into, Katie. It meant the world to me to run into a friend that I hadn't seen in years. She was an amazing nurse and NP. We had so much fun working together on nights in ICU. Shared a lot of great memories. Her sense of humor was always amazing and helpful, especially in the high stress environment of the ICU. She was an amazing woman, friend and mother!! Will miss you for the rest of my... life.
Love you Katie girl.

Jane and I are saddened to hear of Kate's passing., We didn't know her, but who we feel like we did, through her loving Aunts, Susan and Nora who always spoke so highly of her. Our deepest sympathies to the many who's lives she touched.

In the short time that I knew Katie her impact on my life was profound. I was immediately drawn in by her charisma and good natured cynicism. She touched my spirit the way my oldest childhood friends have. I miss her terribly and will carry her with me throughout the rest of my life.
