Kathleen Talty, a Baltimore resident of nearly 40 years, passed away surrounded by family on June 6, 2020. She was a daughter, sister, cousin, aunt, and friend of fierce loyalty and endless generosity. A litigation attorney for four decades, she was a wise cracking Irish Catholic from day one. She is remembered as a tenacious community advocate, an unforgettable neighbor, and a beloved “Kackie” to children of all ages.

Kathleen was born in Garden City, NY, on July 10, 1953, to the late Peter and Kathryn (née Ryan) Talty. Long after she left Long Island, her New York accent returned any time she witnessed an injustice or was involved in a traffic altercation. She was a proud and active alumna of Our Lady of Mercy Academy in Syosset, NY, and Trinity College in the District of Columbia, where she served as class president. After receiving a JD from the University of Baltimore, she practiced employment law at Kruchko & Fries and FordHarrison LLP until her retirement in 2019.

She moved to Baltimore in the early 1980s, living first in Mount Vernon and, since 1992, in Wyman Park. She was an active member of St. Ignatius Catholic Church and deeply involved in local political causes, and there wasn’t a neighborhood debate that she wasn’t in the thick of. Kids from adjoining houses knew her door was always open and her candy dish was always full. A wonderful cook and dedicated knitter of odd shapes, she also cried at every funeral, whether or not she knew the deceased.

Irrepressible, irreverent, generous at heart, God broke the mold with Kathleen Talty. She is survived by her sister Maureen Konschnik (Dave), brother Peter Talty III (Linda), nieces Kate Konschnik, Alexandra Talty, and Seton Talty, nephew David Konschnik (Monica), and great nieces Anna and Lucy Konschnik. She also leaves behind an extended family of cousins, neighbors and friends, and many grieving hearts.

Mass of Christian Burial will be offered on Friday, June 12 at 11am. NOTE: Due to COVID-19, the Mass will be private. However, those interested may follow the Mass via live streaming using one of the following links:

A full celebration of Kathleen’s life will be held at a later date. Interment at St. John Cemetery in Middle Village, NY.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Loyola Early Learning Center, 801 St. Paul Street, Baltimore, MD 21202 and Loaves & Fishes Ministry of Saint Ignatius Catholic Church, 740 N. Calvert Street, Baltimore, 21202.

I am so blessed to have worked with Kathleen (as a client) over the past 8 years. She was always a a great sounding board, full of amazing advice and her quit wit and sarcasm could turn anyone's bad day around!. She was one of a kind for sure and earth lost a great woman. May her memory always be a blessing.

I always had a blast talking cooking shows with Kathleen when she was with Dave and Maureen. She was always so kind, thoughtful, and funny. She will truly be missed.

I felt very fortunate to have been introduced to Kathleen. She was truly our go-to for guidance and expertise relating to the YWCA. Her humor was awesome and she just cut to the chase. So bright and a quick wit, she will be missed.
