Kathy was born April 6, 1959 to the late Barbara (Keefe) Creighton and the late Harold Creighton. She was a lifelong resident of Townsend and many of her fondest memories are from growing up in Townsend Harbor. She graduated from North Middlesex Regional High School in 1977. She started her professional career working at N.E.B.S. but transitioned to part time work for the Town of Pepperell Board of Selectmen to allow her more time to be with her young family. She later went to work for the Lawrence Library where her favorite role was that of “Miss Kathy” in Toddler Time where she read, sang, and did crafts with children from the local community. Continuing to pursue her passion for public service, Kathy went on to work for the Town of Townsend in the Land Use Department where, during her tenure as Land Use Coordinator, she wrote the grant application that was used to build the Townsend Woods facility. Most recently Kathy was employed by FairPoint Communications in Manchester, NH where she worked in customer service, although she still found time to serve on the Townsend Housing Authority and the Townsend Planning Board. Kathy leaves behind her high school sweetheart and loving husband of 38 years James Araujo, her daughter Heather Araujo of Nashua, NH, her son Dillon Araujo of Pepperell, MA and her two Shih Tzus Molly and Bella, as well as her brother John Creighton and his wife Lily of Rockledge, FL and her nephew Michael Creighton of Portland, OR. Kathy had a passion for gardening and spent many hours maintaining her flower beds at her home in Townsend. She also enjoyed traveling with her husband, particularly their many camping trips. She was an incredibly dedicated wife and mother and a bright, warm light that brought an abundance of joy and laughter to those in her life. Kathy and her family are especially grateful to her cancer care team at Massachusetts General Hospital for providing her with the absolute best care throughout her entire journey.
