Katherine C. Neutzman, 89, of Hamilton, passed away peacefully, on October 7, 2022, surrounded by her loving family. Born in Trenton, she has been a lifelong area resident. Kay was an excellent cook and baker. Nothing brought her greater joy than putting a plate of food in front of someone. Whether it was something she made herself, or as a waitress, a profession she took great pride in for many years. Kay worked until the age of 81 when she was forced to give up her work due to a lung condition. She would have worked up to the day she died, since being productive made her happy. Kay spent many years as a waitress at many local restaurant including Villa Capri, Campo's, La Gondola, The Old Heidelberg, Crickets, and Fred & Pete's Deli. Most of all she cherished the time spent with her family, especially her grandchildren.
