Katherine Grace (Rounds) Weisman, 55, of Mount Kisco, NY passed away on April 20, 2021 with family
by her side after a heroic and difficult battle with Multiple Myeloma. Katie was born September 24, 1965
in Bloomington, IL.
She graduated from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn with a BS in Fine Arts, and worked as a technical
designer before becoming a full-time mom and autism advocate, most recently in her position as
Assistant to the Chairman at Children's Health Defense.
Katie is survived by her wonderful husband, Doug Weisman, her three beautiful sons (23), Nick, Alex and
Don, her mother and father Elaine and Richard Rounds of Brandon, Manitoba, her brother Jon, sister-in-
law Carla (Rafael), brother-in-law Lawrence (Amanda), and brother-in-law Roger.
Katie meant so much to all of us, touching each of us in her own unique way. She was nothing short of
exceptional when it came to advocating not only for her sons, but endless children and young adults on
the autism spectrum. She single-handedly changed the lives of many families, encouraging them to
look at autism as a different and wonderful way to approach life, not as something tragic. Katie was
passionate about her work with the Children's Health Defense and fought endlessly for vaccine safety
and the vaccine injured. She was an active member of our community, especially within the Bedford
Central School District, Special Education Parent Teacher Association (SEPTO) and Bedford Autism
Spectrum Support (BASS). She loved her town, Mount Kisco, and took great pride in being a part of the
Beautification Committee. The flowers that will bloom in front of the library this spring are thanks to her
