Obituary of Katherine G. Weisman

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 efforts. Visiting hours will be at Oelker, Cox-Sinatra Funeral Home this Saturday, April 24th from 1-5pm. It is located at 262 E. Main Street, Mount Kisco, New York. A memorial service will take place at a later date. The Weisman Family kindly asks that, in lieu of flowers, a donation be made in Katie's name to Children's Health Defense at https://childrenshealthdefense.org/annual-fellowship/. There is also a Go Fund Me page set up to assist the family at https://gofund.me/f849c9b3
