Remembering Kate O'Malley Sullivan
It is with great sadness that we share that our dear friend, Kate O’Malley Sullivan , passed away suddenly on Thursday, September 12, 2019.  Kate is a longtime friend and member of the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce, has served in many leadership roles not only in the Chamber but also in our community. Kate was the 2015 L.E.A.P. Award recipient recognizing her leadership, excellence, achievement and professionalism, in making a positive impact on women in her profession, business and community at large.

Kate and her husband, Tim Sullivan, founded Neighbors Magazines in 2005. Prior to 2005 they owned and continue to operate, Emerald Marketing Inc, a business to business marketing communications firm. They loved going to breakfast in the Tri-Cities on weekends and walk the Fox River discussing issues of the world. They met on St. Patrick's Day, got engaged on St. Patrick's Day (9 years later) and honeymooned in Ireland.

Our sincere sympathy goes out to Kate’s husband Tim, her family, and so many of you whose lives were touched by Kate. May you find peace and comfort in the fond memories that you shared. For information about visitation and services for Kate, please visit this website .
