Christine Kot

Westfield – Christine M. (Egan) Kot, 62, of Westfield, MA, passed away peacefully on December 5, 2018 at the Governor’s Center following an illness. Christine was a lifelong-resident of Westfield, born on November 27, 1956 in Springfield, MA to George M. and Mary Ann (Bolio) Egan. She grew up with her four sisters and brother on Cowles Court. Christine was a member of Saint Mary’s High School’s class of 1974. Christine was an active, rebellious child, who wasn’t afraid to speak her mind. This sometimes earned her some slaps with the ruler from the nuns at school, much to her mother’s chagrin. She started her family at a young age, and over the course of sixteen years and two marriages she had four children. She took advantage of her energetic and outgoing nature by waitressing at various establishments around town, later becoming a bartender at Rally’s for many years, which is how she gained many of her friends and acquaintances. While raising her children, Christine enjoyed gardening, keeping houseplants, listening to music, watching old reruns, and adopting animals. She didn’t have a lot of material possessions, but she was often found helping people in need in whatever way she could: babysitting kids, cooking food, or simply being a friend. Her children would joke about how she was friends with everyone in Westfield because they couldn’t go anywhere without their mother talking to someone she knew. Later in life, Christine stopped working to help her children raise their own kids. She continued to be friends with everyone in Westfield, but lived more quietly. When she wasn’t helping out her friends and family, one of her favorite places to go was “down by the river” where she had a special log that she would sit on and watch the water. Christine is survived by her four children: Jacob Dolat of Westfield, Erica (Dolat) Art of Townsend, Courtney Kot of Westfield, and Meagan Kot of Sanford, FL. She leaves behind eight grandchildren: Victoria Kot, Olivia Art, Brianna Kot, Alexander Art, Ariana Kot, Ryleigh Chistolini, Averie Cipparone, and Grayson Cipparone. She also leaves behind: her mother; her siblings Eileen Scagliarini (Bob) of Springfield, MA, Ann Marie Marrinan (Peter) of Hudson, NH, Mary Ann Romani (John) of Westfield, John Egan of places unknown, and Sheila Bath (Tom) of Aurora, CO; many nieces and nephews; and several four-legged furry grandchildren. Services will be Sunday, December 9, 2018 at Firtion-Adams Funeral Home in Westfield. Visitation from 12-1PM, with a Funeral Service at 1:00.
