Caitlin Elizabeth Sepe

Beloved fiancée, mother, daughter, sister, niece and friend;

It is with the greatest of sadness that we share with you that Caitlin Elizabeth Sepe passed away in her sleep suddenly and unexpectedly on the morning of Wednesday January 20, 2021.  She was 35-years-young.

Caitlin was born in Lowell, Massachusetts to Brian Sepe and the late Marilyn Elizabeth (Mehan) Sepe on July 24, 1985 and was raised in Lowell and Chelmsford while also attending grammar schools there.

She was a graduate of St. Margaret School in 2000 and then Lowell High School with the Class of 2004.

Caitlin began working right after high school and had most recently worked for five years at Courier Westford before finding her true calling - being a mom.  As the mother of her two daughters, Ella and Olivia, she often said it brought her more love and joy than her heart could hold and described them as “THE absolute best things” in her life.

Caitlin, along with the love of her life, Patrick J. Keefe Esq, enjoyed spending time together, with their daughters and with family and friends.  She loved the New England Patriots and Tom Brady “Go Bucs!” and also loved hiking and going to concerts with Pat and her sisters.  Inspired by her mom, Caitlin was an avid Dave Matthews Band fan, attending every concert she could and was even lucky enough to meet Dave Matthews on one of her concert adventures.

Caitlin also loved spending time at the beach house she and her sister would rent every year and entertaining various family members and friends there. Summer days by the pool at the Keefe house brought untold joy.

Besides her fiancé Pat, her father Brian and his wife Suzanne, and her daughters Ella M. and Olivia G., Caitlin is survived by her loving sisters Lauren M. Sepe and partner Nelson Torres and Kristen M. Sepe; three step siblings Monica Paquette, Mark Paquette, Jr. and Joseph Paquette and his wife Nicole; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.

We all try to live our lives by various hopes, dreams and ideals. This favorite quote of Caitlin’s seems to best capture her essence.
