Putnam – Kyle A. Malo, 55, of Heritage Rd., passed away on Sunday, October 19, 2014. Born in New York City, NY, she was the loving wife of Richard A. “Dick” Malo, whom she married in St. Mary Church of the Visitation .
Kyle was a 33 year Veteran of Corrections at the A.C.I. in Cranston, RI. She was a member of the American Quarter Horse Association, Fraternal Order of Correctional Officers and Harley Owners Group. Kyle rode motorcycles for 40 years. She showed, trained and bred quarter horses and enjoyed attending the Pendleton Oregon Round-up. She collected Indian artifacts from the Ogla Sioux tribe and was an avid flower and vegetable gardener.
Kyle loved her job, her Harley, her horse “Ciso”, her gardens, her home and beautiful farm, but most of all she loved her husband. Kyle was full of life. She could be seen riding her Harley or her sports car around town. But what people saw and sometimes could not believe, was her on her horse riding downtown for a beer or through the drive thru at Dunkin Donuts on Route 44 for a coffee. She now rides that Harley and horse in town no more, but up in the puffy white clouds above, if you look up to the heavens you will see her on her Harley or her horse, smiling down on all of us.
In addition to her husband, Kyle is survived by; her brothers and sisters-in-law, Don (Karen) Malo of Webster, MA and Rene (Ginny) Malo of Douglas, MA; her nieces, Michelle, Chrissy, April, Laura, and Rachel; her nephews, Jason, Luke, Eric, and Dave; her brother Kurt Adams of Walla Walla, WA; and her god child, Megan Lasher of R.I. She is predeceased by her step father, the late Norman Adams and step mother, the late Elise Koen.
Relatives, friends, and neighbors are invited to attend a Memorial Service for Kyle at 1:00 pm on Saturday, November 1, 2014 at the Thompson Rod and Gun Club, 93 Brandy Hill Rd., Thompson, CT 06277. Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the Gilman Funeral Home. For memorial guestbook visit www.GilmanAndValade.com.
