In Loving Memory of Kathleen Frances Regan (1951 – 2023)

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Kathleen Frances Regan on Sunday, October 15, 2023.  Kathy passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones in Suffolk, VA. Her husband (Marty) and four children (Chris, Lauren, Peter, and Matthew) were by her side. 

Kathy is survived by her husband of 40 years Martin, four children Christopher (Partner Tori), Lauren, Peter (Partner Vaughn) and Matthew (Partner Kathryn). Additionally, her beloved ten grandchildren Conor, Abigail, Dara, Millie, Matthew, William, Brynn, Willow, Tatum, and Charlotte.

Kathy welcomed those who came into her life with open arms and a seat at her kitchen table. She loved fiercely and was a protector of all who resided in her heart. Kathy often said her most proud accomplishment was her four children, ensuring they all “do what they say and say what they do”.

In 2016, Kathy and Marty embarked on a journey with ADLAM Ventures, Inc., infusing it with their unique hospitality experience. They reimagined the brand to mirror not only who they were as individuals but also to capture their aspirations for the Company’s future, as Signature Touch Property Management.

Kathy, with her unwavering commitment, aimed to provide personalized care marked by integrity and professionalism. She dedicated herself to cultivating enduring relationships with Board members, homeowners, employees, and vendors. The objective was clear; to deliver a service that exceeded expectations within an environment defined by excellence and quality. Our Company motto directly stems from Kathy’s visionary spirit.

“Our business is personal to us. Just as your property is personal to you.”

Kathy’s influence shaped the very fabric of Signature Touch Property Management, leaving an indelible mark on its culture and values.  She was a leader within our Company, a dear friend and colleague to many of us. Her dedication and commitment to our business was unmatched, and her absence is felt throughout our organization.  Kathy was an exceptional individual, and her impact on our lives of those who knew her will forever be remembered.

We are dedicated to honoring her memory by continuing to serve you with the same passion and dedication that she instilled in our Company.
