Katinka Loeser, 77, many of whose short stories were infused with what a critic described as "autobiographical sketches of warmth and charm," died Wednesday of kidney failure in Norwalk Hospital in Norwalk, Conn. The author, who lived in Westport, Conn., published three collections of stories, most of which first appeared in the New Yorker: "Tomorrow Will Be Monday: Stories of Parents and Children" (1964); "The Archers at Home" (1968), about a suburban couple afflicted with empty-nest syndrome, and "A Thousand Pardons" (1982), stories about a Westport couple who enjoy their lives and the changing seasons.
