So sorry to hear about your mom.. She was a lovely lady.
We didn’t know till today..
Just remember the good times and that she is with your dad again
Jim, Jo Ann, and Janet,
So sorry to hear about Aunt Kay’s passing. She was a beautiful lady both inside and out. I fondly remember my many gatherings with Uncle Bill and Aunt Kay and both Aunt Kay and I would acknowledge each other over conversations that we both found either odd or far fetched. Kay would give me one of those side of the head nods and her wonderful grins.
I loved Aunt Kay because of her sincerity and her ability to always know who was being up front and who wasn’t.
Uncle Bill is delighted to have Aunt Kay with him again, he was a very lucky man to have Kay as his lifetime partner.
God Bless you Aunt Kay!
Brian O’Grady and Family
I am so sorry to hear that my former colleague has passed away.
Kay came to Public Health Nursing with a wealth of knowledge of Child Health which she shared with us; and, in turn she was always eager to learn something new. She had empathy and respect for all her clients.
I love this picture of her. Her warmth and beauty always radiated from her smile.
Jim and family my deepest condolences on the loss of your mother
Keith and family, my deepest condolences on the loss of your mother.

Sorry to hear of your moms, my Auntie Kay’s passing. All though I’ve been away quite a while I vividly remember as a small lad goin Ski Doin with your family. We would have a boil up and Kay would all ways have a treat with our tea. I remember she also used Carnation powdered milk in the bush for tea.. Many times leaving Holy Heart I’d drop in for a hello and all ways was invited to stick around for supper..She did look good on the back of Uncle Bills bike, motor cycle momma.. Enjoy the other side.
