    To the family of Kay; She sewed her family together with soft strong stitches of sharing and love .Who could laugh , sigh then with smiling eyes say being a farmers wife ,mother and being part of a great community was all she needed our wanted to see her family grow. She could wash,dry, iron tidy up feed the animals help outside grow a big garden but still have time to visit and see how you were doing.Enjoyed are visits when she was at the Bethany even if some days she wasn’t feeling so hot but always said hi.May you find comfort knowing she is once again your dads helper.

    Our deepest condolences to the family. Kay was a wonderful lady, truly one of the special ones. We feel so blessed to have known her and her memory will live on in our hearts. She was the most serious, but happy go lucky person. I was fortunate enough to work with her in the vegetable section at the Fair. She truly enjoyed that section and her passion for it shone through. Thanks Kay for all your tips and helpfulness. Will never forget how you took me under your wing and each year gave me a little more responsibility until finally one day I took over.
    You and Walt were a very special part of the community and we will be forever grateful to have been in your circle. God Bless you both and the loving families you have left behind.

    We are very saddened to hear of Auntie Kay’s passing. Such a lady who did things her way – including disposing of slugs!!! Auntie Kay’s house was always open for visitors and cookies and tea. Even while in the Bethany you could find her off visiting with someone. Our thoughts are with Marion, Anne, Alan, and Roy and their families. I hope her and Uncle Walt are up there planning the garden.
