Dec 18, 1929 – Dec 14, 2017

Kay passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of December 14th at the Comox Valley North Island Hospital. She is survived by her husband Mits of 63 years, daughter Susan and sons Brian and James. Kay also leaves behind her siblings Al, Carl, Art and Eileen.

Kay lived a rich, full life after growing up in the farming community of Raymond, Alberta. She resided in Toronto, Montreal, Germany and Winnipeg before settling in the Comox Valley. She worked in Comox as a volunteer educational assistant at Comox Elementary School and eventually spent more than 10 years as a Ward Clerk at St. Joseph’s Hospital.

Kay will always be fondly remembered for her sewing, needlework and knitting abilities not to mention her culinary and gardening skills.

In keeping with her wishes, there will not be a service. In lieu of flowers, donations in Kay’s name can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
