Kay was a natural teacher who cared for and respected her students, who she referred to as “her children.” In turn, they and their parents respected her as well. Kay taught in Saskatchewan, Burnaby, and Tynehead, and became principal of Cloverdale Elementary in the 1940’s. In the 1950’s, she took over as supervisor of all intermediate grade teachers in Surrey.
Kay was a curler, keen bridge player and world traveller, who had been from Japan to St. Petersburg. She was a welcoming hostess and was always generous and kind to members of her family. She was a life-long dog lover and the affection was returned over her lifetime by many pets – both hers and those belonging to friends and family. Thank you so much, Kay, for thinking of the animals by leaving a gift to them in your will.
