  2. Kay
    Was a wonderful teacher with a iron fist but only a cause she wanted you to learn right way an most all because she cared to take time to teach you a wonderful lady mother grandmother will be missed by all those knew her.

  3. Many memories. She called my girls (Trish N Tiff) “Her little birds”. On a Mother’s Day many years ago, she said, “I want my little birds right up here beside me” at the dinner table. This one sticks out! I’ll miss her and my prayers out to the fam. Love you all.

  4. I am sorry to hear about the passing of Kay. I knew her when she worked for Lummi. And then our sons were born on the same day, same hospital. She always treated me kindly.
