It is with deep sadness that the family of Kay Hames announces her peaceful passing in Calgary at the age of 88 years.
Born in Dawson City, Yukon, Kay soon moved to Saskatchewan where she spent much of her early life. As an only child, she was soon introduced to a group of twelve siblings – The Hames Family in Oxbow, SK. It wasn’t long after that she married into the family when she wed Norman Hames in Moose Jaw during WWII. Kay was trained and practiced as a registered nurse at the Moose Jaw General Hospital, before moving to Calgary. While living in Calgary, Kay was a proud member of both the Gyro and Glencoe Clubs. Kay will always be remembered for her tremendous sense of humour, love of life and kind heart. She will be dearly missed.
Kay is survived by her daughter Dr. Linda Hames; son David (Barbara) Hames; granddaughters, Kari (Peter) Beermann, Jennifer and Lindsay Hames; and of course, her dearest friend, Precious. Kay was predeceased by her husband Norman in 1985.
A private family service will be held on Sunday, May 4, 2008. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes in Kay’s honour may be made directly to the charity of donor’s choice.
