Catherine Kennedy of Calgary passed away at the Foothills Medical Centre after a long and courageous struggle with illness on Thursday, September 23, 2004 in her 96th year.
Kay began her long and busy life as a schoolgirl in Nokomis, SK. She was a teacher in Punnichy, SK, was a caregiver to her mother, stepmother, and two husbands in their illness and deaths, and was a help to many in her working years in Calgary. Kay loved animals, particularly horses. She and her husband Frank raced horses in many parts of the country. Kay always lived life to its fullest. She cared deeply for all her many friends, and enjoyed sharing her sense of humour and lively wit. She was a truly memorable lady, and a joy to all who knew her.
She will be sadly missed by her stepson Raymond Kennedy, North Sydney, NS; her stepdaughter Alice Smith (Tom), Brookfield, NS; her stepson-in-law Alec Stewart (Anne), Kingston, ON; Alec’s three sons, James, Hugh, and Duncan; her many good friends in Calgary, including those in the Crescent Heights Baptist Church; and by her friends who worked in the Foothills Medical Centre. Kay was predeceased by her husband Charles Martin, 1943; her second husband Frank Kennedy, 1963; and her stepdaughter Alta Stewart, 2000.
A Memorial Service will be held at the Crescent Heights Baptist Church, (1212 – 1st Street N.W.) on Thursday September 30 at 1:00pm. Private interment will be in Truro, NS. The family is very grateful to Dr. Schorr and to those who cared for Kay at the Foothills Medical Centre and the Colonel Belcher.Print This Obituary & Condolences
