LEE, Carol “Kay”

1940 – 2014

Kay passed away on Sunday, October 12, 2014. Her memory will be cherished by Bill, her husband of 50 years, by her daughters Tracy (Philip) and Sharon, by her much beloved grandchildren Clay and Pannos, and by her brother Ian (Noelle) of England. She loved them all very dearly. She will also be fondly remembered by her nephews and nieces and by many wonderfully supportive friends.

Kay was born in England at Southend-on-Sea to Norman and Julie Dyer. She immigrated to Canada in 1960, first to Toronto, then Calgary where she met Bill, the guy she said she’d been looking for. They married in 1964 in Calgary and spent their lives there and in Vancouver. Kay was a loving wife, mom and jajja, a loyal friend, and a very courageous woman. We will grieve her loss very deeply.

A Memorial Reception will be held at The Glencoe Club, (636 – 29 Avenue S.W., Calgary, AB) on Monday, October 20, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Agapé Hospice, 1302 – 8 Avenue N.W., Calgary, AB T2N 1B8 Telephone: (403) 282-6588. Agapé provided Kay with truly wonderful and compassionate care which gave her great comfort. The staff were, without exception, kind, obliging and professional and we love them for that. She could not have passed her final days in a more peaceful and caring environment.

In living memory of Kay Lee, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Park Memorial, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Calgary, AB, T2S 2L5, Telephone: 403-243-8200.

  1. Bill, Tracy and Sharon, our hearts go out to you. Who is going to go to Garage Sales with me when I come to Calgary? Who is going to put the wind into my sails when I am sagging? I have loved being her friend and I will treasure her forever. Will see you as soon as I get clearance from the medics. LOVE AND HUGS TO ALL OF YOU.
    Heidrun (and Carl, of course)

  2. To Bill and all the family our love, strength and thoughts are with you all at this sad time.

    Carol was my friend for over 60 years and was part of my childhood and family. Even though we were miles apart we managed to keep up to date with each others activities through regular correspondence and holidays together. Our families meant so much to each other.

    Carol will be sadly missed by myself, my family and all those who knew her as she was such a wonderful, caring and loving person.

    Our love to you all.
    Linda, Julie her God-daughter, Jonathan and Charlotte.
    From Southend, England.

    To Bill and Family: Sorry to hear of your loss.
    It was great to have a fun evening at Maureen and Larry’s here in Vancouver last April with you and Kay. Kay was in great spirits and we had some good laughs – a memorable evening talking about old times on West 30th!! It was so nice that we had this chance to reconnect after so many years.
    Our thoughts are with you. Best regards, Brian and Connie
