Kathleen Wilson, beloved wife of Frank Wilson of Calgary, passed away peacefully with her family at her side after a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s disease at the Father Lacombe Nursing Home on Monday, March 8, 2004 at the age of 79 years.
Kay was born and raised in Calgary and was a loyal fan of both the Flames and the Stampeders.

Kay was a forty-three year member of the Ladies Auxiliary, Branch 154, Royal Canadian Legion. She also worked for many years for the United Way of Calgary and the MS Society.
