MELE, Kay (Caterina)
June 10, 1920 – San Giovanni in Fiore, Italy
November 23, 2017 – Calgary, Alberta

Kay (Caterina) Mele, beloved wife of the late Tony Mele, passed away on Thursday, November 23, 2017 at the age of 97 years.

Kay came to Nordegg at age 3 with her family. Many happy years were spent there, raising her family, until the town closed in 1955. Kay moved to Calgary where she resided until her passing. She enjoyed spending time with her family, baking, knitting, camping, and anxiously waited for Sunday family dinners with her children, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She instilled the importance of family, hosting many large family gatherings over the years. Her home was always open for visits. She will fondly be remembered by many as Gramma.

Kay is survived by five children, Mary (Ron), Bill, Frank (Diana), Anne (Shane), and Lenore; grandchildren, Chris (Cindi), Gina (Michael), Jessica (Dom), Michael (Shelley), and Heather; her great-grandchildren, Marcus, Stefania, Kiera, Zach, and Nicole; extended family Jan and Farmer Bill; her beloved cats, Daisy and Tuffy; brother, Mario; sisters, Ro and Mary; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Kay was predeceased by her loving husband, Tony; cherished granddaughter, Trisha; great-grandson, Alec; and brother, Frank.
