From: Archie and Barbara Yurkiw
Relation: My aunt.

For as long as I can remember, visits with aunt Kay and uncle John were among the most eagerly awaited. I can’t speak of one without the other because it was the sense of togetherness and happiness they both brought to the occasions. There was always a closeness that transcended the miles apart. I know that everyone who has had the pleasure of being in their company will profoundly miss this togetherness. Especially my mom, Kay’s sister Anne.
Barbara and I wish to extend our deepest condolences on the passing of dearly beloved aunt Kay.

Relation: lawn bowling

As a new lawn bowler last year, Kay was one of the people who made it a pleasure for me. I always enjoyed our conversations and found Kay to be a very young person at heart. She will be missed.
