Kathleen (Kay) McCarthy
Kathleen Rita McCarthy was born in Northern Alberta on September 9, 1925 and passed away at the Good Samaritan Southgate Centre on November 26, 2016.
An Edmonton teenager during WWII, Kathleen was employed at "The Gas Company" until retirement. Always a "fashionista", she was a septuagenarian fashion model, still admired for her style. Following politics was a passion; the "political junkie" was an active member of the Liberal Party of Canada. Kathleen retained a remarkable memory and active intellect. She enjoyed life in the Oliver area, overlooking the river valley and The Promenade.
Kathleen was predeceased by her parents, RCMP Staff Sergeant Eugene McCarthy and Jane Clarke McCarthy, many relatives and friends. She is survived by her cousin, Sheila Walker of Calgary, numerous other cousins and their families.
Cremation has taken place and will be followed by interment, at a later date, in the Edmonton Cemetery. Respecting Kathleen's wishes, there will be no memorial service.
Special thanks to the caring staff at Southgate Centre.
I was so sorry to hear of Kay’s passing. I worked with Kay for many years until her retirement . We remained friends over the years and another Northwestern Utilities college, Dale and myself would meet her for lunch at least once a year to share each others activities since our last get together. Yes, a ” fashionista” she sure was; I always said if she were to wear a paper bag she would be the most stylish person in the room complete with all the matching accessories.
May time ease the sorrow you feel and leave only loving memories.
