On March 27, 2024, Kay passed away peacefully at the age of 95.

Kay will be lovingly remembered by her daughters Janice (Steve) Kopecky and Marilyn (George) Chalmers, her granddaughters Lindsay Chalmers, Caitlin (Mitch) Zaplachinski, and Rachelle Kopecky, as well as her great granddaughter Mischa Zaplachinski.

Kay was predeceased by her husband Fred on October 16, 1988, and was the last remaining sibling of the Federowich family.

Kay spent 94 years of her life in Dauphin, Manitoba prior to moving to Edmonton, Alberta in August 2022. Kay will always be remembered for the millions of perogies she pinched, her delicious baked goods, her bountiful garden, her exciting trips to win big at the casino, and her love of going out for the buffet at her favourite Chinese restaurants.

A special thank you to all the staff at Chartwell Griesbach retirement community for making her time there so enjoyable and memorable, as well as to all the staff at CapitalCare Norwood Palliative Hospice for providing compassionate care for our mom at the end of her life.

There will be no service at this time.

A celebration of life will occur in Dauphin, Manitoba in summer 2024.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Edmonton Humane Society or other charity of your choice.

  1. I’m sorry to hear about your grandmother.

  2. May God Richly Bless our Kay!
    Truthfully, it may have been billions of perogies! Kay was an amazing, energetic lady, never slowing down, never complaining. I so enjoyed her BEST homemade borscht, her creamed cabbage soup and chicken noodle soup made only with homemade noodles. None of those packaged noodles for her!! A wonderful garden, and colorful flowers she took such pride in growing. I will always remember her rage and fury and when some ”thugs” came along during the night and snipped the tops of her entire row of poppyseeds. She just moved her next crop to someone ese’s garden the next season!!
    I often picked Kay up at 8 p.m. when she and her gang rolled into town on the casino bus after a 12-hour day. That smile on her face told me she won $$… again!!
    A heart of gold, so generous and loved to please everyone! A beautiful lady and soul. Kay earned her rest. Heaven is so blessed by her arrival.
    My deepest sympathy to all her family during this time of sorrow. She will be so missed by those who loved her!
