It is with great sadness that the family of Kaye McCartney announces her passing on Friday, April 29, 2011 after a brief illness.
Kaye will be lovingly remembered by her husband, William “Bill”; her son, James (Charlotte) and her step-children, Stewart (Darleen), Shelley (Allan) and Gordon (Rubyanne); her sister, Evelyn (Glen) and her brother, Lawrence (Kim).
She will also be missed by her 13 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her son, Gordon; her mother and father and her brother, Jack.
Kaye was born at her grandparents home in Sioux Lookout, Ontario in 1934. She was raised first at Sioux Lookout, Ontario and then at Winnipeg, Manitoba. In 1968, she moved to Vancouver, B.C. where she later married William McCartney. After they both retired, they relocated to St. Albert, Alberta so that they could be equidistant from their two families in Manitoba and British Columbia.
A Memorial Service, in memory of Kaye, will be held on Wednesday, May 4, 2011 at Connelly-McKinley St. Albert Funeral Funeral, 9 Muir Drive, St. Albert, Alberta, at 11:00 a.m. with Pastor Cyril Gower officiating. Interment will follow in Manitoba.
