Beloved Mother of Yvonne (Scott) Rossmiller (Lukey) and Julie Lukey, Edward (Stephanie) Zitney Jr. and Andrew (Cindy) Zitney and cherished grandmother of Zach, Max, Andi, Ann, Iza, and Emily.
Kay left a profound impact on the lives of all who have been fortunate enough to have known her. Her 92 years were filled with love, laughter, family, and friends.
As a Mother & Wife, Kay was a source of endless love and support. Kay had a zest for life. She loved to garden, growing all the vegetables she could. Canning and freezing was a seasonal joy of hers. She also found joy in reading, crocheting, baking, playing scrabble, cards, and ceramics. She enjoyed telling stories of her youth and all the good times with her brothers and sisters. But of all the things she loved to do, the most important was being there for her family. There was never a day she didn’t say “I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family”. She was the strongest woman we have ever known. We were never sure if she was ever sick or had a cold. She didn’t have time for that. She was our family rock!
Catherine’s memory will forever be cherished by her family and friends. Her legacy of love, compassion, and strength will continue to inspire those who were fortunate enough to have known her. Though she may be gone, her spirit will live on in the hearts of all who were touched by her presence. Rest in Peace Mom, Grandma, Friend.
