They farmed in the Bruce district from 1945 to 1977, when they moved to Viking. Kay then started working at the nursing home. They spent many hours playing cards and enjoyed camping.
In 1990 they moved to Camrose, where they could be closer to their children and grandchildren. After the loss of Charles she sold her house and moved to Armena with Bob and his family. She then spent many years helping once again on the farm.
She leaves to cherish her memory are her daughter-in-law Angy; two grandchildren Adam (Desiree), and Sheri (Travis) Fitzgerald; four great-grandchildren Keston, Katie, Christian, and Annabelle; and one sister Maureen (Fred) Szott.
