REID, Kathleen Mary Adelaide

May 15, 1926 – October 11, 2010

Kay Reid passed away on a sunny Thanksgiving afternoon October 11, 2010. She is survived by her loving husband of 63 years Capt. Ed Reid; daughter Randi, her husband Wally and her children Jennifer and Ryan, as well as her great granddaughter Thandiwe; daughter Shelley, her husband Martin and their daughter Anna. Kay is also survived by her loving sister Helen; nieces, nephews, relatives and close friends. Kay was born in Saskatoon, and grew up playing on the beaches of Kitsilano. She worked with her mother and sister at the Vancouver hotel where she met Ed. They married in 1948, and spent their life raising their family on Bristol Island. She is remembered for her loving heart, her generous nature, her beautiful gardens and her delicious meals (especially her pies). Kay, Mom, Nana, was a beautiful and elegant woman, whose love for her family was endless. She embraced life and laughed with her soul. Her passion touched the lives of many, and the memory of who she was, will be an inspiration to all who shared in her long and generous life. She will always be loved and never forgotten.

As she would say; ” Bye for now…”
