    My deepest sympathy for the loss of your Mom.  I always enjoyed visiting with Kay when I worked at Super Valu and any other time I would see her.  Such a sweet lady.  May your memories bring you comfort during this sad time.

    Our condolences to the Tremble and Laskos families. Aunt Kathryn told me many times how she "just adored" my father, Glenn, her oldest brother. Aunt Kathryn was just a gem and it was wonderful to visit with her and listen to her tell a story. Whether it was a story about my dad, or their life growing up on Grandpa and Grandma's farm, or about her adventures in life. I always listened intently to her, fastenated, with her gentle, always smiling voice. She was a gem, an awesome Aunt, and we Markham kids loved her dearly. Goodbye, Aunt Kathryn. The last of my father's generation, but never forgotten. I can just imagine the reunions you're having, I can hear the laughter and the joy.

      Gosh, just a few more thoughts and memories here. Not only did Aunt Kathryn tell me she adored my father, she told me he was her hero. That was something I didn't hear about my dad from anyone else. She was the youngest child and my dad was the oldest in that family, so she witnessed some things about him and she told me about it. My grandpa, her dad, William, lost his left hand in a farming accident. While he learned how to go thru life on a farm with a disability, my dad had to quit school in the ninth grade to help on the farm, to help keep it all going and help feed their family. She looked up to him and told me she was forever grateful to him for the sacrifices he gave to help her and the others. So, without Aunt Kathryn telling me about this, it's a respect for my dad I would have never understood. I am the youngest of nine kids, no one put my father in that "hero" light, except for Aunt Kathryn, so I'm very thankful to her for making me understand that situation in their lives, and why he was her hero. Thank you, Aunt Kathryn!

    Kay was a good friend, a good source of stories about the past. It was fun the  too few times I talked with her about 'old Oregon.' Anyone would be proud to call her 'Mother.' We'll miss her good humor.  May her family all have inner peace at this time of loss.

    Dear Mark, Mary & Paula,

    We are so sorry to hear of Kays passing.  The many years of backyard visits and keeping connected will remain with us for the rest of our lives. We like to think they were with her also.  She was a wonderful friend and will be sorely missed.  Our thoughts and prayers are with you .


    Love ,

    Steve and Ann Beck
