We are sorry for your loss. Aunt Kay was Tom's Godmother and always had time for him in his youth as well as our family as it has grown. She always shared great news about her children and grandchildren with us. We will miss her dearly. Love, Tom and Kristen Ziebol

Our deepest sympathy to read of Kay's passing. She was a lovely lady to visit with and became a friend to my mother Jean before and at Chateau Waters.
