Nov 27, 1926 – Aug 25, 2014
Kathleen Emily Thebes
On August 25th Kay passed away peacefully at the age of 87.
Kay was born & raised in Penticton with her family also living at Fish Lake. She played drums in a band and was very active in sports. She was fortunate to meet the love of her life, Wilf, in Osoyoos while working at the Packing House. They all moved up to Kitimat to have a change in careers and stayed for 31 years. After they decided to retire in 1985, they moved back to Osoyoos. This is where Kay continued to be involved with the church, enjoying lawn bowling, golf, cross country skiing, crafts and all her wonderful baking. Dancing was a common outing when they got together with friends.
Being a grandma was the best part of her life, she enjoyed and loved watching her grandchildren, Kali, Kevin and Kristi grow and support them in whatever they were doing. Grandma would always drop what she was doing to help. Her smile & laugh will be dearly missed.
Kay was predeceased by her loving husband, Wilf, last year, mother, Martha, father, Ernest, and son, William (Bill) Thebes, sister’s Rose & Mary, and brother, Tom.
Kay will always and forever be remembered by her loving family, daughter Debbie Gehringer (Gordon); and her grandchildren Kali, Kevin and Kristi and all the Gladish family and friends that are helping at this time of loss.
Our family wants to thank all the wonderful staff at Mariposa Gardens for their special care and love to Kathleen over the time she lived there.
A celebration of Kay’s life will be held at St. Christopher’s Anglican Church, Osoyoos on Saturday, September 27th at 11:00am
