Kay was a proud to be a member of the Friends of Schuylerville Library for many years. She liked playing Bingo, and trips to the ocean where she could go camping with her family. Most of all, Kay enjoyed entertaining her family in her home and spending time with all her grandchildren.

Friends may call from 5-6pm on Tuesday, June 25, 2019 at the M.B. Kilmer Funeral Home, 123 Main Street, Argyle, NY 12809.

Please accept my heartfelt sympathy; I am so sorry for your great loss. May the God who "binds up the brokenhearted" and "comforts all who mourn" sustain your family during this challenging time. Isaiah 61:1,2. To find out more regarding the hope for the dead visit and search "death".

My deepest sympathy to each of you. May the love and the memories that you shared be of comfort to you. Our heavenly Father promises that he will restore life to many who have fallen asleep in death. He assures us that the day is soon to come in which the tears of sorrow of death will be no more.
Revelation 21:3-5
John 5:28,29

My condolences to your family with the passing of Kay. I was blessed to meet her a few years ago when I was out visiting New York with my grandma, her sister Barbara. I have so many memories of grandma calling Kay on the phone to talk, many times for hours, about their lives, their families, and the times they had spent together. I know they both shared a profound love for their family, and what a wonderful, large family they had filled with a lot of love. I am praying for your family and for Kay’s soul that she may be in the presence of God enjoying eternal life with all of her family, fully reunited again. How beautiful for them to dwell together again with our loving God!
In Christ’s Peace,
Caroline Hutcheson

When we lose a loved one here on earth, you gain an angel in heaven that watches over us. Carlos and I send most sincere condolences to your family. Aunt Kay will be remembered by all of us. I have great memories from when you all lived in the country on top of the hill...her yelling at us to carry water to the house or to get off the cow we were trying to ride. I just think of all 10 of her siblings waiting for her at the gates along with Uncle Ray!
