KLEPACHEK, Kathleen May

Kay was born in Lashburn, SK and grew up on a farm near Waseca.

She became a teacher in several one room schools. In High Prairie, AB she met Walter, the love of her life. The next year she transferred to a school on the Alaska Highway, he followed her up and they were married in 1954. Together they raised four children and in 2019 celebrated their 65th anniversary.

Kay returned to the U of A to get her B Ed. Degree at age 57, graduated and began teaching English as a Foreign Language full time.

Before she died Kay told us that with hard work and a bit of luck, she made all her dreams come true.

Cremation has taken place with a memorial to follow at a later date.

My friend Kay, who I met through SSESA. I helped Kay and Walter downsize their home to prepare to move into The Churchill. We spent many hours together in the process. The stories of Kay and Walter’s adventures began. Kay shared her love of square dancing with me…. oh the stories. Their times traveling in their motor home Walter recreated. The love she had for her family. Kay was always kind, caring, grateful and loving to everone. She always would say “we make a good team”. Forever I will cherish and appreciate all of what Kay brought into my life.
You will be forever in my heat ❤️
Thank you for being my friend
