Kathleen (Kay) Staite (Edmonson)

She was predeceased by her first husband Thomas Edmondson and her second husband Kenneth Staite. Survived by Keith (Theresa) Edmondson of Montrose; Leora Smith of Trail; Gordon (Gloria) Edmondson of Duncan; six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

Kay loved to knit and also loved cats. She raised three children, enjoyed visiting her friends and being with family.

Kay’s family would like to acknowledge the wonderful care received from the Home Support Staff…to Rosewood…to Poplar Ridge…to Columbia View Lodge, nursing and recreation staff, as well as the administration of facilities. Also to the many ambulance and emergency staffs, thank-you.

Mom particularly loved her doctor, as do we, Dr. Susan Benzer. Thank-you.

A graveside service will be held in the summer. Al Grywacheski of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with the arrangements.

When I come to the end of the road,

And the sun has set for me

I want no tears or gloom-filled room.

Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little ~ but not too long,

And not with your head bowed low,

Remember the love that we once shared,

Miss me ~ but let me go.
