KATHERINE (KAY) PAULINE MCCRACKEN
August 24, 1930 - August 22, 2020
She is survived by her daughter Colleen Williams (Martin), her brother Bob (Lil), and sister Betty Lagimodiere. "Gammy" will be sadly missed by her grandchildren, Marcus and Katelyn, with whom she had a very special relationship. Katherine was predeceased by her son Ken (Sindee).
Katherine grew up on the family farm in Ile Des Chenes with her sister and four brothers and liked to share stories of those happy years.
Kay had an aptitude for keyboard instruments and played the accordion and piano with sublimity, a trait that has been passed down to Katelyn. She was very self sufficient in all aspects and thus became adept at such things as dry walling and painting. Her favourite pastime was being with Colleen and her grandchildren and helping out wherever she could. She was always first in line to help, babysitting, garage sales and even painting and always with a smile and a laugh.
She was much loved and leaves us rich in memories.
There will be no funeral service. A private service will take place at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba or any charity of one's choice.
I have fought the good fight, I have
finished the race, I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7

Colleen and family.. Sad to hear of your mom's passing. I will always remember her as such a strong and beautiful lady. I lost my mom recently, but I know she felt the same about Kay. We were neighbours on Moore/River Rd. Keep the good memories close !!! Janice Hudson (Lobson) - Posted by: Janice Hudson (Long ago Neighbor ) on: Sep 02, 2020
