Kay, our outstanding champion, kind caregiver, and loyal supporter, died Wednesday afternoon in her home.
Our Founder, Kath McCormack, was with her and has reported: “Kay made her transition today. She was beautiful and peaceful and her ascension was fabulously gentle. Way to go, winter solstice Kay!” – Kath.
Kay was an Advisory Board Member and Visionary Club Supporter. As a massage therapist she gave endless gift certificates and the friends and family rate to Healing Center clients and staff. Many within our community know her from the fabulous massages they received during our Early and Transition Group Retreats. (“My Early Group met in Kay’s house before there was a “Healing Center”- Rebecca”)
Kay and Kath were sorority sisters at University of Oregon (Kappa Alpha Theta) though Kath keeps that under wraps. They have been friends ever since. Kay was the biggest, most loyal supporter of The Healing Center. She told everyone, referred many and even asked people to donate their tips to The Healing Center instead of to her.
Kay believed in The Healing Center’s work for many reasons. Her sister, Jane, died many years ago when Kay’s nephews were in their early teens. Kay has also seen the amazing work that The Healing Center does with client families.
Kay was an amazing individual and lived her life with zest! Her beautiful energy, quirky humor, healing hands and sweet smile were a special gift to many – she will be profoundly missed.
