It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our Mom on March 21, 2021 at the age of 95, going on 45.

Loving mom of the late Bob (2020) and wife Pam (2018), Carol Cyphery (Doug), Rose Crowe (Mike), David (Ulla), Tim and Michael. She always had a special place in her heart for her ten grandchildren and fifteen great-grandchildren. Predeceased by her sisters, Evelyn Slobasky, Annie Horvat, Nellie Siddall, and Mary Champ. Survived by her brothers, Joe Duralia (Caroline) and John Duralia (Pat).

Mom was admired for her endless energy and passion for everything she did, whether it was her walking routine, gardening, her home decorating, her 50 year career with Avon, or baking the special treat for family and friends. She was a beautiful person inside and out, inspiring others to follow her example. A very special thank you to the staff at Lifetimes on Riverside, for their kindness, caring and love. Thanks also to everyone from Bayshore, ParaMed, VON and Hospice.

A private service will be held for the immediate family only. Donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or Hospice.

I was saddened to learn of Kay’s passing, and wish to extend my sincere condolences to her family.
I have fond memories of working together with Kay at Modrigal.
She was a lovely person who happily shared her many talents.
Her passion for fashion, family, home & gardening were inspiring.
May she rest in peace.

I admire Grandma so much, mainly for her resourcefulness and strength (6 kids, 10 grandchildren, and I think 15 great grand kids ... there's no question the woman had strength). People often remark on her style but I think her presence came from strength of character as much as any physical polish or glam. She could glam it up though!
I am deeply thankful that I had a chance to visit her in early 2020. She was gracious and warm, offering me red wine at - if memory serves - a pretty early time of day. Ha. Not for the feint of heart.
That was her. 95 years of strength. And warmth. What a legacy.

Dear Carol & Doug and family
Pete and I send our sincerest condolences on the loss of your mom.
She was so spunky and she always helped Peter at Christmas and birthday shopping for my gifts. He loved her help and input. She was always smiling and loved to chat. She had a full life.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

Our sympathy goes out to the Coulson family and John and Pat. Kay was such a beautiful, elegant lady . She was a great neighbour who was willing to share her iris's and gardening knowledge. I looked forward to our walks around the neighbour hood and beyond. She was such a vibrant, youthful person. Our heart and prayers go out to all her family

My sincere condolences to Kay family & friends. And especially to Carol who took such great care of her mother and brother over the past few years. I personally knew Kay and Michael when I visited Lifetimes. She was always dressed to the nines and her hair and makeup were perfect. Such an elegant lady, soft spoken and kind. But she was not pushed around she had a mind of her own. May your many cherished memories give you comfort at this time. She left a wonderful legacy in her large family. God bless everyone.

Aunt Kay was a beautiful, elegant lady. She had a heart of gold. I remember visiting her and Uncle Bob at their home. Whenever I visited she would make a fabulous, healthy meal from scratch. She took great pride in her garden. In my mind she seemed younger than her years. I have fond memories of them both.

Sending my deepest condolences to Carol and Doug, Rosemary and Mike, David and Ula ,Micheal and all the grandchildren and your extended family. All of you are in my thoughts.

Love your cousin ❤ Stephanie

My sincerest condolences on the loss of you Mother and Grandmother.
Mrs. Coulson was the epitome of elegance and graciousness. As a long time Avon Rep. also, I would see Mrs. Coulson at meetings and Banquet Award dinners. She always looked impeccable and many years younger.
