The world has lost a beautiful Angel! My dear Aunty Kay!

Her entire life was dedicated to Jesus. Her every thought, was to

Serve him.

Aunty Kay was the kindest ,giving,thoughtful person I have ever met.

When I had my open heart surgery in 2008 Aunty Kay came and

cared for me for about three months! When my husband passed

suddenly, Aunty Kay came and helped me deal with the sudden passing.

I miss our daily conversations. She will always be in my heart. She was more than my Aunt she was also, my friend.

I met Kay several years ago at the Community Garden near her home. She had a small plot, and mine was by hers.
She was a witty, very nice lady, and occasionally with a little hue of shyness and naughtiness, reminding me of a teenager girl - that was truly how young she was! Her kindness was simply infused in her, and that drew people towards her, in a very natural way.
Her garden was always not lack of beautiful flowers, which she was able to call all of them by names. Later on, I learnt that she makes beautiful unique cards with pressed flowers and sends them to friends. And the very next day, she left a sealed plastic bag in my garden, with 4 wonderfully made cards by her! (see the picture below)
Mr Bunny - the yellow rabbit who lived around the garden - died. Kay buried him, with a little cross on top of his tomb with some flowers, inscribed with the date.
She gave up the little garden later due to health issues, but we were always so delighted to see her around the garden sometimes, and it is always such a privilege and pleasure to give her some produce to taste! She always tried to pull away the weeds no matter whose garden that might be. I was so happy to see her last summer visiting the garden after she recovered from a broken arm incident, and she smiled at me, saying 'one cannot live forever, you know'.
Kay will be missed deeply, but I know she is happy with our Lord.

To Kay Raspier's family,
We knew Kay in Campbell River. Once in a while, I would give her a lift to church from her mobile home court. She was a lovely, polite and demure lady. A true servant of others and the Lord Jesus Christ. She worked in Sunday school in the Baptist Church and cared for children. I have wondered where she was, or even if she was still with us, after we had moved away for awhile, and returned and did n't see her. I thank you for caring for her even as she had cared for others.

Kay was a dear friend - always had a kind word. We saw her often at our community garden and were privileged to share some of our produce with her. We could always count on her when we helped out at the Gleaners.
We will miss her so much, but it's a comfort to know that she has gone to be with her Lord and Savior.
Love Chuck and Beryl

While we all worked at K Mart, Kay took it on herself to have a group over to her place during lunch in Novemember and December to make little crafty gifts for staff and she always made it so much fun. She was always cheery and was always a pleasure to be around. Her family and friends will definitely miss her.

Auntie Katie was the best! From a small child and up until a few weeks ago...we kept in contact via letters. She was the greatest mentor in my life! I loved receiving the little cards with pressed flowers and her creative coloring book! There was such a peace about her....her voice was so comforting! I wish with all my heart I could be there to say goodbye! No more waiting for the mail in hopes of a letter from Auntie...I’m going to miss her dearly! Rest In Peace Auntie...you served Jesus well and He is going to give you a crown of GOLD!
Forever your niece....Cheryl

Memories of Kay Raspier
I met Kay when I started working for K-mart in Campbell River, BC in 1983. She always stood out because she had such a beautiful spirit. I worked with her there for 6 years. In 1987 I was going through some struggles in my life and I knew Kay went to church, so I asked her to pray for me. Her response was so caring when she agreed. She was an important part of my becoming a Christian and I was glad to have the opportunity to know her. She was such an encouragement to me and a real inspiration as a true follower of Jesus Christ. I will never forget Kay and will always remember her kindness. It has been over 10 years since I saw her last but glad I had the opportunity to talk with her and catch up a bit. She will be sadly missed but I know she is now in perfect peace and rest in heaven with God forever. I send my condolences to her family and friends.
