A unique situation, Kaye and sister Grace were married to brothers, Vic & Joe. Her photo pictured here was taken at God daughter, Veronica McPhee Hadrian’s wedding.

So sorry to learn of Kaye’s passing. I enjoyed being in her presence many times, over the years as she shared stories infused with light and laughter. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to visit with her on a few occasions at the Madeline prior to her move back to Cape Breton.
I hope that all your wonderful memories hold her close to you always.

Heidi Rankin and Family:

Condolences on the loss of your Aunt Kaye. She was a lovely generous lady and great fun. When she and your Mom, Grace, got together everyone had lots of laughs and plenty of food! I remember attending many gatherings at the apartments on Magazine Hill.

She will be missed by many.
