Kay Adair Lennon, of Monroe, passed away on Saturday, November 24. She and her husband William, who predeceased her in 2016, lived in their home for 53 years.

Born May 3, 1936 in Gordon, WI to Russell and Katherine MacDonald, Kay was the second oldest of 7 children and is survived by her siblings, Bonnie, Sue, Robert, Douglas, Warren and Cameron MacDonald. Kay graduated from high school in Superior, WI and as a people person quickly landed a job at TWA airlines as a stewardess. She traveled internationally working in first class where she met many celebrities including Frank Sinatra who told her she had “crazy blue eyes.” During that time, she met her husband and took on her beloved role as wife and mother.

Kay was a creative soul and loved playing bridge, quilting, needlepoint, painting, writing poems, crafting, and telling stories. She loved cooking and baking for family and friends and had an active social life and circle of good friends and family who loved her dearly. Kay’s positivity shone through everything she did and her exuberance was contagious. She was full of life and brought a smile and kind word to everyone she met. Kay will be deeply missed.

Kay is survived by her beloved children Bill & Pam Lennon, Mason, OH; Bob & Heather Lennon, Fredericksburg, VA; Kathleen & Scott Mason, Newtown, CT; Tim & Lauri Lennon, Brookfield, CT; and Jennifer Lennon & Brett Ochs, Boulder, CO.

Her infectious smile and grand stories are something I will cherish in my heart of memories forever. When I jump off Cami's bridge this summer my words will be I LOVE YOU AUNT KAY!!! So proud to be her namesake....Love, Kay Adair, the 2nd💖

I had the great privilege of working with Kay at Santa Fuel and hearing her endearing laugh! The Christmas decorations she did there brought all of us well into the spirit of the season. Also her home Christmas party was one Ann & I loved, she would put the North Pole to shame. So much joy and energy wrapped up in a loving and pretty lady gave us all a smile. Your family will have millions of great memories as will all of us who were privileged to have known Kay and Bill. We all will have smiles through the tears, may God Bless Kay and your family.

We met when I was 20..on Flint Ridge Rd. We became fast friends. We shared so many things...funny and sad. Kay was always there for me...and everyone. Our children played together on the famous Lennon side door yard...we laughed. We had wonderful parties at the beach. We wore great bathing suits then!!
Kay and Bill had fabulous Christmas parties. Indeed, the food was beyond delicious.
Memories... happy memories of a wonderful friend, wife, and mother. We were all blessed to call Kay our friend. Rest in peace and quiet with your beloved Bill.
Hugs, forever... Valerie and Jim

I loved how Kay genuinely wanted to know all about my family and what was going on with them everytime I saw her. She lit up the room with her smile and her stories. And, I loved her accent!
