ANDERSON, Kathleen (Kay) Creola (nee Mason) Born in 1916 in Leamington, Ontario to loving parents, Thomas and Mary-Jane Mason. Kay was predeceased by her husband Ernest Anderson, (1997) former President of Anderson’s Funeral Home, who was an honorable man and husband of more than 50 years. Kay outlived, but continued to love her sisters, Lena and Elaine, and brothers, Tom and Albert. Kay is survived by her treasured daughters, Patricia, wife of Dr. Robert Konopasky of Halifax, and Ruthmary of Windsor. Proud grandmother to Dr. Aaron Konopasky, and his wife Dr. Abigail Konopasky of Maryland. Pictures of her great-grandchildren Annalise and Charlie were kept in arms reach and served as beacons when life was cloudy. Kay treasured all her nieces and nephews. She faithfully attended All Saints Anglican Church, Windsor, for decades, and enjoyed being a volunteer in the Kinette Club, Grace Hospital and the Windsor Art Gallery. She was a life member of Essex Golf and Country Club and the Windsor Club. Before her marriage to Ernie, Kay worked as a legal secretary for Rodd, Wagle, Whiteside and Jasperson. We want to thank the nurses of 2 West, Dr. Musgrove, and the management and staff of the Sun Parlor Home. Like family and friends, these good people made Kay’s life happy and comfortable. Visitation will be held at Anderson Funeral Home & Cremation Centre, 895 Ouellette Avenue (519-254-3223) on Sunday from 2-4 & 7-9 p.m. Funeral services will be held in the Anderson Memorial Chapel on Monday, October 24, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. Interment Victoria Memorial Gardens. In Lieu of flowers, donations to All Saints Anglican Church or Charity of Your Choice would be appreciated by the family. Please join us in remembering Kay by visiting her memorial at

Dear Ruth, Pat, Bob and Family,
So sorry to hear of Aunt Kay's passing. A wonderful wife, mother and I'm sure an extremely proud grandmother.

Kay is the last of the Anderson family and will be remembered by many of us as a caring, loving "lady" in the true sense.

Even though I'm currently out of province my thoughts,prayers and memories are with all of you.

Ruthmary, Patricia, Bob & Family

Though I’m unable to be present to share your memories, I wish you comfort even as you mourn.

Hello Pat and Ruthie: So sorry to hear of Aunt Kay's passing. Glenn and I send our regrets that we are not able to be "down home" with you to celebrate Aunt Kay's life. How I remember the Mason holiday gatherings and the singsongs around the piano with all the aunts' and uncles' crazy but happy predictable behaviours. Your Mom and Dad were truly a loving couple who really enjoyed their journey together. Whenever I think of Aunt Kay, I always remember her smile and gentle laugh. You will be in our thoughts and prayers, especially at this time.
As ever - Jackie and Glenn Hodge

Dear Pat & Ruthmary: We've come a long way from those girls sitting around the Rumoli table expecting your mother to call and check on you. But I'd bet all my pennies that she'll keep checking. With fondest memories and much love, Mary.
