She was raised north of Cochrane. She met and married Donald Hodgkinson in 1942. They moved to the farm at Elnora and raised 5 children. Kay lived to work. Her famous saying was “Let’s get Cracking!” Her garden was enormous and was truly her favorite place to be. Her flowers and vegetables were plentiful. She was predeceased by her sisters Irene and Vera, and later by her loving husband Don in 2011. She will be lovingly remembered by her sisters Nora and Aggie and her brother John; her children Donna (Phil), Ev (Lyle), Shirley (Mahlon), Bev (Dan) and Bill (Kathy); 11 grandchildren; 10 great grandchildren and 2 great grand dogs. As per Kathleen’s wishes, a private family gathering to celebrate her life will be held at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to STARS Air Ambulance.
