ARMSTRONG (nee: Willoughby)

Kathleen (Kay) Mary

1931 – 2014

“They say behind every great man is a great woman. I don’t know that I am a great man, but Kay sure was a great woman.” With those words, W.T. Armstrong paid public tribute to his wife of more than 60 years; crediting her for their life’s work. On December 26th, Kay’s journey came full circle, succumbing peacefully to illness. Kay was known for being an outgoing, elegant and humble person. She was a community builder, and tireless volunteer. For those of us that she left, she will be missed, but her spirit will live on in our hearts, and memories. We take solace in the fact that she will be reunited with those that went before her; WT, and Murray. Born in Lloydminster Saskatchewan on February 26, 1931 to Percy and Ester Willoughby, she is survived by her brother Jerry Willoughby, son William Grant Armstrong (Sharon), daughter-in-law Marion Armstrong; her grandchildren Jennifer Hall (Craig), Matthew Armstrong (Kirsten), Nikki Armstrong (James Bennett), and her great grandchildren, Calleigh and Beckett Hall, and Annabelle, William, and Kaitlynne Armstrong. As well as many other extended family members and friends. At Kay’s request, there will be no funeral. In lieu of gifts or flowers, donations can be made to Parkinson Society Canada.
