1927 – 2014

Our dear mother, Lillian Josephine Penfold (Kaye) nee Hagen passed away in her sleep at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre, Red Deer on Monday, April 28, 2014 after 87 wonderful years of sharing her love and devotion with her family. She was born on March 29, 1927 at Provost, Alberta. Mom will always be remembered as the rock that we all depended upon to provide us with many years of wisdom and laughter; and taught us to strive to be the best we could be. She will forever be in the hearts of her two daughters, Linda Kaye, Kathy (Jim) Ayotte, sons, Dennis Kaye, Bob (Carol) Kaye, grandsons, Tony (Julie) Kaye, Justin Ayotte, Chris Kaye and Corey Kaye, her granddaughters, Cheryl-Anne Ayotte, Shannon (Kurt) Swekla and Katrina (Chris) Thompson, great grandson, Liam Kaye and great granddaughters, Myla Kaye and Xoie and Sofia Swekla. She is also survived by her eldest sister, Inga, daughter-in-law, Bev and cousin, Rhoda, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Mom was fortunate to have loved and been loved by her first husband, Alban Kaye and second husband, Howard Penfold. She was predeceased by her husbands, as well as her sisters, Ruth, Ida and a brother, Julius (Joe). Mom spent many years working at the Buffalo Hotel, Michener Centre and the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre. She had a great faith in her Lord and always knew He would never give her more than she could handle – and He never did. She lived in her house for sixty-four years and until the day of her stroke, took loving care of her flowers and yard, drove her car, handled all her affairs and lived her life to the fullest. In place of flowers, Memorial Donations in Lillian’s honor may be made directly to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Alberta at

A Memorial Service to celebrate Lillian’s Life will be held at the Deer Park Alliance Church, 2960 – 39 Street, Red Deer, Alberta on Monday, May 5, 2014 at 11:00 a.m.
