Kathryn 'Kay' Pascoe, formerly of Laurel, passed away January 24, 2020 in Everett Washington. Kay was born in Butte Montana on December 5, 1924, to Martha and Michael Donahue. She attended school in Butte, then went on to graduate as an RN from the St. James School of Nursing, also in Butte. Many lifelong friendships were formed in her years of nursing and she was very proud of her career in this field. 

Kay married Jack Pascoe May 25, 1947. They shared their lives together for 49 years. Jack passed away in June 1996. Mom was also preceded in death by her beloved daughter Kathy and by her siblings Billy, Lucille, Bob (Betty) and Jack.

Left to mourn Kay are her children: Sue Royer, Tim (Barb) Pascoe, Joey (Alan) Riesinger and Nancy (Terry) Hart; her grandchildren: Dana (Lance) Brown, Amy (John) Wiklund, Amber (Aaron) Rogers, Amanda (Nathan) Dwyer, Russell (Dana) Hart and Keith (Jessica) Hart. Grannie treasured and was very present in the lives of her great-grandchildren: Jake and Samantha Brown, Waylon and Libby Wiklund, Zoe and Finnegan Rogers, Ellen, Benjamin and Molly Dwyer, Bethany and Weston Hart and Knox Hart.

A celebration of Kay's life will take place this July in Laurel. Memorials can be made to:

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital  501 St. Jude Place  Memphis TN 38105, or a charity of your choice.

Mom, you have left a wonderful legacy to your children and their families. 95 years of life, well-lived. Enjoy the reunions—we love and miss you.
