Patricia Fletcher Kay, 85, of Warren, Pa., passed away Saturday, Oct. 12, 2013, following a brief illness of several weeks.
Pat was born Aug. 31, 1928, in Jamestown, N.Y., the daughter of the late George and Ada Probin Fletcher. In 1954 she married Thomas E. Kay and resided in Youngsville, Pa., for nearly 20 years, and later moved to Warren, Pa.
A 1948 graduate of the Knox School in Cooperstown, N.Y., she worked in England and New York for two years before returning to Jamestown. She was a member of St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church in Youngsville.
Pat and her husband, Tim enjoyed travel throughout their lifetime. She was also a great fan of Ragtime and Dixieland music and occasionally played the piano at home for her own enjoyment.
Above all, she was a consummate golf enthusiast. Growing up on No. 4 at Moonbrook Country Club, she was taught the game by her father and played her whole life into her 80s. A lifetime member of Conewango Valley Country Club, and a past women's champion, she was also a 25year member of Port Royal Golf Club, Southampton, Bermuda. Her last trip to England was to attend the Ryder cup.
She is survived by her husband, Thomas E. Kay of Warren, Pa.; three children: Elizabeth K. (Adolph) Morando of Lakewood, N.Y., Fletcher T. Kay of Warren, Pa., and Christopher T. (Lori) Kay of Watertown, Mass; five grandchildren: Catherine K. (Steve) Powell, Sara S. (Jim) Schaefer, Caroline S. (Case) Allin, Andrew T. Kay and Leslie M. Kay; and her greatgrandchildren: Elizabeth K. Schaefer, Theodore J. Schaefer and Claire S. Powell.
She was preceded in death by her two sisters: Shirley Irwin and Doreen Anderson Sorensen.
