It is with profound sadness, that we announce the passing of Katherine Anne "Kay" Edwards, loving wife to Norman Edwards of Killaloe, on 23 December 2019 at the age of 81.
Kay left us peacefully in the presence of Norman and one of her granddaughters, Brianne, after a short hospital stay at the St Francis Memorial Hospital of Barry's Bay.

Born in Kirkland Lake, Ontario, in 1938, to John and Mary Ostrowski, she married Norman in 1958 after a chance meet on a train to Northern Ontario, and lived the life of a nomadic military wife until they finally settled in Killaloe, Ontario, in 1998. If travel was one of her favourite pastimes, her passion was family. No where was she happier than when surrounded by family.

Devoted wife to Norman, she is the much loved mother to Steven (Sandra), Richard (Monica), Michael (Beth), Christine (Ian) and Valerie (Pierre). Cherished grandmother to Laila (Craig), Melissa (Kevin), Jon (Pan), Samantha, Meghan (Brendan), Liam (Shannon), Christopher (Natalia), Shaynah (Paraic), Brianne (Cody), Elise (Jordan) and Alexandre; and treasured great-grandmother to Mya, Matthew, Parker, Haley, Lucas, Asher, Aurora, Fionnlagh and Clara. Predeceased by her youngest daughter Valerie, her family is delighted to know that she is enjoying a much-anticipated reunion with Valerie and other members of her family.

Visitation will be held at Zohr Family Funeral Home, Killaloe, On Thursday, January 2, 2020 from 6 - 8pm and again Friday morning after 9:30am. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Andrew's Catholic Church, Killaloe, at 11am. Reception to follow at the church. Spring interment in the parish cemetery.

As an expression of sympathy, and in lieu of flowers, please consider donation to the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation or to St. Andrew's Catholic Church floor restoration project. Tributes, condolences and donations can be made online at

Norman and the children would like to acknowledge and thank the doctors, nurses and volunteers at St Francis Memorial Hospital for your kindness, graciousness, and gentle manners. Your sincerity, tremendous love of those in your care and valued support were instrumental in helping us in our time of need.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. May God grant you His peace and comfort. We were hoping to get up to Killaloe for the visitation but unfortunately were unable to do so. Memories are rich at a time like this and I am sure you remember with great joy and thankfullness that you were able to get your parents to Rome and that your Mom was able to enjoy it so very much. We are thinking of you and if there is anything that we can do for you before you return to Rome, please let Kelly know and she in turn will let us know. Skip & Anne Taylor.

Dear Chris and Ian: We sincerely wish we were able to attend your Mom's funeral and wish to express our sympathy to you and Chris, Shaynah and Brianna and all her family on her passing. I did have the pleasure of meeting Kay on a couple of occasions and couldn't help but notice what a warm and loving woman she was. We are so sorry to hear of your sorrow at what should be a such joyous and happy family time. Having lost my Mom this past summer I know how painful this must be for all of you. We hope that being surrounded by friends and loved ones will help you to remember the wonderful woman that she was. Know that many of us that are unable to attend are thinking of you and are holding you close in our thoughts - wishing our thoughts were hugs. We were hoping to rearrange things tomorrow to attend the funeral but we have family members from out of town visiting with us for Christmas who are leaving tomorrow afternoon - so I am really torn. I wish it were different.
