It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lillian Kathleen (Kay) Morin, nee Marshall. Kay passed away on Monday, September 28th, 2015 at the age of 75 years.
Kay was born in Armstrong on May 23, 1940 to Frank and Willa Marshall. She was the youngest of nine siblings. She is predeceased by her parents, Willa and Frank; two sisters: Bernice (Gord) Burl and Francis (Len) Husband; four brothers: Bert (Myrtle), Tom (Peggy), Dick (Ann) and Norman (Norma) and three nephews. She leaves to mourn her passing, two sisters: Jean (Bill) Skolbalski and Alma Marshall as well as 15 nieces
and nephews, many dear friends and her favorite critter – her cat Duchess.
Kay moved from Armstrong to Golden in the 70’s. One of her early jobs was working as a desk clerk at the Northlander Hotel. Over the course of her career she worked at the plywood plant, post office, liquor store, guard for the RCMP and Mistaya Lodge.
Kay was always busy in her leisure time. She was well known at the golf course, the curling rink and the bowling alley. She was made a life member of the curling club in 1995 and was given an award by the golf club in 2011 for her contribution to the sport of golf. She was also an active member of the hospital auxiliary. Kay was raised on a farm in Armstrong and true to her roots, she loved horseback riding and spent many hours in her back yard gardening.
Her friends and family will remember Kay for her quick wit and her fantastic sense of humour. She loved a good practical joke, dressing up and playing pranks on her neighbors. Kay was a wonderful sister, Auntie, neighbor and friend and will be missed by all whose lives she touched.
There will be no formal service in accordance with Kay’s wishes. We encourage family and friends to remember and celebrate Kay’s life in a way that is meaningful to them.
