EARLY, Kathleen Marie (Kay) - Sept. 5, 1920 to Feb. 15, 2020
After close to a full century of enjoying life in Greensville, Ont., with an impressive collection of family, friends and neighbours, Kay passed away peacefully at her home on Saturday February 15, 2020. The beloved wife of John Maxwell (Jack) Early, Kay was predeceased by her parents, Herbert and Cora Marshall, her brother Edward and sister-in-law Geraldine, her mother-in-law Gladys Early and brother-in-law Robert Early. Kay was an important link between generations: she was the loving aunt of Gaye-Ann (Terry) Miosi, Nancy (Konrad) Krebsz, Debbie (Dan) Robinson and Randy (Toni) Marshall, and she outrageously spoiled a growing bevy of great and great-great nieces and nephews.
Kay never lost her enthusiasm for cheering on the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Toronto Blue Jays and always had strong opinions on the Jay's roster. She was a prodigious knitter who made and donated thousands of colourful hats and mittens for needy families and charities and was a Sunday School teacher and parishioner at Christ Church (Anglican), Flamborough. She loved dogs, Christmas, and gardening. Kay worked for more than 40 years at Westinghouse.
Kay and Jack spent many weekends dancing with friends at the elegant, old Brant Inn in Burlington in the 1940s and 50s. Later, they swapped the dance floor for the less glamourous but equally happy RV camping. Kay was blessed with wonderful and caring neighbours, Donna Burns and Robin and Laura Smith who were always there to help. The family appreciates the compassionate care shown by Dr. J. Williams and caregivers Venus, Justina, Ashley, Sando, Cheryl, Yeny, Gelisa and Arlene. She will be forever missed and remembered. If desired, a donation in memory of Kay may be made to Christ Church, Flamborough (Anglican), 92 Highway #8, Dundas, Ontario L9H 4V5. Visitation at SMITH'S FUNERAL HOME, 485 Brant Street, (one block north of City Hall), BURLINGTON (905-632-3333), on Friday February 21, 2020 from 3pm until 7pm. A Funeral Service will be held Saturday February 22, 2020 at Christ Church (Anglican) Flamborough, 92 Highway #8, Dundas, Ontario L9H 4V5 the Chapel at 11 am.

My condolences to you Nancy&Koni and your entire family. This has been a long hard journey for all of you. What a lovely photo of Aunt Kay. This is how you want to remember her.
I have several memories of spending time picking strawberries at the farm and getting in trouble for those strawberry throwing matches. But the best/worst memory is of Uncle Jack and Aunt Kaye taking Nancy and I camping up at Grand Bend one summer when we were about 15. Afternoon at the beach hunting for boys and one whopping sunburn that turned into sunstroke for me. A long drive home sitting on a pillow to help east the pain. Aunt Kaye was so concerned for me. I will never forget that trip.
She is at peace now and you and your family will truly miss her and the memories that you have from being so close to both her and your uncle for so many years. Love Linda Wilson
