Kay was the daughter of Ethel and Henry Bosacker. She was raised on a farm in Minnesota with her 11 siblings. She met and married the love of her life and they “danced” their way through the years. They were both deeply rooted in their faith and active in their Church. Kay had a gift for design with a strong sense of style and fashion. In her 40s, golf became a passion and she played well into her 80s. She also loved the Cubs and attending games at Wrigley. Her favorite time of year was Christmas. Her gifts of planning, decorating, wrapping and baking drew us all.
We laughed, sang and experienced family.
