Trask, Kathryn "Kitty" |
Kitty Trask, 81, of Albuquerque, passed away unexpectedly November 19, 2016.
She was preceded in death by her adored husband, Richard "Dick" Trask; and her parents, Maxwell and Lois Thornton.
Kitty is survived by her three sons and their wives, Rick (Liceth), Ron (Gloria), and Randy (Sarah). She also leaves behind six grandchildren, K.T. and Rico Trask, Torey Standley (Chris), Adam Gurule (Beth), Teresa Moore (Bob), and Randy Trask, Jr., as well as five great-grandchildren, Whitley, Gage, Jordan, Charlotte and Beau. She is also survived by her sister, Margaret; her sister-in-law, Gloria; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Born in Brookfield, MO, Kitty lived in many different places, but none she loved more than Albuquerque, her home for close to 50 years. She met the love of her life on a blind date in Aberdeen, MD in 1953. Kitty and Dick were married in 1955 and began a 56-year adventure that spanned the globe.
Kitty owned and operated the Pueblo Loft, a Native American art gallery, in Albuquerque's Nob Hill, for decades. Through this venture Kitty established many life-long friendships with both the artists and her customers. Kitty was an active member of John XXIII Catholic Community where her dedication was recognized with the parish's Volunteer of the Year Award.
Kitty was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Her passion for life was evident to the leagues of people whose lives she touched. Kitty's loss will be felt by many.
