Kathryn Virginia (Bowie) Hewitson
Oct. 31, 1914 - July 7, 2014
Formerly of Pleasanton
Kathryn died peacefully in her sleep in Angels Camp, CA. Kathryn, known as "Kaye", was born in Santa Cruz, CA and spent her school-age years in Palo Alto and later in Tracy where she graduated from high school and met her husband-to-be, Louis.
Following their marriage, Louie and Kaye made their home together in Pleasanton where they raised four children: Rae (Vargas), Patricia (Cates), Louis ("Rusty") and Janet (Smith). In retirement, the two moved to Murphys, CA where they embraced rural life.
Kaye enjoyed knitting, home decorating, gardening and entertaining friends and family. She was the loving grandmother of ten: Michael, Eric and Nancy Vargas, Christopher and Carl Cates, Jr., Jennifer and John Smith, and Kathryn, Megan and Louis Hewitson. She had five great granchildren.
Kaye was preceded in death (in her one hundredth year) by her husband and her eldest daughter as well as two adoring grandchildren.
She was buried alongside Louie at St. Augustine cemetery on Friday July 11 after a private graveside service. A Celebration of Life will be held in the fall.
Memorial donations may be made in Kathryn Hewitson's name to: Foothill Village Employee Fund, 1400 Foothill Village Drive, Angels Camp, CA 95222
