Kathryn Buell Obituary

Ada Kathryn Buell

Resident of San Jose

Born Mar 8, 1924 to Harry Bedford Forrest and Verna Elizabeth Hitch in Sand Springs, OK. Grew up throughout Oklahoma & Texas. Arrived in Ordway, CO in 1941, met Donald Allen Buell, graduated from Ordway High in 1942, learned nursing in Pueblo, & Denver CO hospitals, passing the state boards in 1945. Kay & Don married June 29, 1945 in Taos, NM and moved to Calif where she worked in pediatrics in Oakland & San Mateo. Kay & Don moved to San Jose in 1951 where they remained until her passing on Mar 2, 2012. Her life was cherished by Don, her husband of 66 years, children (Ralph + Agnes, Robert + Sheri, Beth + Steve), grandchildren (Jeff + Paula, Stephanie + Jon, Brian + Katy, Chris + Tanya, Craig + Rachell, Kevin, Tasha), and great-grandchildren (Amelia, Lukas, Declan, Milo, Bethany). And there are others:

Saturday lunch bunch of 1946 United Air Lines power plant dept, families & friends of the neighborhood kids, Cub Scouts & Girl Scouts, plus the children of the Sunday School, Preschool, high school youth group, and Bible study at Willow Glen United Methodist Church (WG-UMC). Whether you knew it or not, Kay was always your 'mom' because she believed everyone deserved a loving family.

Her love and devotion will be celebrated on Mar 31, 2012 at 2:00 pm at WG- UMC. In lieu of flowers Kay would feel truly honored by gifts to WG-UMC for the Woodhaven Preschool (408) 294-9796.
