Kathryn (Kay) Rose Trapp Green|
1942 - 2013
We lost our beloved wife, mother, sister, aunt and friend Kathryn (Kay) Rose Trapp Green on December 2, 2013, at the age of 71. Kay was born June 22, 1942 in Salt Lake to Warren Weldon Trapp and Betty Rose Harris Trapp. She married Bruce Barton Green on August 22, 1964 in Salt Lake City, Utah and worked for the telephone company until the birth of her son Christopher in 1971.
Words cannot express the depth of her loss to us. But still we hope to celebrate the sweetness, the generosity and gentleness, the hospitality of soul that our Kay is made of, even as we begin now to miss her so much. Kay adored her husband Bruce and her children Christopher and Kelly. She was the warmest and most nurturing of persons to us all. She loved everything to do with homemaking and made her home her pride and joy, stylish yet utterly original and always warm and welcoming.
One of Kay's special loves was holiday entertaining, and those of us she left behind will cherish memories of holidays spent with her and her family. The food was delicious, the trees spectacular, the house buzzing with conversation. The exchange of gifts was never material but rather a most heartfelt event orchestrated by Kay that made everyone feel especially thought of and loved. The star of each party was Kay's dinner table - decorated with her personal treasures, with her mother's china and mixed linens, with fruit and flowers and candles, and brilliant thrift store finds loaded with good food, composed to perfectly reflect its season. The table always sparkled just like Kay, a lady with originality, flair and great style, and forever in our hearts...
Kay is survived by her husband Bruce Barton Green and her daughter Kathryn Kelly Green (JR Ruppel), and granddogs Dodger and Pinball. Preceded in death by her son, Christopher Warren Green.
A viewing for Kay will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, December 7, 2013, at Larkin Sunset Lawn, 2350 East 1300 South in Salt Lake City. The graveside service will follow at 1:00 p.m.
