Catalina (Kay) Hull, 93, passed away on December 22, 2013 in Danville, CA. For the past ten years, she had suffered from Alzheimers disease. She was born on April 29, 1920 in Clifton AZ, where she lived for five years. After her father died, the family moved to El Paso and then Los Angeles. After high school, she attended the LA County General Hospital School of Nursing, and subsequently joined the US Army Nursing Corp where she served, from 1944 to 1946, in Burma and
India, reaching the rank of lieutenant. She had many interesting stories to tell about working on the Burma Road in Assam, India.

After leaving the army she worked as a school nurse until 1949. She was married to her husband, Robert Hull, in 1947. They raised their children in San Marino and after her husband's retirement in 1973, moved to Corona del Mar. She returned to school in the sixties and earned her BA in nursing and MS in public health from Cal State LA in 1965. She was active in the Tumor Clinic in Pasadena and the National Charity League. She later worked as a school nurse from 1969 to 1982, where she influenced many young lives in El Sereno and San Pedro. After retirement she volunteered at a free medical clinic in Orange County.

Kay was a loving wife, mother and grandmother, great grandmother, sister and aunt. She was beautiful, full of energy, generous and a hard worker. She loved to travel, sew, volunteer, walk and garden. She will be greatly missed by all that knew her.
