Kaye Mulvey

January 25, 1926 ~ May 23, 2018

Katrina Kay "Kaye" Mulvey died peacefully in the presence of her children on May 23, 2018. She was the youngest of four children, born and raised in Powers, OR.

Kaye graduated from Oregon State College (OSU) with a Business degree and went to work for Crown Zellerbach in Portland, OR. She moved to Kelso, Washington & had three children with her first husband, James Tregaskis. They divorced in 1969. Kaye moved to the Long Beach Peninsula in 1971 where she married Charles Mulvey. Together, they raised a blended family in Seaview, WA. Kaye and Charles successfully ran the Charles Mulvey Gallery (The Sea Chest) for 30 years until Charles' death in 2001.

While on vacation in the Palm Springs area, she met Leslie "Les" Cowan of Seattle, Washington. They were married and resided in Seaview until Les' death in 2013.

Kaye was a talented lady who was loved by her family, her friends & the Peninsula. She loved us all in return and never knew a stranger. Kaye was a fabulous cook and a remarkable hostess who enjoyed planning parties. She was passionate about her flower gardens- it was a common occurrence for strangers to stop at the house to take photographs of the colorful blooms. Kaye was known in her family as the "Energizer Bunny"- always on the go. She was happily involved with many organizations and groups on the Peninsula-- St. Peter's Episcopal Church, Mentor Club, the Herbert Zahl Foundation, founding organizer of the American Field Service (AFS) at Ilwaco High School, The Ilwaco Heritage Museum & several others. A close friend described her as "Eternally elegant, Kaye with an " 'e' ".

Kaye is survived by her three children: Scott (Linda) Tregaskis, Ann (Paul) Norman, Patricia (Tim) Bolen; Step children: Mary Mulvey, Jane (Gary) Young, Alice (Steve) Flaherty, Laura (Kent) Bell, Shannon (Doug) Tetz, Matthew Mulvey; and 14 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a memorial donation to the Ilwaco Heritage Museum, St Peter's Episcopal Church or a favored charity of your choosing.
