April 1923 - December 2012
It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our cherished mother, Kay DiPrimio (nee Katerina Marteniuk). Kay passed away peacefully with her loving family by her side on December 23, 2012. Kay was born April 22, 1923 in Smokey Lake, Alberta. Family was the most important thing in Kay's life; she was a devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, auntie and friend. Kay was an extremely strong, independent woman who always spoke, thought, and behaved with great thoughtfulness and compassion. Kay saw the beauty in all the people, places, and things around her. She was a passionate gardener, a lover of sports and the outdoors and she was an extremely talented and competitive opponent at any activity she participated in. Lovingly remembered by her children: Wayne (Gayle), Maryann (Don), Ron (Shirley); grandchildren: Nathan (Jamie), Russell (Laurie), Bryan (Dianna), Taylor, Caedyn, Len and Cindy. Kay is further survived by 10 great- grandchildren and her sister Micky. Predeceased by her loving husband Tony; brothers Nick, Bill, John, Mike, Alex and George; and sisters Rose, Annie, Mary (Penny), Dora (Dodie), Helen (Bunny) and Nancy. Heartfelt thanks go out to the doctors and staff at Ridge Meadows Hospital and especially to the staff on 2 West for their loving care of our mother in her final days. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a charity of your choice. A celebration of Kay's life will be held at the Maple Ridge Golf Course (20818 Gold Lane) at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, January 18, 2013. Condolences may be sent to
