Elizabeth K North

Phoenix Kay's long wait to join her husband Mitchell and her son Mike in our Father's arms is over. She was born October 3rd, 1931 in Appleton WI and raised in Quincy, IL and St. Louis MI. Kay graduated from Washington University with a Bachelor's degree in Education and a Master's degree in Audiology and Speech Pathology. She taught children with disabilities at Gompers after she moved to Phoenix in 1958. Kay met the love of her life, Mitchell North and was married in June of 1961. Eager for a family, Kay became a full time wife and mother a year later with the birth of their first child. She devoted the next 20 years to raising three children before resuming her teaching career in the Phoenix Union High School District. She was a parishioner at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church. Kay cherished the friendship of so many at work, A de A women's club, and her neighborhood. She adored the company of her grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Kay is survived by her daughter Julie Rehling (Chuck), her son Eric (Karen), grandchildren Mitchell, Thomas and Casey Rehling and Victoria and Elias North. Preceding her in death after 32 years of marriage, her beloved husband Mitchell, son Mitchell Charles North Jr. (aka Mike), and parents Albert and Alice Smith.
