Kathryn (Kay) Galvin, 93, passed away peacefully on Sunday, August 28, 2016, at the Country House, her home for the past several years.

Kathryn was born in Forest City, Iowa, and lived in several locations in Iowa and Wisconsin until her husband Dean retired. They then moved to Brevard, North Carolina, where Kay found much that she enjoyed. For many years she was an active member of the local mountain hiking group, the Pisgah Hikers. She directed the AAUW branch's annual book collection and was a volunteer tutor for "Rise and Shine", a program for children who need extra help with schoolwork. Music was a lifelong love and passion for Kay. She sang in both church and community choirs, and played the piano and French horn. In 2010 Kay moved to the Country House where she experienced both friendship and care.

She was preceded in death by her husband Dean and her son-law David Steenrod. She is survived by her daughters Ann Bogda (Richard), Carol Wick (Charles) and Ellen Steenrod as well as 7 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.

A memorial service for Kay will be held in the Danby Chapel of the Country House, 4830 Kennett Pike, Wilmington, at 10 am on Friday, September 2, 2016.
