KAY, Beatrice (Miller) Beatrice (Miller) Kay died peacefully in her own bed at Atria Hamilton Heights, West Hartford, with family by her side, Tuesday, (December 19, 2006), a few months before her 104th birthday. Born to Joseph and Esther (Milstein) Miller in Cleveland, OH, "Beatzie" was one of 9 children. She was predeceased by the love of her life, her husband, Vernon "Deatz" Kay. After living in Chicago for several years they settled in Hartsdale, NY where together they enjoyed all the cultural and culinary attractions of the big city. "Beatzie" was an avid reader, a Master Points bridge player, and a lover of fashion, nature, French food, and beautiful music. She is survived by a niece, Judy Miller Silver, and her husband, Dr. Herb Silver of West Hartford; a nephew, Wesley Miller and his wife, Sherri, of Denver, a nephew, Bobby Miller and his wife, Debbie, of St. Louis, and several grandnieces and grandnephews including Roger Cibella of Washington, David and Meg Miller of Colorado, Nick and Emily Miller of California, Terry Edda Miller and Andrew Marlowe of California, Susan Ringler of Ohio, Steve and Melissa Schwartz of New Jersey, David and Heather Silver of Connecticut, Rand Silver of New York, and a devoted friend, Mario Cartularo of New York. The family has been indebted to the caring staff of Atria Hamilton Heights for the past 5 years, to the special aides from Interim Home Health Care, and especially to the loving devotion of the McLean Home Hospice team. All of them made "Beatzie" feel like "Queen Bea" and assisted her departure with dignity, grace, and love. "Beatzie's" remains will be buried next to those of her husband in Washington, PA Cemetery. As were her wishes, there will be no calling hours; however, a memorial service is planned to be held at Atria Hamilton Heights on Sunday, January 14, 2007, at 3 p.m. to celebrate the life of an elegant lady. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be sent to McLean Home Hospice Care, 75 Great Pond Rd., Simsbury, CT 06070, or to a charity of the donor's choice.
