Kay B. Snodgrass Obituary
April 28, 1940 - March 26, 2016 Kay B. Kessler was born in 1940 in Bogota, Colombia. Born to European émigré parents and raised in Bogotá, she attended boarding school in Toronto and lived her adult life in the United States. She met Bob Snodgrass in Boston, MA when both were students. They married in 1960 and had three children born in 1962, 1964, and 1972. She attended the Massachusetts College of Art, majoring in printmaking and graduated in 1978, when one of her drawings qualified for a traveling national exhibit. She and her family moved to Southern California in 1980. She worked part time for Women at Work and joined many art organizations. She created etchings and other artwork in her garage studio winning many awards. Her work shows a love of detail. The Pasadena Society of Artists honored her with a distinguished artist exhibition in September 2015. Kay Snodgrass died at her Pasadena home of pulmonary fibrosis on March 26, 2016. She was unique, unpretentious and had an impish sense of humor, much loved by her family and friends. She is survived by her husband Bob and by her three children Bryan Snodgrass, Portland, OR, Wayne Snodgrass, Oakland, CA and Angelina Snodgrass Godoy, Seattle WA and six grandchildren. A memorial service will be held in May.
