Granta Kay "Kay"

Kay went to join her Lord and Savior March 20, 2011 after a long valiant battle with cancer. She left this life with her husband and children by her side and in full knowledge of her everlasting salvation.

Kay was born on January 31, 1953 in Spokane, the youngest of 12 children of Harry and Lucille Templeton. She spent her youth in the Spokane area, attending Mead schools and graduating from Mean High School in 1971. Following high school she immediately began working, finally finding her life's passion helping counsel people in recovery at Miryam's House. In 1971 she married Patrick McAleer, who preceded her in death in 1983. In 1977 she married Terry Lessig and they made their home in the Spokane and Loon Lake areas, raising their two daughters.

Kay is survived by her husband Terry; daughters Monica McAleer Larsen (Lane) and Heather Lessig and grandchildren Makayla, Devon, and Tanner; brothers Steve and Don; sisters Carol, Helen, Margret, and Clara; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. Kay was preceded in death by her son, Mathew McAleer, her parents, her brothers Bob, Jim, and Wilbur and her sisters Harriet and Mary.

Kay enjoyed making beautiful jewelry for her friends and family and was passionate about her walk with her Lord and being active in Life Center North.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, April 1st at 1:00 PM at Timberview Christian Fellowship, 15511 N Howe Road, Mead, WA, followed by an informal potluck reception. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials to Miryam's House or Hospice of Spokane.
