  • Kay Marie was loved for the sweetheart she was. We will always remember her smile, her laugh and her good nature.

  • On behalf of the Oliver family, we are very sorry for your loss. Kay Marie was our favorite babysitter to the Oliver boys on Westdale Place! She used to let us stay up late and watch “Dr. Shock”!! We would torment her with the question “Who is your boyfriend? And she would always answer: “Elmer Fudd!” She once took the oldest three brothers into Philadelphia on the train to see the movie “Scrooge” in 1970. This was one of our favorite childhood memories – first time we ever went into “the big city!”
    Please know that we are praying for your family. May God grant you His Peace and Comfort at this time.

  • Kay you were my first sister to join our Scully Clan, we will miss you. LOVE you. RIP

  • Love to you Uncle George, Vinny, Brian and Phil. Rest in peace, Aunt Kay.
