    I am so sorry to hear of Kaye’s passing. We met a few years ago at the Westchester Italian Cultural Center when we discovered we were the same age and went to the same elementary school, PS 71, in Pelham Bay in the Bronx. She was a delight to know. Full of life, very smart and funny. She loved the Italian culture and loved learning. We used to go to the cafe around the corner from WICC after and event and have lively conversatiion. It was a delight to know her. With fond memories, Liz Olsson

    Hearing the news of Kay’s passing has made me very sad. I remember Kay as an intelligent and vivacious woman, and a good human being. I regret that we didn’t say in touch over the many years since retirement from Dewey Ballantine. Even so, I think that in our hearts we each have valued the relationship we once had. May her soul rest in peace and may her memory serve as a blessing.

    My deepest condolences to the family for the loss of a beautiful person.  I am with you in thought and wish you comfort and peace.  I’ll remember Kay in many positive ways-with a big smile and a great sense of humor.  Always greeted me with a Good Morning.  We both worked in one point in time for the same boss  (Mary Bielaska) different years.  Kay, you will be greatly missed.

    My condolences to all Kay’s family and friends. She blessed us all with her beautiful smile, spontaneous laugh and great stories. She loved to travel and loved a challenge. I looked forward to lunch with her in the Dewey cafeteria. It always promised a good story, a good laugh and Kay’s strong opinion on almost anything. Lucky for me we agreed on almost everything. Kay you will live on in our hearts forever.
