    So many beloved memories of Mrs. Abbott. She assisted me in obtaining several guiding badges. My most favourite was her help with baking. It warms me when I remember her calm and patient guidance. Her sweet and kind demeanour was heartwarming and unforgettable. Mrs. Abbott, you have forever had an affect on me. Love you, Lynda

    Deepest condolences to Kay’s family in your loss . I didn’t know her well but we often chatted about anything and everything. Kay regularly dropped off her delicious baking at tax time and it was so much appreciated. So sad that this beautiful lady is now gone.

    Kay always had a kind word and a warm smile for me, each Sunday morning at Fraser church. She will be greatly missed by all of us, but we look forward to seeing her again, one day in heaven. We’re praying for comfort and peace for her family and friends.

    We are very sorry to learn of Kay’s passing. We got to know her and John so well from our Masonic Lodge and over the years after Bonnie’s mom passed, Kay would show up to the store with a tray of my favorite, date squares, for me, just because she knew mother made them for me. She actually gave me recipe when I retired and took up baking. her smile and her memories will not be forgotten.

    Rest in Peace Kay….. Whenever we would meet, at Fraser Church, the Masonic Lodge family nights, or just seeing you at the store, your smile was infectious. Your words were kind. We will miss you Kay but we know that you are now with John and your Heavenly Father. Our memories of you will live on. Deepest condolences to your remaining family.
