Kay Mccartney Obituary, Death – Yesterday, Kay Mccartney lost her valiant fight against cancer after a protracted and difficult ordeal. I am really sorry to have to break this news to you, but it is what it is. During this challenging time, we are keeping Kay’s family and friends in our thoughts and prayers here at the office. Kay Ingraham was the daughter of Amos and Ethel (McCrea) Ingraham, both of whom have since passed away. She was born in the New Brunswick town of Southampton.
Her brother Ronald Ingraham, her sister Marion Ingraham, and her sister Amy Dore (Arnold) all passed away prior to her passing in 2004. Her husband, David McCartney, also passed away in 2004. They all passed away before she did. She was the one who came first. Kay was devoted to her husband, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren throughout her entire life.
She was a member of Central United Church, the Moncton Art Society, the Riverview Arts Council, Artists 9; she was a former member of the Moncton Golf and Curling Club and the Beaver Curling Club; she was a former President of the Moncton Kinette Club; and she was a charter member of the St. John’s 50/50 Couples Club, which is now known as the Friendship Club. She was also a member of the Friendship Club.
Art was Kay’s first love, despite the fact that she had a lot of other interests and passions. She had a lot of fun participating in painting groups with her friends, many of whom shared her enthusiasm for the hobby. She valued the time she got to spend with them very highly. She treasured the time she spent painting from her “mind’s eye” in her studio, which she found to be just as rewarding as her participation in solo and group exhibitions of her work.
