Kay Grager passed away peacefully on December 20, 2015, with her family by her side following a year-long battle with cancer. She loved, and was dearly loved by, her family and friends.
Kay was born the fourth of five children in Leal, ND, and married William Grager in Valley City, ND. In 1957, Kay and the family relocated to Washington, where they became well-known and respected members of the community, helping to found Lake Washington United Methodist Church in Kirkland and singing in the choir. Later, she would be a member of Auburn First United Methodist Church for over two decades, where she continued to sing and serve community supper with joy.
Kay will be remembered for her quiet grace, Midwestern hospitality, homemade crafts and world-class baked goods. She is survived by four children, nine grandchildren and two great-children.
