Kathryn Anne Mohr

July 31, 1922 - October 15, 2012


Kathryn Ann Mohr, age 90, died on October 15, 2012 at Joseph Creek Care Village in Cranbrook. Kay was born in Vancouver, the youngest of Frank and Hilda Farley”s three children. She met Frank, the love of her life and husband of 67 years while attending the University of British Columbia. She lived a full and happy life; enjoying each day and cherishing each moment with her family.
Kay and Frank both had a passion for life and a vital spirit that resulted in lifelong friendships in each of the more than ten cities where they lived before moving to Cranbrook. Kay had an infectious laugh which could be heard whenever she got together with family or friends. Whether it was a family gathering, party, dance, or her 89th birthday, she would always be one of the last to leave. She was a keen competitor and it was not unusual to hear her cries of “our team is red hot!!” at family bocce tournaments. She enjoyed skiing, golf, square dancing, clog dancing, round dancing and just plain dancing. As a mother of five, she became by necessity an exceptional cook and as her daughter-in-law said, “she could make a gourmet meal from a carrot, a left over chicken wing, and a potato”. She was also an accomplished seamstress and as old photos verify, it was not uncommon to see examples of her work on every member of the family. She also sewed the brides and brides maids dresses for her daughters weddings as well as arranging the flowers and cooking for the reception.
Above all, she was a loving wife and mother dedicated to the happiness and well being of her family and she will be missed by all those that loved her for her adventurous spirit and her love of family.
She is survived by her children and their spouses Virginia and Howard West of Skookumchuck, Kathryn and Al Shannon of Cranbrook, and Beth and Keith Baechler of Edmonton, Glenn and Sue Mohr of Creston, and Ron and Jude Mohr of Vernon, 10 grandchildren, 11 great-grand-children, and her brother Ken Farley. She is predeceased by her husband Frank, parents Frank and Hilda Farley, sister Helen Burt, and her grandson D”Arcy McRae.
Kay”s family would especially like to thank the Care Aides and all the staff at Joseph Creek Care Village as well as a special thank you to her caring friend Karen Christie. Their actions and kindness went far beyond their roles as care givers and helped make Kay and Frank”s final years there enjoyable, interesting, and fun.
In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be made to the Alzheimer”s Society.
