Kaye Helen Katherine Strang

September 12, 1923 - August 30, 2012


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mom, grandmother and “GG”. On Thursday, August 30th, Kaye passed away peacefully with her loving family at her side.
Kaye is survived by her son Bill (Kelly) and daughter Laurie (Spencer) Mellor. Grand children Jeremy & Kristy Strang, Brandon Mellor and Kimmi (Chase) Thielen. Great grandchildren Charlee & Max Thielen and her four legged friends Babe, Tucker, Buddie, Jack & Pete.
Kaye was predeceased by her loving husband Hunter and grandson Aaron John Strang.
Kaye was born and raised in Calgary. She was an avid horseback rider, riding her horse in the Stampede parade and was a great fan and supporter of the rodeo. Kaye was a speed skater and a pioneer of skiing in the Rockies at Sunshine and Lake Louise. She never missed an opportunity to get to the hill and hike in for powder!
In the late 1940’s Kaye moved to Vancouver where she later married Hunter in 1950. In 1958, Kaye and Hunter moved to Cranbrook to raise their family. Kaye was involved in numerous community activities including the Lions Club and The CNIB. Through minor sports she was a great supporter of not only Bill & Laurie, but of all the kids in the Gyro Park neighbourhood.
Kaye enjoyed spending time with her family at her home, on the ski hill and especially at Kootenay Lake. She was particularly proud of her yard and gardens
No service at Kaye”s request. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to BC Children’s Hospital at Condolences may be left for the family at
