Hart and sister Frances A. Waring. Survived by several nieces ad nephews and loyal and faithful friends Dori Lidster and Jean Tucker. Kae was a life long resident of Byron.

Her paintings hang in several public buildings in London and in many private homes across the nation. Frequently it has been said of her that she is just as unique and clever in her way as Helen Keller was in hers.

God knew Auntie Kae needed a very special family to care for her.She was remarkable.I wish my penmanship; culinary skills & artistic abilities were even remotely like hers. When she invited you to serve at one of her wonderful teas, you knew you had arrived! A few moments in her presence and you forgot she had physical challenges. She lived a full life.I will treasure the memories I have of her, as will you. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you, at this time.

Love,

Mary -Bangladesh
