Tabor Garden Club and Interfaith Food Pantry.  She and her family enjoyed many camping vacations on Cape Cod through the years and  many afternoons at Deer Lake.  She felt fortunate to raise her family in Mt. Tabor and have such dear neighbors for decades.  She was an amazing Mom and adored Grandma to her eight grandchildren.  She was also the proud Great Grandma to two little ones.  Kay surely will be missed and has given us much to celebrate.
