    Oh Tommy, Nancy and Kathy,
    So very sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing.
    Kay was a sweet lady…
    I will always remember dropping in for visits with my Dad. She made us feel so special — offering us a cup of tea, laughing at Dad’s old jokes and telling tales of the good ol’ days. And, of course, she bragged about all of you!
    I loved your Mom … and I know you will miss her dearly.

    We are all saddened to hear that Aunt Kay has left us. It is a huge loss for everyone, but especially for her kids and extended family. We will always remember what a gracious and patient host she always was when all of the Texas Tedescos would arrive in mass for family visits. We always came away feeling loved, and with bellies fully stuffed on pasta!

    Only the best of memories of Aunt Kay.
    When I was young I learned about ‘real butter’ while visiting at Aunt Kay’s home and having buttered toast. Who knew that I had been using margarine, not butter all these years. 😉
    She gave me one of Kathy’s baby dolls to keep me company on the long drive home to Texas. I had that doll for years.
    Aunt Kay made me smile and was always so kind. I was extremely shy, but always felt safe around and Kay.❤
    She touched my child’s heart deeply.
    My condolences to Tommy, Nancy, Kathy and the extended family members.
    I hope some of the grandkids and great-grandkids inherited her beautiful smile and kind heart.

  13. Sending love, thoughts, and prayers to you and your family during this tough time. With deepest sympathy, Linda and Dennis Lucken

  17. My sister-in-law, Kay, always went out of her way to make my visits from San Antonio to Woburn pleasant and kept me up on the family news throughout the years. She was always cheerful and opened up her home to our family of six, during numerous summer visits and reunions. It took a special person to do that. She took great care of our father-in-law, Nicolas Tedesco. She was definitely part of our family.
    These special traits are still seen through her children, Tommy, Nancy and Kathy.

    Love, Aunt Mary Lou Tedesco
