Kathryn T. Pablo, 89, of Venice, Fla., departed this life Thursday, March 27, 2014.
Kay was born in Pearson, Ga., Sept. 8, 1924. She moved with her family to Miami, Fla., during the Great Depression. It was there that she fell in love with her husband of 63 years, Herbert. Together they raised four children. In 1989, they moved to Venice to enjoy the Myakka River and the peaceful beaches.
Kay’s joyful, caring spirit touched all who knew her. She loved music, painting, dancing and bird watching. Her generous heart was always ready to help those in need.
Kay was preceded in death by her loving husband, Herbert, and her son Herb. Kay is survived by her sister, Faye; her daughter, Kathy; her sons, Mark and his partner, Caren, and Gary and his wife, Cindy; and her daughter-in-law Mary.
She was blessed to have 10 grandchildren, Brooke, Stephen, Amy, Adam, Justin, Benjamin, Danielle, Burt, Blake and Tyler.
Her six great-grandchildren, Peyton, Emma, Sidney, Justin, Kyler and Zachary, brought her great joy.
Kay was dearly loved and will be greatly missed. We are comforted knowing that she is in the presence of the Lord, with her beloved husband and her son.
