Mesa County
Colorado, USA
Death: Apr. 25, 2014

Mary Catherine "Kay" Beede passed away on Friday, April 25, 2014.

She was born on July 22, 1928, to Patrick A. and Hazel A. (Crane) Daily on their homestead, West of Mack, Colorado. She attended Mack Elementary School, and moved with her family to Grand Junction where she attended St. Joseph's school and graduated from Grand Junction High School in 1946.

While attending Mesa College, she met and married Wayne Beede in 1947.

They moved to Boulder, Colorado, where Wayne attended the University of Colorado, and Kay worked at the University Records Office. Upon Wayne's graduation, they returned to the Grand Valley where Wayne operated the family farm, and they built their home and raised their two boys and two girls.

They moved to Grand Junction in 1975, where Kay was employed by School District 51 as Secretary at Appleton Elementary School until she retired 16 years later.

Kay enjoyed traveling, jeeping in the San Juans, boating at Lake Powell, and spending many winters in Arizona. She enjoyed photography, sewing, reading, oil painting, and crosswords. Kay was quite proud of her family; they were the light of her life.

She is preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Edmond Daily and J. Leon Daily.

She is survived by her husband of over 60 years, Wayne Beede; sons, Ross A. (Libby) Beede, and Dale T. (Susan) Beede; daughters, Joan (Ray) Milholland, and Carol (Olan) Clark; eight grandchildren, Shelby (Rudy) Beede, Charlie (Somer) Beede, Brian (Lauren) Beede, Sarah (Sean) Eubanks, Sean (Brittany) Milholland, Lindsey (Tyler) Milholland, Cari (Caleb) Clark, and Bryce (Stati) Clark; and six great-grandchildren, with two more on the way.

Services will take place on Friday, May 2, at 11:00 a.m. at Canyon View Vineyard Chapel, 736 24 Rd. in Grand Junction.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Kay's honor to School District #51 Foundation, 2115 Grand Ave., Grand Junction, CO 81501.
