Katherine (Kay) Rose Brobst, 82, of Lake Wales, Fla., formerly of Springville, passed away Sunday, Oct. 31, 2010, at Good Shepherd Hospice in Auburndale, Fla., after a lengthy illness.
Kay was born Nov. 28, 1927, in Berwick, daughter of the late Harry and Catherine Chomen.
She was wife of the late David C. Brobst, who predeceased her in March 2001. They were married for 56 years.
Also those gone to be with our Lord prior to her were daughter, Karen (Brobst) Ferris in June 2008; brother, Harry; and sisters, Mary, Sophie and Terry.
They moved to Lake Wales in 1990 after Kay retired from Bendix Corp in South Montrose after 37 years of service. She bowled on the Bendix Bowling League. She also sold Avon for many years and was an avid deer hunter for years. The three items she most enjoyed was her flower gardens, cooking and baking.
Kay was a very devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She was a very friendly and generous person. She was always willing to help anyone in need.
Her greatest joy were her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and the time she spent with them.
She is survived by her son and his wife; three daughters, one with whom she resided and were her caregivers, and a dear friend who was Karen's friend and caretaker of Montrose; three granddaughters and their husbands, a grandson and wife, and three great-grandchildren. Also surviving are two brothers and many nieces, nephews and good friends.
Once moving to Florida, they became active in the Lake Wales Homemakers Club and Keenagers groups. Those of us that knew Kay and her generosity, she devoted many hours to the Lake Wales Care Center. This is a group of numerous ministries that help local people in many capacities. She liked volunteering in their Surplus Store, where she helped those less fortunate find affordable clothing and household items.
Private memorial service to be held at the convenience of the family at Orcutt's Cemetery in Noxen.
