Mary Kathryn (Kay) Ballou passed away on January 5, 2012 in Mount Vernon, Washington.

She is survived by her daughter, Deanna Ballou (Jim) Jensen, of Beaverton, OR; her son, David Lee (Arden) Ballou, of Surprise, AZ; her granddaughter, Jenny (Gerald) Duce, in CA; great-grandchildren: Jade Duce and Carson Duce; and nieces and nephews: Jerry Dixson, Patricia Cobb, Tom Dixson, Chuck Dixson, Bob Dixson, Gail Hughes, and Merlin and Claudia Hughes.

Kay was born in Milton-Freewater, Oregon on September 18, 1921, the youngest of the five children born to Charles and Mary Dixson.

She worked as a hairdresser until she married Dean on October 23, 1945, following his return from his service in the Air Force during World War II. They lived in Walla Walla, Washington after their marriage, moved to La Grande, Oregon, and then moved to Portland, Oregon where they lived from 1952 until about 1974.

In the mid-1970's, they built a home on Lopez Island where they lived together until Dean's death on November 10, 1995. After Dean's death, Kay remained in their home on Lopez until 2007, then moved into a cottage at the Creekside Retirement Community in Burlington, Washington.

Kay was a loving mother and grandmother and had many close friends. She will be deeply missed by all.

A gathering of friends and family will be held from 10:00 a.m. -12:00 p.m., Monday, January 14, 2013 at Evans Funeral Chapel in Anacortes, Washington.

Arrangements are in the care of Evans Funeral Chapel and Crematory, Inc., Anacortes, WA and the San Juan Islands.
