ARMSTRONG, KAY  
KAY ARMSTRONG Katherine Belle Armstrong, 95, passed away peacefully Jan. 26, 2016, in Boulder City, after a brief illness. She was gently called home to Heaven just after sunrise with her family at her side. Kay moved to Boulder City almost two years ago from southern Orange County, Calif., where she had lived most of her adult life, mostly in Laguna Niguel, Laguna Hills, and Newport Beach. In Nevada, she first resided at The Homestead, then at Boulder City Hospital's Long Term Care Unit (sometimes referring to it as "The Beach!"). She and her twin brother were born Aug. 13, 1920, at home in Mt. Juliet, Tenn., to W.C. and Kate George. The youngest of five children, she grew up a "country girl" on a large family farm just outside of Nashville. She met Edwin Armstrong in early 1941 at an aircraft company in Nashville where they worked. They married in early 1942 and moved back to his family's hometown in California so she could live with them in Laguna Beach while he served in the U.S. Navy during the war. She retired reluctantly in her 70s, after nearly 30 years of service with the County of Orange in Santa Ana, Calif., having loved her position as the executive secretary to the public administer/public guardian. She is survived by her daughters, Katherine "Connie" Shives of Sammamish, Wash., and Susan (Doug) Thomas of Boulder City; son, David Armstrong (Roy Blakey) of Aliso Viejo, Calif.; as well as four grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her former husband; three brothers; one sister; and was the last of her generation in her family. The consummate and optimistic survivor who steadfastly believed to the end that she'd live to be 100, she persevered valiantly the last year through several medical setbacks. After each recovery she would say, "Nothing's ever wrong with me!" Her world narrowed on the outside, but she always enjoyed friends and conversations and found renewed joy in nature, trees, birds, flowers, laughter, music and children. She was a courageous, adventurous, lively, classy and joyful mother, aunt, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. Gracious, thoughtful and loyal, her heart was open wide to all, and an unkind word never left her lips. She leaves a legacy of faith, perseverance, love and kindness. Memorial service and celebration of life will be at 3 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 11, at the Boulder City Hospital Long Term Care Unit. There will be a service in southern California will be at 11 a.m. Friday, Feb. 19, at South Shores Church, 32712 Crown Valley Parkway, Dana Point, Calif., with reception following at the church.
