With heavy hearts, we have said goodbye to our precious, beautiful mom, who passed away Wednesday, January 10, 2024, at the age of 88, with family at her side.
Kay was born in Vinton, Iowa to Kenneth Clark & Nora Fern Colston, and raised on the family farm in Walker, Iowa. In her lifetime, Kay lived in Iowa, Illinois, and Subic Bay, Philippines, finally settling in San Diego County. The final years of her life were spent in Poway, which she always considered her home. Kay was widowed twice, Ross P Anderson (1972), and Jim D. Lee (2023).
Kay’s greatest love was for her family and friends, attending all gatherings large and small. She was very close to her local family and loved her trips to see family in Iowa.
Kay was a dedicated, hard worker and worked over 20 years as an electronics assembler for Hewlett-Packard in Rancho Bernardo. She retired in 2001 but remained active with the Retirees group.
Kay had a tremendous love of all sports, but her all-time favorites were stock car racing and Charger football. Her love of racing began at Cajon Speedway and graduated into NASCAR, with her heroes being The King, Richard Petty, and Herschel McGriff. She was a SD Chargers season ticket holder for over 15 years and rarely missed a game. Her devotion continued even after the team moved to LA.
Kay is survived by her brother Kenneth Colston and sister Mary Jean Miner, children Joyce Albright (Doug), Debra Gutzmer (Alan), Kerry Schultz, Ross Anderson Jr (Kenda). Kay was blessed with 8 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews who also survive her.
Kay lived her life with a happy heart and a smile on her face. Kay will be dearly missed by family and friends alike. A service is being planned for this summer at Poway Lake.
