She knew no strangers and was referred to by most as "Mama Kaye." She loved her family and especially enjoyed her time with her grandkids. Her hobbies included camping, dancing, playing music, riding motorcycles and being in the sun.
Kaye's request for cremation was honored. A celebration of life is planned for Sunday, June 16, at 2 p.m. at Izaak Walton League in Beverly.
Details for the "Mama Kaye" Memorial Fund are not yet finalized. More information will be available in the near future.
