Kay Ann (Curran) Gordon, daughter of Harold and Florence (Robison) Curran, was born November 6, 1938, on the family farm northeast of Lu Verne. Kay attended Corwith High School and graduated with the class of 1957.

Kay was united in marriage with Charles Gordon on May 13, 1960, at the Lutheran Church in Britt. The couple made their home in Britt. To this union one daughter, Lisa was born.

Kay was a member of the First Lutheran Church in Britt. She enjoyed walking around Britt, cleaning her home, she was a hard worker and always kept busy. In her free time Kay played 500, cribbage, and enjoyed dancing in her younger years in Duncan and at the Surf. She enjoyed going for rides with John, eating at the Titanium Lunchbox, and having coffee with the gals. She enjoyed watching Jeffrey wrestling and cheering very loudly for him!   All of the wrestlers got a kick out of Grandma Kay.

Kay loved spending time with her family. She enjoyed being with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, but also enjoyed the company of Lisa’s dog, Tasha. She loved and cared for her family, but was straight forwarded when she needed to be.

Kay is survived by daughter, Lisa (Jeff) Short; granddaughter, Abby (Steve) Madsen; grandson Jeffrey (Mallory) Short; great-grandchildren, Carson, RaeLynn, Sawyer, Harrison, and Vivienne; special friend of 32 years John Buren; six nieces, and one nephew.
