Kay de Weever – Loving Wife, Mother, Sister, Grandmother, and friend of many - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Catherine C. "Kay" de Weever, 89, long-time resident of Westfield, passed peacefully on Sunday, May 18, 2014, at Overlook Hospital in Summit, following a brief illness. Kay was born to the late Daniel and Hannah Collins on February 19, 1925, in Bayonne. She was the widow of Carl C. de Weever, Jr. who passed in 2002. Kay graduated from Holy Family Academy in 1942. She then worked at Universal Studios in downtown New York City where she had the thrill of meeting many movie superstars of the day. Kay worked in the library of Saint Peter's College in Jersey City, then at several local businesses in Westfield such as Rorden Realty and Burgdorff ERA where she truly enjoyed her role of Office Manager and made many life-long friends. Kay was also a communicant at The Catholic Church of the Holy Trinity in Westfield where she was very involved in parish life and ministry. In addition, she was a member of many local organizations including Westfield Community Players, Girl and Cub Scouts, and a volunteer at both Children's Specialized Hospital and The Hope Chest in town. Kay enjoyed her final years as an enthusiastic resident at Sunrise of Westfield alongside many close friends, both old and new. Kay had a contagious zest for life, an unwavering faith in God, and an uncanny love of finding a bargain and stretching a dollar. Her signature gift of joy, shown through her constant smiling and ease in conversation even with total strangers, will never be forgotten. Kay leaves behind two children, Patricia of Framingham, MA and Prince Edward Island, Canada, and Dan and his wife, Sue, of Cranford. She was also deeply loved by her two grandchildren, Andrew of Burlington, VT, and Kait of Cranford, as well as her sister, Mrs. Jean Flanagan of Bayonne, a sister-in-law, Mrs. Sheila Meehan of Long Beach Island, ten nieces and nephews, and countless cousins, god-children, and friends. A memorial service to celebrate Kay's life will be led by Msgr. Timothy J. Shugrue, Pastor and family friend, at Saint Michael Roman Catholic Church, 40 Alden Street, Cranford, on Saturday, June 7, at 10:30 a.m. Arrangements by Gray Memorial Funeral Home, Cranford.
