Obituary for Kay Elaine Brownrigg

Kay Elaine (KK) Brownrigg, age 76, passed to the arms of our Lord on 14 November 2018.
Born by appointment on 9 March 1942 to James Joseph (Jim/JJ) and B Margaret (Peg) (Sorenson) Landers in Utica New York. Kay attended Kemble Street Elementary School, and graduated from Utica Free Academy (UFA). She went on to study Nursing at St Elizabeth’s School of Nursing, graduating as a Registered Nurse in 1964.

Kay was very proud of her Irish and Norwegian ancestry.
Kay was a talented musician, studying classical piano and winning accolades at many recitals. She also played the flute while in high school and was a member of the UFA marching band.

She married Charles Brownrigg in 1964 in Utica, was a career Navy wife, celebrating 54 wonderful years together on 18 June of this year. Kay and Charles have known each other over 70 years, and were occasional playmates as toddlers, to their teens. As teens, they went their separate ways, meeting again in 1960, and that was that.

Kay has been a St Marys County girl since 1966, living in beautiful downtown Bushwood, or BDTB as she liked to call it, in St Marys Seventh District. She worked at the old St Marys Nursing Home as a night shift charge nurse for over 15 years, retiring in 1981 with her husband retiring from the Navy that same year. She always maintained that if her husband could retire, so could she. Kay was a member of the Opti Mrs from 1973 to 1985 when illness caused her to curtail some of her activities.

Kay was a congregant of the All Saints’ Episcopal Church at Oakley, and was the church organist for over 30 years. She took extreme pride in her music and would practice endlessly at times to perfect a difficult piece. She was forced to retire her position when back surgery made it almost impossible for her to work the organs foot treadles. She has also served 3 terms on the church vestry.

Kay is survived by husband Charles of the home, son Lyle James (Nadja) Brownrigg of Cheltenham MD, daughters Cheryl Ann (Ralph) Sanchez of Harrisburg PA and Alison Kay Young of Cleveland, OH, and a very special grandson, Christopher Michael Brownrigg, of the home. Also surviving are a sister, Patricia Ann Bach of Atlanta GA, Brother-in-law Thomas Lyle (Bonny) Brownrigg of Ilion NY, and sister-in-law Deborah Lynn Brownrigg of Chester CA.

She is also survived by 6 grandchildren, 7 great grandchildren, 6 cousins, and many nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her parents Jim and Peg Landers, brother Jim and wife Barbara Landers, brother-in-law William Brownrigg, and sister-in-law Cathy Wheeler.
