PARRO, Kathleen (Kay) Rose (nee Parisi) Parro  -  1927 – 2022

Passed away at Thorntonview Long Term Care, in Whitby on Friday, November 4, 2022 in her 95th year.

Kay is survived by her children Sharon, Marg, Mickey, Darlene, Sam, Manny, Rebecca and Wayne.

She is predeceased by her son Harry. She was the proud Grandma of Jennifer, Jeanette, Julie, Tamara, Todd, Collin, Ian, Rebecca, Anthony, Nicole, Jaymee, Richard, Morgan, Ashlyn, Angela, Daniel, Johnny, and Thomas.

She was Great Grandma to 19 beautiful children and 7 Great Great Beauty Grandchildren.

The family would like to thank Vanessa, her nurse at Thorntonview for the loving care provided to mom, along with the many others who assisted in her care during her years there.

And to The Greek Tycoon Restaurant in Whitby where she often wandered and where she was always treated with immense kindness.

Cremation has taken place and we’d like to thank the kind staff at St Johns Norway in Toronto, for their loving care in Kay’s cremation.

A celebration of life will be held at The Newcastle Funeral Home on Thursday, November 24, 2022 from 2 to 5 pm.
Kay’s passions were elephants and oh so many dogs.

If desired a donation to PAWS, your local animal shelter or a local  CHARITY of your choice would be appreciated.
