Kay Stringham1928 ~ 2012Kay Stringham, age 83, passed away peacefully, at his home, on Wednesday evening, January 4, 2012. Kay was born August 26, 1928 in Bone, Idaho to Platte Lyman Stringham and Ruby Jones. As a young boy, he moved with his family to Rose, Idaho. He married his high school sweetheart, Margene Going on October 21, 1949 in the Idaho Falls Temple. Together they raised two sons and four daughters. In 1958, Kay moved his young family to San Bernardino, California. They subsequently lived in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, Chehalis, Washington and back to Southern California before retiring to Cedar Hills, Utah in 1997. Kay held many positions in the LDS church. His most treasured callings were serving at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building and working in the Mt. Timpanogos Temple. He was saddened when his health no longer permitted him to go to the temple. He grew the most beautiful garden and shared his abundance with so many. It was a privilege to be asked to work in the garden with him. We all learned the hard way that all rows had to be perfectly straight. Kay is survived by his wife Margene and his six children: Denise Nelson (Gary) Holladay, UT; Randy (Susan) Calimesa, CA; Nancy Yost, Houston, TX; Betty Jo Bailey (Dean) Alpine, UT; Janette Weaver (Josh) Logan, UT and Richard, Yucaipa, CA. He was preceded in death by his parents, six siblings and a granddaughter. The family wishes to thank his loving neighbors and the members of the Manila 5th Ward for their selfless service. A special thanks also for the kind service of his hospice care givers, especially Janet, MarKae, Lorna and Zack. A viewing will be held Sunday, January 8th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the Warenski Funeral Home, 1776 North 900 East, American Fork. Funeral Services will be held Monday, January 9th at 11:00 am at the Manila 5th Ward Chapel located at 3396 North 900 West, Pleasant Grove.
