Katy O’Grady: Sept. 7, 1948- Dec. 14, 2018



It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce our sister, aunt and cousin, Katy O’Grady, passed away Dec. 14, 2018.

Even though she was born in Chicago on Sept. 7, 1948, her heart was always in her beloved hometown of Coupeville.

She graduated from Coupeville High School with the class of 1967 and attended Western Washington State College. She enjoyed working at the Greenbank Berry Farm and later at Whidbey Island Bank. Katy had a great love for people and was a greater giver of gifts and surprises for many people she befriended and especially her family.

Katy leaves behind brother John (Debbie); brother Pat (Frenda); nephews Jeremy (Gyna) and Matt (Kara); nieces Kelley (Adam) and Shannon (David); as well as her two favorite cousins, Joe (Marilyn) and David (Nancy); and, most of all, Katy’s great nephews and nieces, whom she adored: Breccan, Quinn, Abbey, Parker and Olivia.

At Katy’s request, there will be no services. However, in lieu of flowers, the brothers suggest any donations be made in memory of Katy to “Friends of Ebey’s Landing,” P.O. Box 958, Coupeville, WA 98239.

May you enjoy your peaceful eternity, Kate-O.
