Great loss for Community: Kay Covert passes away


Nov. 1,  1947 to Aug. 16, 2015
Longtime Manzanita businessperson and realtor Kay Covert passed away on Sunday August 16th at the age of 67. Covert was a strong outspoken supporter of Manzanita, a true cheerleader for the community.  She will be greatly missed by many.
She is survived by her husband Walt and son Max.  The family will have a private service, and a community celebration will be planned at a later date.  Community members are asked to share their special memories of Kay with the North Coast Citizen.  Please send to Laura Swanson at [email protected].  See page 5 for “Memories of Kay” by Sherry Hasslacher.  She may be gone, but she will not be forgotten.
Walt suggested donations in Kay’s name be made to the ASPCA – American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® — One of Kay’s many projects was making sure the stray cats at the real estate office always had a full bowl of food. Donations can be made online at in Kay’s name.
