Katherine M. “Kay” McGurn, 93, of Wintersville, Ohio, formerly of Hopewell Junction, NY and Poultney, VT, passed away Friday, March 2, 2018 at Carriage Inn of Steubenville. She was born November 28, 1924 in Poultney a daughter of the late Mikolas & Pauline Murco Maslack. Kay was a member of St. Columba Catholic Church in Hopewell Junction and the Altar Rosary Society. She was a fierce advocate for those she loved, urging them to put their God given talents to use and teaching them to think of others. She worked hard raising a family and loved to bake but she also worked outside the home in department stores and real estate. Strong in faith from an early age, she maintained an optimistic view of people and life situations. She shared her faith with anyone around her and made it her mission to engage others in a conversation about it. She and her husband loved their extended family too and took active roles raising two of their grandchildren to ensure a good foundation for them as well. Preceding Kay in death were her husband Joseph Patrick McGurn, Jr. and daughter Kathy McGurn.
Kay is survived by her sons Joe (Ana) McGurn of Wintersville and Kevin (April) McGurn of Chicago, IL; nine grandchildren; eight great grandchildren; siblings Frank, Mike & Phil Maslack and Paula (Bob) McNutt; and sister-in-law Priscilla Maslack.
