On Saturday, Dec. 16, 2017, Kathleen “Kay” Mary Gleason was welcomed into heaven by her precious Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Kay was a native of New Zealand and came to the United States in 1970 when she married Jack Gleason.
Since 1973, her entire life was dedicated to serving the Lord and loving her family and friends. Her heart’s desire was for everyone she met to see and feel the love of God through her words and actions, and everyone who knew her would agree that they did. After three and a half years of struggle with illness, Kay stepped into eternity and is now forever healed and happy.

She leaves behind her loving husband of 47 years, Jack L. Gleason; her son, Mark Gleason; and daughter, Mandy Myrick; along with three grandchildren, Eli and Isaac Gleason and Macie Myrick; three sisters, Anne Fitzgerald, Helen McMenamin and Trisha Fitzgerald; and her brother, Ged Fitzgerald.

We will miss her but have not said a final farewell to Kay because we await our reunion with her in the kingdom of our great God!
A celebration of Kay’s life will be held at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 28, 2017, at
Sierra Bible Church, 15171 Tuolumne Road, Sonora.
