KATHLEEN “KATE” (CLANCY) GUAY
On Wednesday, June 3rd Kate passed away at the age of 71 at home surrounded by her family, after a brief battle with cancer. She was predeceased by her parents Anne “Nancy” (McCaffrey) and John Clancy of Whitehall. She leaves behind her loving husband of 46 years, Jim, and their children Erin (Doug Kamper), Matt (Emily), Mary, and John (Shannon). Loving “Nana” to Audrey, Jackson and two young boys who have been a gift of joy to our family since they came into our lives. Loving sister of Mary Anne Clancy (David Whalen) and Eileen Clancy. Sister-in-law of Rev. Robert F. Guay. She also leaves behind many cousins and friends. Kate was the Assistant Administrator of Marian Hall Home until her retirement. She made friends easily, always willing to share a laugh and a story. She had a quick wit and a biting tongue, part of being Irish. She loved her family and the family vacations over the years, especially ones to the shore. She loved to dance Irish sets and ceilis and never complained when her husband dragged her around the country on various dance outings. They both enjoyed the friendships they made as members of the Pittsburgh Ceili Club. Family and friends will be received Monday, June 8th from 4-8 pm Devlin Funeral Home, 806 Perry Hwy, Pittsburgh, PA 15229. Certain COVID-19 restrictions have been eased but family requests masks must be worn inside at all times. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Tuesday, June 9 th at 10:00am at St. Teresa of Avila Church. Masks and social distancing will be required. Interment will be private. At a future date, a proper “Irish Wake” will be held to celebrate Kate’s life. In lieu of flowers, family requests donations be made in Kate’s name to Mt. Assisi Place, Mother Teresa Hospice, or a charity of your choice.
