UNGER; Kay (Funk)

January 3, 1927 ~ September 23, 2016

Kay was born in Aberdeen, Saskatchewan to Henry and Helen Penz. She had seven siblings, her schooling was mostly in Waldheim, Saskatchewan. After grade ten, Kay went to nursing school and worked in Saskatoon TB sanatorium. She married Edward Funk in August of 1946 and moved to Abbotsford BC to a ten-acre farm. They had three children, Garry; Shirley and Jim. They decided to raise their children in a Christian home and they did! In 1958 they moved to Clearbrook. Kay worked at Harders Grocery as a clerk and many years at five cents to a dollar store. Kay had health problems her whole life, she depended on God and prayers as she struggled through her trials. God was her strength. She enjoyed teaching Sunday School, sang in the choir, sang in a trio of ladies, sang with her son Garry and held various other positions in the Church of the Nazarene for over forty years. Ed and Kay drove many kids to Sunday School for years. Kay opened her home to family, friends, missionaries and visiting preachers with a cheerful heart, delicious meals and spare bed if needed. She was always willing and ready to talk about Jesus to anyone. She showed much love to all she met and that love came back to her. She sincerely cared about people. As a family there were many camping trips (tenting) to Cultus Lake, Okanagan and Waldheim, Saskatchewan. Ed passed away in June of 2008, Kay went to live at Tabor Court in April of 2009 where she made new friends, one special friend John Unger, whom she married on June 12th, 2010. At Tabor they played games, went on many short trips, held bible studies and loved staff and residents. Together, they had so much love for their blended families. John passed away in June of 2014. Although Kay loved her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren from both families very much, she loved her Lord and Saviour most and longed to be with Him. She is now resting in His loving arms after suddenly but peacefully passing into His presence at Tabor Court.
