Kathryn Zinn, 1923 ~ 2010

Kathryn (Kay) Inez Zinn, 86, beloved wife, mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully on July 20, 2010, at Alta Ridge Assisted Living in Salt Lake City, Utah of natural causes.

Kay was born on Sept. 29, 1923 to Frank and Alta Hutchinson of Clio, Iowa. She was the youngest of 13 children and the only surviving sibling at the time of her death.

In 1945, Kay met and married the love of her life, Jimmie Zinn, who was serving in the U.S. Army Air Force. Jimmie and Kay lived in several different communities throughout their married life, but considered Albuquerque, N.M., home. In 2003, they moved to Moab to be closer to their daughter Marie Andrews.

Kay will be long remembered for her amazing strength and ability to make people smile. She received numerous awards for the thousands of volunteer hours she devoted to helping both young and old.

Kay is survived by her daughter, Marie Andrews, and two grandchildren, Jamie Andrews and Patrick Andrews. Her husband, Jimmie, son, Michael and son-in-law, John Andrews, precede her in death.

A graveside memorial service will be held on Friday, July 23.

It was Kay’s wish that in lieu of flowers donations be sent to the Community Church (College Education fund), 544 MiVida, Moab, Utah 84532, or to a charity of choice.
