Kay M. Kastran

July 17, 1922 ‒ December 16, 2002

Mansfield, Ohio

MANSFIELD: Kay M. Kastran, 80, of Mansfield, died Monday morning December 16, 2002 in MedCentral Mansfield Hospital.

Kay went home to be with the Lord following a short illness.

She was born July 17, 1922 in Dayton to James and Mary (Kaloudis) Mitchell and was raised in Chicago, “her beloved home”.

She, and her husband George G. Kastran, moved to Mansfield in 1952 with his job transfer with National Seating Company.

Kay was a devoted and loving mother, mother-in-law, grandmother and great grandmother. “YaYa” as she was lovingly called by her grandchildren, enjoyed watching old movies and The Cooking Channel. She excelled in the home crafts of cooking and sewing, and affectionately doted on her black pet poodles, but her greatest joy was spending time with her family.

She was a member of Sts. Helen and Constantine Greek Orthodox Church, but more recently attended Berean Baptist Church.

She will be sadly missed by her surviving family, including her sons and daughters-in-law Jim and Nora Kastran of Mansfield and Dean and Marilee Kastran of Lexington; grandchildren Jerri and Rick Townsend of Dalton, GA, Kelli and Scott Basilone, Jim Jr. and Rachel Kastran, Dean Jr. and Jennifer Kastran, Hillary Kastran, Emilee Kastran and her fiancée Christopher Wilson, and Jonathan Kastran all of the Mansfield area; great grandchildren Jeffrey, Drew and Tanner Townsend, Tyler and Brody Basilone, Jack Kastran and Jacob Kastran; a sister-in-law Annette Janis of Park Ridge, IL; an aunt Mary Kaloudis of Dayton; nieces and nephews including Sharon and Bob Tannura of Lockport, IL; and cousins.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband on December 6, 1995; and by a little sister Anastasia.

Friends may call Wednesday December 18, 2002 from 5-8 pm in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home, where the funeral service will be held Thursday at 11 am. The Rev. David J. Pound will officiate. Burial will follow in Mansfield Memorial Park.

Memorial contributions to either the American Diabetes Association or Berean Baptist Church may be made at the funeral home.
