Kay Ogasawara (117)

I am saddened by the news of Kay Ogasawara’s passing. She was a jewel among Old North people and one of the last remaining original or near-original residents.

She and her late husband Frank were very interested in Old North history and actively helped me in writing Old North Davis. They drew up lists of names of “old timers” for me and loaned me snapshots for scanning. Two are seen here.  

Her interest in our neighborhood never dimmed and I was pleased to see her enthusiastic response to the materials on early residents in E-500s People, a cast of residents she had known for many decades.

For our Old North record, I reproduce her Enterprise obituary in this post.
