Mary Kaye, Long-time Lake Geneva resident, passed away peacefully on July 18 at the age of 91.

Born Mary Louise Sullivan in Larimore, North Dakota, she came to Wisconsin in the summer of 1946 to waitress at Georgia’s Cafe. There she met George Edwin Kaye who had recently returned to his hometown from the European Theater of World War Two. They wed in Larimore on New Year’s Eve of that year. The couple settled in Lake Geneva and were married for 52 years before George passed away in 1999.
Mary and George had two children Kathleen (Robert) Giles and Daniel (Nancy) Kaye. They had one grandchild Charles Sullivan Kaye.

Mary worked for Wisconsin Bell and Central-Denison School, both in Lake Geneva. After retirement, she was active in Hilltoppers and Communion for the Homebound at Saint Francis de Sales Parish, as well as an avid volunteer for Eastview Elementary, the Food Pantry, and local blood drives. She also enjoyed outings and playing cards with the Merry Widows. Mary loved to travel and relished the many excursions she took with her family, and the Senior Travel Club of Walworth County. Her favorite trips were to the Pacific Northwest to visit her daughter and son-in-law and her bucket-list adventure to Ireland with her son’s family. In addition to her children and grandchild, she is survived by nephews, nieces, great-nephews, and great-nieces. Mary’s brothers Harold and Daniel, sister Beatrice, and niece Jeannette preceded her in death.
