Kathleen A. "Kay" Gaboriault (Drown) passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on March 31, 2012 at age 79. Born in Hardwick, VT, she was the daughter of the late Arthur and Dorothy Drown. A long time resident of Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, Kay spent the last 10 years summering in Pennsylvania and wintering in North Port, Florida. Kay was married to Alcide "Al" Gaboriault for 54 years.
Kay raised three children and was the beloved mother to Gary Gaboriault, Karen Bruno and Randall Gaboriault. She was the cherished grandmother of Killian, Tristan, Declan and Logan Gaboriault, Kyle, Matthew and Nicholas Bruno, and Cole and Reece Gaboriault.
Her sister Virginia Brochu and brother, Harold Drown, survive her.
Kay earned her RN degree in nursing at Mary Fletcher Hospital School of Nursing in Burlington, Vermont. Her nursing career spanned more than 30 years, until her retirement in 1996.
Since retiring, Kay enjoyed relaxing with a good family novel and was an avid golfer; often playing daily with her many friends at the Venice East Golf Club, in Venice, Florida, where she was an active member.
Relatives and friends are invited to Kay's Life Celebration at Boyd-Horrox of Norristown, 200 W. Germantown Pk. (610-277-7000) on Friday, April 13th from 6 to 8 PM.
