It’s with profound sadness and broken hearts we share the passing of Kay Lynn Burrington on January 2nd, 2024; She was a much loved daughter, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and sister.
Kay was born on June 20,1960 in Fargo, North Dakota; Her family moved to California in 1965 and she grew up in Bellflower, Ca. They then moved from California to Great Falls. Montana in 1977, she went on to graduate high school at CMR. Kay met her husband Grant Burrington while cruising Central Ave with her sister as soon as she moved to Montana. Her beauty and the Cutlass Supreme with California plates sure caught his eye. Kay and Grant were married August 1,1981 and they had one daughter Melissa Sue, they divorced a few years later.
She started dating Carl Kriedeman in 1985 whom she later married and they had their son Logan; they divorced in 1995.
Kay enjoyed working with people and had a variety of occupations, such as bartender, server, cook and personal support worker. She worked at the Great Falls Airport Restaurant, KFC, Rainbow Hotel, West Side Vets Club, QLC and along side her mom who owned Lippis Kitchen.
Some of Kay’s hobbies included crafting, painting and drawing, jewelry making, and gardening. She was an excellent cook, she loved her family, her dogs and taking care of people.
Kay had a beautiful, recognizable and infectious laugh. She had a great smile, a big heart and a wonderful sense of humor; She always stood up for the underdog. Kay could be a rebel by sneaking out to meet her boyfriend in California, smoking in the girl's bathroom in high school and the hospital bathroom setting off alarms, she lived by her own rules and was a fierce protector of those she loved. Kay would do anything for anyone and would take in and help those in need.
Kay is survived by her parents Cathy and Dennis Kuether; daughter Melissa Ruiz and son Logan Kriedeman. Kay is also survived by her sister Debbie Renaud (Gordon); brothers Mike Larson (Dolores) and Scott Kuether; grandchildren Andreas(Johnnie), Markos(Alexis), Devante and Angelo, Jameson, Taya, Amyah and Iyla; great granddaughter Lennie Mae; nephews Steven(Mel), Darryl and Dallas(Shauna) Renaud, Michael (Shelbie) and Mitch (Brittany) Larson; great nephews Christopher and Oliver, Parker and Ashton.; great nieces Odessa and Lainey; she is also survived by her dogs Princess and Boo, who miss her terribly.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Pat and Rose Contway; beloved Aunt Patrica Burckhard; uncles Tommy, Jay, and Doug Contway; waiting for Kay with tails wagging will be Prissy and Prince
Words can’t express how much we will miss her beautiful soul.
