Kathleen (Schiel) Anunti
Kay was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and friend who was loved by all. She will always be cherished as our “Mama Kay.”
Kay was born June 9, 1929, in Chicago, Illinois to Augusta (Koering) and Frank Schiel. When Kay was 12 years old the family moved to Duluth. She graduated from Denfeld High School in 1947. Kay married John Anunti, her husband of 51 years, February,1948. Together they had three children; Kathy, Linda, and John.
In1968, John and Kay moved to Littleton, Colorado for the warmer and dryer air. Kay loved the mountains and the warm sunshine. Kay was completely devoted to caring for her family. Her children and grandchildren were her heart and joy!
Kay was a good friend to all! The coffee was always on and within seconds food would be on the table. Kay loved having friends and family around her kitchen table.
On December 30, 2020 Kay passed peacefully at the age of 91. Her son John and grandson Dan were at her side. Of course she had to get to heaven to celebrate her husband’s upcoming birthday on New Year’s Day and to be with grandson Michael Arkulary.
