April 14 2018: GONZALEZ, Kunnika (Kay)

Kunnika (Kay) Gonzalez

In memory of Mrs. Kunnika (Kay) Gonzalez, adored wife and mother. An unbelievable strong and generous woman. She was a true caretaker, loving both people and animals, and especially her beloved Kimba, Annie and her latest Tiger. She persevered under sometimes under tough conditions, when with one daughter, she packed up and moved to wherever her beloved husband, Celso, was stationed during his many tours of duty in the military. She worked as a civilian registered nurse (RN) for the Dept. of the Army for over 40 years ending with her 30 years at Walter Reed Intensive Cardiac Care Unit (ICU). When she retired, she couldn’t stay still. She worked in her garden, and cared for her husband as his health deteriorated. He passed away peacefully in 2014. She was a dear friend and confident. Her friends were lifelong. She was there for anyone who needed her. She was a great woman who would be greatly missed.
