January 7, 1928 - April 30, 2020
DiChiara, Kathleen “Kay” (Davies) of Revere on April 30, 2020 at the age of 92. Born in Liverpool, England to the late Daniel and Elizabeth (Hanratty) Davies. Beloved wife of the late Alfonse “Al” DiChiara. Devoted mother of Sandra DeChristoforo and her late partner Steve of Revere, and the late Nicholas DiChiara of Westminster, CO. Dear sister of the late Anne Matthews and Bette Machon of England. Cherished grandmother of Gina Bassant and her late husband Jay of Revere, Brenda Spinelli and her husband Jim of Port St. Lucie, FL, and Johnna Wallace and her husband Bruce of Port St. Lucie, FL. Adored great grandmother of Cassandra, Nikolas, Caden and August. Also survived by many loving nieces and nephews. We lost a remarkable woman. A woman full of life, courage and determination. Throughout her exceptional life she endured many challenges but also enjoyed many incredible experiences. Growing up in England during WWII led her to meet a U.S. soldier and fall in love, and that love led her to move to the United States to marry and start a new life and a family. Kay was a devoted wife, and an amazing mother, grandmother and great-grandmother (Nana). A woman of style, elegance and grace. She was the family’s matriarch, historian and storyteller. She loved to travel the world and read everything she could. Her talents were endless; there wasn’t anything she couldn’t cook, sew, create, or learn. Always there to lend a hand and always had a smile. And was the best bargain shopper, especially at her beloved Filene’s. There is so much that can be said about Kay and the way she lived life. She will be tremendously missed and remembered by all those that love her. In accordance with the CDC’s current restrictions on gatherings due to Covid-19, all services will be held privately.
