Kay was born on August 24, 1935 in St. Cloud to Edwin and Alma (Laubach) Winter. She married John Athmann on May 29, 1956 at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Spring Hill. She worked as an Administrative Assistant for Sears in St. Cloud from 1968 until her retirement in 1996. Kay was a devout member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church and All Saints Mission Group. She walked passionately in her faith and prayed the Rosary daily. Kay was also a member of the Eagles Auxiliary #622, Women of the Moose and VFW Auxiliary #4847. Kay enjoyed Crossword Puzzles, cross stitch, crocheting, knitting and trips to the casino. She also enjoyed fishing, but only when she could use her “secret bait” of canned corn. Kay was funny, and always enjoyed a good time. Above all else she was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. We will all miss her banana bread. Kay will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

Kay is survived by her loving husband of 61 years, John; children, Pam Siewert of St. Cloud, Becky of Lakeville, Brad (Shelly) of St. Cloud, Todd (Karen) of Becker, Dan (Jackie) of Lakeville; siblings, Tom Winter of St. Cloud, Michael (Kathy) Winter of Klameth Falls, OR, Joy (Mike) Reisinger of Avon, Jeff (Kim) Winter of Sauk Rapids, Missy (Nick) Ohmann of Sartell, Shawn (Sue) Winter of St. Joseph; ten grandchildren; and two great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents.
