Madeline M. Kay, 70, died peacefully in her sleep in early September. She grew up in Oak Park and was the third oldest of eight children. She attended St. Edmund School and Trinity High School then earned her associate degree at Triton College and worked as a manager of Oncology Medical Records at Lutheran General Hospital for many years. 

She was passionate about animals and always carried treats to share with her four-legged friends. She had a great sense of humor and often entertained at family parties.

Madeline is the daughter of Catherine Kay and the late Theodore (Ted) Kay. She is survived by her siblings, Ted (Ida) Kay, Anne (Joe) Coglianese, Frank (Susie) Kay, Louise (Kevin) Kelly, Catherine (Dave) Nelson, Carolyn (Jim) Kay and Jim (Inga) Kay. She was the aunt of 22 nieces and nephews, who fondly remember her infectious laugh and interest in their lives. 

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Animal Care League of Oak Park would be appreciated. Interment was private.
