Kay Pauls (Katherine Marie Siemens) of Winnipeg, Manitoba passed away peacefully at the age of 89 on November 24, 2020 with her children by her side. She was born on a farm near Boissevain, Manitoba on October 30, 1931 to Henry and Catherine Siemens. Kay’s early years were spent in Boissevain and Ninga. She completed her education in Winkler in 1951. Kay moved to Winnipeg a few years later where she worked as a bookkeeper at a construction company and later as a secretary at MBCI. Kay married Hugo Pauls on April 3, 1971. They welcomed two children, John in 1973 and Kathy in 1978. Kay enjoyed volunteering at Harrow School, the Pregnancy Distress Thrift Store, and at Portage Avenue Church. She was instrumental to the Funeral Committee at church for many years and served food at over 100 funerals.

Kay’s faith and family were especially important to her. She was a prayer warrior who always had a positive attitude. Kay could often be found at the kitchen table praying for her family and friends. One thing Kay will be remembered for is calling her extended family members on their birthdays. The door was always open at Kay and Hugo’s home and they welcomed everyone.

Kay loved baking, especially cookies for her grandchildren. Her hobbies included sewing, knitting, reading, and doing word searches. Kay and Hugo enjoyed going out to eat with friends and family as well as ‘going Manitoba-ing’. They spent many evenings watching sports and curling was one of Kay’s favourites.

Kay was predeceased by her beloved husband, Hugo, in 2016. Left to cherish her memory is her son John (Karen) Pauls and their children Gavin and Korbin; her daughter Kathy (Todd) Farrell and their children Noah, Easton, and Emma. Kay was an amazing and devoted mother and grandmother. She will be deeply missed.

We want to extend our sympathy to all, especially to John and Karen, and Kathy and Todd and your families. Aunt Kay had such a tender heart and showed her love for others in practical ways. We appreciated how she kept in touch with phone calls on special days. We also remember Aunt Kay as our family connection person, organizing get togethers and reunions. We were often recipients of her and Uncle Hugo's generous hospitality.
Special thanks to Kathy for posting the beautiful pictures. It shows how much Aunt Kay loved and was loved.
We are praying for you.

John, Kathy, and families:
My condolences to you all ... I have many fond memories of your mom.
Being from out of town, she was always our 'go to' for information, contacts and even a drop-in center for me and my friends. We always looked forward to her 'birthday' phone calls as well - she was so positive and encouraging.
I have to think that she invented friendship groups long before social media ever did!

We will miss her! Ed & Ruth

Dear Kathy, John and families,
Our deepest sympathies go out to you all at this time of loss. May our Lord be your strength during these days. I thought seeing as I got to know your mom way before you were even around I would share a memory. Everyone thinks a school is run by the principal but our school, MBCI was really run by our secretary, Miss Siemens. She was the rock of MBCI and she always knew where to get the answers even if she didn’t have them. She was a cornerstone of the whole place. Saying a prayer for you. Lori (Hildebrand) Fehr

Condolences to you all, especially John and Kathy.  I was sad to hear of Aunt Kay’s sudden illness and her passing. Aunt Kay was always very kind to me, and I have fond memories of spending the Siemens’ Christmas gathering at her and Uncle Hugo’s house. There was always so much generosity and laughter. You are all in my thoughts. She will leave an empty spot at the family table.  Love Christine Portland, OR
