Kathryn Marie (Kay) Bryan Cartwright Taylor, 101, of Asheboro NC, passed away on December 13, 2022 in Asheboro.
A Memorial service will be held in the Spring in Ohio.
Kay was born in Sidney, Ohio on November 3, 1921, one of seven children, to Stanley and Vida Bryan. She built a very successful career as a computer analyst at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio.
She will be sorely missed by her daughter, Kathy Wyatt of Pataskala, Ohio; her son and daughter-in-law Michael and Kathryn Cartwright; granddaughter Sarah Cartwright and great-granddaughter Afton Elliott of Sarasota, Florida; Charles Cottrell of Grand Rapids, Michigan; grandson Andrew Cartwright and great-granddaughters MacKenzie and Morgan Cartwright of Fairborn, Ohio; granddaughter Kellie Johnson of Fairborn, Ohio; great granddaughter Katie Johnson of Fairborn, Ohio; many members of Kathryn Cartwright’s large and loving family, and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, her first husband Murl Cartwright, and her second husband Dan Taylor.
Daughter of a Greek candymaker, Kay was very proud of her Greek heritage and attributed her strength and resilience to that. She was a warm, gracious woman with a great sense of humor who passed on to her children many life lessons and an appreciation of life’s many blessings. She was unfailingly optimistic, and always looked on the bright side and for the positive in others. She was a very strong woman, a great mother and a wonderful role model.
