Obituary of Katherine Anne Carbaugh

Katherine “Kay” Anne Carbaugh, 77, of Glastonbury, beloved wife of Albert Carbaugh, passed away peacefully at home on Tuesday, June 25, 2024. Born on May 3, 1947, in Lewiston, Idaho, she was the daughter of the late Thomas Evan and Margaret Elizabeth (Prout) Steininger.

Kay’s early years were marked by her passion for swimming and active participation in 4H, where she earned a trip to Chicago for her exceptional cooking skills. She was an enthusiastic traveler, exploring the world alongside her devoted husband, Albert.

A dedicated member of Saint James Episcopal Church in Glastonbury, Kay volunteered her time to various causes, including the blood drive and Carol’s Closet. She also contributed to the 2nd Chance Shop, raised donations for the Women’s Shelter in Hartford, and supported Hartford’s Meal in the Park. Kay’s love for plants and animals was evident in her daily life, and she found joy in reading, walking, and teaching CCD classes.

Kay earned a Master of Science degree from Washington State University. She is survived by her loving husband, Albert, and her daughters, Joan Jaylani of Hamden, along with her children Katherine and Julia DeFrances, and Anne Fagan and her husband Patrick of Cromwell, along with their children Benjamin and Andrew. She was predeceased by her sister, Susan Cowan.
