Kathleen “Kay” (Carmody) Williams
Kathleen Carmody Williams, 78, died peacefully at home of a recurrence of cancer on November 18, 2020. Kay was a much-loved pillar of many communities, longtime past resident of Menlo Park and devoted mother and grandmother.
Kay was raised in Palo Alto, attended Notre Dame High School in Belmont and Trinity College in Washington, D.C. She married Tom Williams in 1965; their interracial marriage was a statement of love, originality, commitment and deep spiritual conviction. Kay delighted in her family and was a gifted and natural mother, blending motherhood with many years of activism and volunteering. Some of her favorite focal points were La Leche League, the Task Force for Integrated Education, PTA, Girl Scouts, and organizing reunions for her grammar school, high school and college cohorts.
