Obituary of Catherine (Feist) Fahy
Catherine (Feist) Fahy of Boise Idaho passed away in her home on Saturday, March 27, 2021 at the age of 91. She was born in Karlsruhe, North Dakota to Benedict Feist and Dorothy (Streifel) Feist. She was the eighth of eleven children.
Catherine (Kay) married Patrick (Pat) Fahy in 1949; they were married almost 60 years before Pat passed away in 2009. The first 17 years of marriage Pat and Kay welcomed six children to their family. Because of Pat's career they moved several times beginning in 1960. After moves that took the family to Minnesota, Iowa, Montana (Great Falls and Missoula), and Idaho (Twin Falls and Boise), they settled in Boise in 1969 and made Boise their forever home. After the kids were grown, Kay started working at Hewlett Packard in Boise and remained there until she retired in 1995. Kay enjoyed playing cards, bowling, walking, trips to Jackpot, and watching "The Wheel". She was a great cook, baker, and skilled seamstress. Kay had many wonderful qualities she will always be remembered for. Most memorable and endearing was her smile and quick wit.
Mom - you will forever be loved and missed by your children and grandchildren. We will miss hearing you say, "You're not gonna like this" as you lay your cards on the table and win our money!
