Kathleen (Kay) was born  December 17, 1921, in Sidell, IL, to Lester and Garnett (Taflinger) Weaver.  She married the late John Childs, with whom she had two children, Phyllis J. and John R.  She later married Ross Cy Buacto in  Chicago, IL, on November 22, 1947.

Kay was preceded in death by her parents and husband Cy Buacto, and her brother and sister-in-law Keith and Beverly Weaver.

Kay had been a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church.  In her younger days Kay enjoyed golfing, gardening, rummage sales, shopping, doing word search puzzles, and keeping her home neat and clean. She loved spending time with her children, grand-children, great-grand-children and great-great-grand-children.  She also enjoyed spending time with her friends, including her special friends Rosie and Sally.  Kay was an animal lover and had two black cocker spaniels, which were both named "Pepper" that were spoiled rotten.  Later she got her first kitten which she named Angel, who was very special to her over the last several years.  Kay (Grandma) will be missed dearly by her family and friends.
