I met Kay Godina several year ago when my wife, Sharon worked at Adult & Child Rehab Center in Woodstock. Kay served as the Receptionist and Office Manager. She was very well known for her smile, warm and welcoming personality, and her genuine concern for others. Kay truly possessed an "Irish Sense of Humor," always enjoying jokes and funny events. Kay was a life-long Fan and defender of her Chicago Cubs. Her faith in "her team" was rewarded with their World Series Victory in 2016. I had the honor of planning her "Retirement Roast" when she left her position at ACRC. Kay was a very good sport and claimed to enjoy all the pranks that were sent her way. Kay was a very wonderful person, a kind and supportive" Mother Hen" to every person who walked through the doors at ACRC, patriotic individual, loyal to her Catholic Faith, and gave people who knew her the feeling that things WILL WORK OUT FOR THE BEST! Her spirit will remain an inspiration to all who were fortunate to have known her. She enriched my life in many ways, I am glad to say she was my friend! Edward O'Brien,and Family, Harvard, Il.

I am remembering her sweet face at church and at Religious Education. She is someone from the St. Patrick family that I keep in my heart. We pray for her soul as well as for all of her family and friends during this difficult time.

I just want to say how sad I was to hear about the passing of Kay. My heart goes out to the whole family. There are times along life's journey that can test our spirit deeply. I'll never forget the first time I talked to Kay. I had started working on the family tree and knew I had family out there that I hadn't had any contact with for some reason since childhood. To make a long story short I wrote a letter to Kay explaining who I was. About a week later I got a phone call from her saying to me..."you bet you found the right family..where have you been? After that a doorway was opened and I was blessed with meeting this side of family. We have become close and this will always be a blessing to me! Kay answered so many family history questions for me. Sometimes with a witty sense of humor too. Kay was a good woman and I'm glad I got to to know her and spend some time with her. May God bless her and keep her in the palm of his hands. Forever she will be in our hearts. Love, Cousin Dawn
