    Notes 
    • A HUGE contributor to this HOW tree!
    • From Kay Wachter's book:
      Kaye spent the first 13 years of her life in Glenwood MN until 1950, at which time the family moved to Minneapolis. After graduation from Roosevelt High School in 1954, she went on to attend Macalester College [1954-55] and the University of MN [1956-1957], concentrating on English and Religion. But the first love was always Art, along with Art History, and the majority of college work from then on was in art, with Drawing, Ink Techniques and Textile Design rating as the favourites.
      She also loves to do creative sewing, having sewn some of her own clothing since she was twelve. Sewing for granddaughters was a real joy, as was home decor. Renovating and redecorating their homes has been another pastime, particularly once son Ken became a carpenter. Ken and Kaye went to work replacing woodwork with hardwoods. Ken has built oak mantles and Kaye learned how to make her own interior panelled doors. Gary came in especially handy hanging wallpaper and doing brickwork.
      Along with the homes came the gardens. Typically, Kaye would do the design work, Gary did the "hardscape" and Kaye the "softscape". At last count, there were some 20 pallets of brick in the patio and flower beds in the Nipomo garden.
      She currently resides on the California Central Coast with her husband and dog, Sandy, and has just completed her first book, You Could Have Been A Hill, an historical and pictorial nonfiction narrative prose and reference work!
