Kay E. Salo (Hochstetler), 76, passed away Friday, February 8, 2019 at Essentia Health Virginia Care Center.

Kay was born on May 2, 1942 in Soudan, MN. She lived in Tower and Buhl for most of her living days.

She had a love for Jesus, cooking, her many fat cats and little dogs. She was always available for her family and friends, especially her grandchildren, who she loved dearly. Kay had a propensity to make friends where ever she was. One could always find her chatting in doctors offices, elevators and grocery lines with an ever ready hello and a life story.

She had innumerable special friends, including, Kenny Paulson, Jane, of her State Street Apartment family, “adopted” daughter Katie Petrosky, and too many more to mention.

Kay is survived by her sister, Viola (Don) Salo; sister-in-law, Diane Salo; brother-in-law, Willie Salo; daughter, Lisa (Paul) Neari; sons, Jon (Kari) Salo and Michael “Bucko” Salo; step-brothers, Ronnie and Raymond Hill; grandchildren; great grandchildren; nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Henna Thompson; step-father, Emil Hill; sister, Jean Thompson; ex-husband, Casey Salo; son, Randy Salo; and grandson, Casey Martin
