Kathryn, "Kay", was born on July 26, 1925, in Glens Falls, NY, the youngest daughter of Gertrude H. Wiley. After attending The George School in Newtown, PA, she attended Southern Seminary, a liberal arts college located in Buena Vista, VA.

While residing in the Trenton, NJ, area, Kay was an active member of the Junior League of Trenton. Early in life, she developed a talent in oil painting, creating many pieces throughout her lifetime.

Her husband of over 53 years, Karl J. Link, passed away in 2007. He served in the U.S. Navy during World War II and the Korean conflict. After Karl's service to the country, they lived in Louisville, KY, where he was certified as a CPA in 1953. From 1974 through 1988, they resided in Rockford, IL, until Karl's retirement from Coopers & Lybrand as the managing partner of the Rockford Office. They returned to the Louisville area, eventually settling in Naples, FL, in 1993.

In 2003, Kay and Karl moved to the Shell Point Retirement Community in Fort Myers, FL. After years of independent living, Kay resided at The Arbor before eventually transferring to the care of the staff at The Larsen Pavilion at Shell Point until her passing on November 24, 2016.

Kay is survived by her nieces, Gertrude and Julia, the daughters of her deceased sister, Florence. Also surviving are the children of Gertrude and her husband, Randy: Scott (Gina) and Kristen (Justin, and children Ryan, Alexander, and Samantha). The family fondly remembers the quick wit and entertaining humor that Kay brought to so many family events.
