Kathryn Skilton

August 4, 1921 ~ November 20, 2019 (age 98)


Kathryn “Kaye” (Williams) Skilton entered her Eternal Home on Wednesday, November 20, 2019.  She was born in Waterbury on August 4, 1921 to the late Edwin and Bertha (Wheeler) Williams.  She spent her young life in Watertown.  She married Sperry Skilton in 1942 and they spent 66 very happy years together until his death in 2009.  In 1954, they moved to Cheshire.   Kathryn has resided at Elim Park Place since Sperry passed away in 2009.

She graduated from Watertown High School, attended Waterbury Hospital School of Nursing and worked various nursing positions at Elim Park, Bradley Memorial Hospital, Norwalk Hospital and various nursing homes in the area.  She and her husband did short-term missionary work in Alaska, and traveled extensively.  She had many interests and was especially active in church programs.  Her greatest interest was the Young Women in Christ Community Church in Cheshire.

Kaye is survived by several nieces and nephews and her very special nephew, Jeffrey Kellas and his wife, Tracy, who took care of her needs after the death of her husband, Sperry and son, Richard, along with their two sons, Seth and Matthew, who gave her great joy to her life through the years. 

A service of celebration that she is finally Home with her Lord and a memorial of her life will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 24, 2019 in Nelson Hall at Elim Park, 140 Cook Hill Rd., Cheshire, CT.
