Kaye 81 of Shelton, WA passed away at 4:50pm on July 1, 2021 at Mission Healthcare in Renton, WA.
Kaye was born in Lincoln, Nebraska to Milo and Ruth Frisbee and later moved to Washington state where she raised her family and remained the rest of her life.
Kaye was a wonderful, loving lady and forever a devoted and self-less caretaker. She raised five children alone while also caring for her ill parents in her home. She had so much love to give and always put others ahead of herself. She was preceded in death by her husband’s Earl Mason and Wendell “Stu” Stewart who she married later in life and cared for them in their health decline of Parkinsons and Stroke, respectively.
She was immensely proud of her family and loved to go all out and host gatherings at her beautiful home in Shelton. Kaye was known for being a wonderful cook, creative and artistic, and loved to doodle. She enjoyed spending time looking at homes and properties and had a weakness for anything chocolate.
Kaye will forever be remembered as being incredibly kind, always caring, and thoughtful, and the matriarch of her family. She overcame many obstacles in her life and always remained strong and kept a positive attitude even in the darkest of times. She advised others to take things “inch by inch” and to cherish life as “each day is a gift”. She was known as a very- hard worker and owned several businesses throughout her work career including retail, employment services, interior design, and various real estate ventures.
Kaye also volunteered her time in different ways throughout her life as a cub scout den mother, president of the school PTA, and president of her condo association.
Kaye is survived by her five children Michael, James, David, Jon, and Teresa: her daughter in-laws Cheryl, and Jill, and son in-law Steven. She was the adoring grandmother to Dylan, Kendra, Taylor, Samuel, Wyatt, Alexis, and Mackenzie, and great grandmother to Kason and Ava. She also leaves behind her love Jack Doig, her best friend Dianne Krauss, her sweet dog Chester, her brother Jack Frisbee, and several other wonderful friends.
In remembrance of Kaye’s life, the family asks that any charitable donations be made to the American Heart Association or Hope, Inc. in her name. A celebration of life will be in September and announced later to family and friends.
