Obituary for Kay (Michael) Unis

Wife of former Hopewell Township Chief of Police, Joseph Unis, beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Kay (Michael) Unis died peacefully in her sleep shortly after celebrating her 96th birthday with family and friends in Temecula, California.

She relocated to Dana Point, California to be close to her children after her husband’s death. Kay possessed boundless energy. She was an excellent cook and was happiest when she was feeding a relative or friend. She could grow anything as evidenced by the happy looking fruits, vegetables and flowers in her garden.

Her home was close to the beach and she frequently entertained her children, grandchildren, friends and relatives from out of town. When the burdens of home ownership became too great, she was lovingly cared for in her granddaughter Darla’s home in Temecula.

Education was very important to her. She insisted her children begin their adult lives with at least one college degree, though they each acquired more. She provided her family with a lifetime supply of her unconditional love and loyalty, and her family feels truly blessed. She is sorely missed.
In addition to her parents, Shaben and Jenny Michael, she was preceded in death by her husband Joseph Unis; a daughter Penny Unis Schmidt, two brothers, Thomas Michael and Steve Michael, and a sister Emily Michael.

Kay Unis is survived by her sister Rita Unis, brother Louis Michael, her three sons Joseph, Alan and Gerald Unis. She leaves ten grandchildren, Debbie Schmidt, Darla Sanchez, Lisa Pike, R.J. Schmidt, Claire Unis Benjamine, Danielle von Mayrhauser, Alec Unis, Graham Unis, Garrison Unis, and Maxwell Unis. She also leaves eleven great-grandchildren.

Friends will be received Tuesday May 29, 2018 from 2 to 4pm and 6 to 8pm in Tatalovich Funeral Home and Cremation Services Inc., CENTER TWP., 3475 Brodhead Rd., Monaca, Pa. 15061.
Family and friends will meet Wednesday May 30, 2018 at St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church in Center Twp., where a Mass of Christian Burial will be offered at 11am, with Fr. Martin Bartel, officiating.
Interment will follow in Mt. Olivet Catholic Cemetery, Hopewell Twp.
