Kathleen (Kay) Ann Fogle died peacefully on Saturday, September 24th 2016 in Corpus Christi, Texas. Kay was born on April 13th 1939 in Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago to parents from France and Portugal. Her father left them at an early age and she spent much of her youth growing up in the Catholic Church. She immigrated to the United States in 1954 after meeting and marrying Jerry Bob Fogle of Denison, Texas, who was stationed on a naval ship off the US Waller Army Air Force Base in Trinidad. Kay was extremely proud when she became an American citizen and remained truly patriotic throughout her life.
Jerry's career working with the US military took the family to Corpus Christi, Texas in 1966. Kay began working in the food & beverage industry in Corpus and remained very active in the Catholic diocese, having the children attend both St. Patrick Catholic School and Incarnate Word Academy. She completed her career as the Director of Food & Beverage at Flour Bluff High School before retirement.
Given her youth on a Caribbean island, Kay especially enjoyed the family time of living by the water in Flour Bluff and frequenting Padre Island, Port Aransas and Mustang Island. She was an excellent cook, creating some unique dishes with a focus on seafood.
Kay is preceded in death by her beloved husband of 51 years, Jerry Fogle and her grandson, Ray Clayton Griffin. She is survived by three children, Debbie Fogle Griffin and her husband Randy Griffin of Las Vegas, Nevada; Janice Fogle Castro and her husband Victor Castro of Corpus Christi, Texas; Mark Bradley Fogle and his wife Rhonda Fogle of Singapore and San Antonio, Texas; six grandchildren, Melissa Douglas Cochran and her husband Joel Cochran of Amarillo, Texas; Anthony James Castro of Corpus Christi, Texas; and, Jade Catherine Fogle, Greer Caroline Fogle, Tucker Bowman Fogle and Keil Bradley Fogle all of Singapore and San Antonio, Texas; as well as two great grandchildren, Kenzie Marie Cochran and Brienna Lauren Cochran of Amarillo, Texas.
A viewing will be held from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm on Friday, September 30th 2016, with a rosary to be recited at 7:00 pm by Deacon Larry Rodriquez at Seaside Memorial Park & Funeral Home, 4357 Ocean Drive, Corpus Christi, Texas.
