Kathryn May

March 11, 1934 ~ June 29, 2023

It is with great sadness that the family of Kathryn May announce her passing. Kathryn passed away peacefully on June 28, 2023, in Vero Beach after a long and full life. She was the matriarch and the heart and soul of the May Family. She was predeceased by her beloved husband William May last June 2022.

Kathryn was born in New York and earned her nursing degree. She spent her entire career as a nurse caring for others. She married the love of her life William May and they celebrated 65 years of love and devotion to one another. In the 1960’s they moved to Miami with their 6 children. In Miami they became an integral and beloved part of the St. John Neuman Catholic Church where she sang as a soprano in the church choir. Kathryn was a friend to all that met her, she always had a kind word to say, an easy laugh and twinkle in her eyes.

She is lovingly remembered by her sons and daughters, Bill May Jr., Kathy May, Peter May and his wife Karen, Patti May and her husband John Carpenter, Terry Mallo and her husband Emilio, Tom May and his wife Angela and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

My sincerest condolences for the passing of your mother, Kathryn.

I know that you have many wonderful memories to keep her alive in your heart. May her gentle and caring spirit guide you in your grief and give you peace.

To the May family –

I didn’t know Kay personally, though have heard good things about her. My grandmother and Kay were cousins; I have a picture of them all up in Connelly. It is a sad thought to think that all the original cousins have since passed on, but it is comforting that they are all in Heaven reuniting and seeing each other after many years of being apart. My grandmother was Dorothy Schreiber Hartmann, who lived in North Bergen, NJ.

Please accept my sincerest condolences, I know she will be missed.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
