October 5th, 2021

Anna Kay Czarnik Kirkpatrick Smith, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, friend, and aunt passed away gently after a very courageous fight with cancer. Kay was born to John and Maxine Czarnik on February 14, 1942 in Salt Lake City, Utah. She was an only child for 12 years and spent that time being loved and adored by her parents, her aunts and uncles, and her beloved grandma Elva, whom she spent many wonderful childhood hours with. Kay was the definition of creativity. Over the years she shared her amazing talents with her oil painting students who learned so much from her and her beautiful insights! Throughout the years she created many unique jewelry pieces, paintings both on canvas, and rocks, and was an inspired, and clever poet, creating a treasure trove of special writings.
Kay’s young heart was a magnet for anyone she came across. She accepted anyone and everyone, no holds barred. Kay had several jobs over the years and made lasting friendships in each one, especially her latest working at the theater. This job left her with lifelong footprints on her heart, not only from those she worked with, but from the movie goers she served! She always had loving stories to share after each night, whether it was concerning a child touching her heart, or a coworker making her night, she considered it her second family! Kay loved all animals, rocks, trees and flowers. She was a true nature lover at heart. She loved her two boys, daughters-in-law and grandchildren/ great grandchildren so much, and was so proud of them. Kay laughed at the drop of a bucket and her laughs almost always created tears pouring down her face! She also loved traveling, especially to Wendover and Laughlin, preferably on the party bus where she could interact with friends and pass out pieces of jewelry she had made. Kay had her share of trials in life. She faced each with unique bravery. She truly lived life her way, with no looking back. We love you so much Katie and we will miss you every day until we meet again! A special thank you to Whit at the cancer center at Jordan Valley hospital for going way above and beyond his expected duties in respecting her, and giving her care and loving support. Survived by sons Wade (Debbie) Kirkpatrick, Cori (Katherynn) Kirkpatrick, Grandkids Nate Kirkpatrick, Blake Kirkpatrick (Jaden), Thomas Kirkpatrick (Whitney), Delaney Armijo, Asia Hill, Quincey Kirkpatrick, Bailey Kirkpatrick White, (Alex) and seven wonderful great grandkids, and sisters Jodie (Paul) Coon, Lisa (Larry) Nunley, Anne (Bill) Brown.
