Obituary For Ada Kathryn "Kaye" Hunlock

Ada Kathryn "Kaye" Hunlock, 93 of Lima, went to her Heavenly Home on May 22, 2024, at her home with her loving daughter by her side.

Kaye was born June 19, 1930, in Delphos to Walter and Cecile (Bowers) Bilbrey, who preceded her in death. On August 17, 1961, she married Ward L. Hunlock, who preceded her in death on August 26, 2006.

Kaye worked at Dr. Pepper-Pepsi for 19 and a half years as a controller and she then worked at Koneta Rubber in Wapakoneta for six years in payroll until her retirement. She was a member of Lima Community Church of the Nazarene. She loved to read and do puzzles. Kaye was an avid quilter; she made over 150 quilts for family and friends. She was a fan of the Cleveland Browns and the Cleveland Indians and her greatest love was her family; they held a special place in her heart.

Kaye is survived by her two children, Bryan Ward (Shayne) Hunlock and Kathryn Ann Hunlock; two grandchildren, Eddie Duke (Adam) Hunlock and Wesley (Krista) Reed; two great-grandchildren, Harper Reed and Jameson Reed; brothers, George (Sally Rossfeld) Bilbrey and Greg (Deborah) Bilbrey; sisters, Mary Ann Steveley and Erline (Dale) Binkley, sister-in-law, Sandra Bilbrey and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents and husband, she is preceded in death by her brothers, Joshua "Bill" Bilbrey, Robert Bilbrey, Richard Bilbrey, Larry Bilbrey, Gary Lynn Bilbrey and Andrew Morgan Bilbrey; sisters-in-law, Helen Bilbrey, Gloria Bilbrey, Geraldine (Jerry) Bilbrey, Judy Bilbrey and Delia "Dee" Bilbrey and her brother-in-law, Larry Steveley.
