Tiverton, RI

Kathleen 'Kay' L. Levesque, 80, of Tiverton, Rhode Island, died on June 22, 2024. She was the wife of the late Joseph Levesque. Born in Providence, RI on June 26, 1943, she was the daughter of the late Joseph William and Agnes (Ryan) Landry.

Kay spent part of her youth in Bethel, Maine where she had some of her fondest memories learning how to bake and ski with family and friends. She later returned to Rhode Island to start a family. Her work career included A.T. Cross, Club Claiborne, Johnson and Wales, and Morris Novelty. While Kay took pride in all her careers, she was extremely proud to work at her son's coffee shop, Brewed Awakenings. Kay enjoyed Matunuck Beach, Theatre by the Sea, summers in Sand Hill Cove, and was deeply involved in St. Anthony's Church. She loved to organize social gatherings with her local community at Country View and Hancock Estates. Kay was known for lighting up the room, making everyone feel comfortable, and having a good time. If you knew Kay, you loved Kay. She will always be remembered and never forgotten.
