Kathleen Denise Toy

Kathleen Denise Toy, 64, born on Jan. 25, 1956, died on June 5, 2020, in Highland.

Kathleen Denise Toy, 64, was born in Fontana on Jan. 25, 1956, the third child of James and Katherine (Tait) Toy. She passed away Friday evening, June 5, 2020, in Highland.

Active in Rebekahs as a young lady, she graduated from Fontana High School in 1974. Her BS in business administration served her well as a highly respected manager at H&R Block. Kathy was most recently employed at the Amazon Fulfillment Center in Rialto. Kathy enjoyed hiking, lovely flowers and playing the ukulele; she loved and treasured her family most of all.

Much to her mother's dismay, she loved teaching her nieces and their children silly songs. Their home was always beautifully decorated for every holiday and family gatherings. Her talent for making and decorating cakes was legendary in the family.

Kathy was preceded in death by her father, James Toy, and sister, Linda Schwier.

She is survived by her loving companion of 36 years, Charles Kiel; mother, Katherine Wayne; and brother, James E. Toy (Diane). Also left to cherish her memory are six nieces, three sisters-in-law, and many great nieces and nephews.

"Kathy left us too suddenly and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her," state her family.

Private family services were held. In lieu of flowers, donations in Kathy’s memory can be directed to the city of Highland Trails Committee, Attention: Kim Stater, at Highland City Hall, 27215 Base Line, Highland, CA 92346.
