Quilter's General Store

October 13, 2021

In loving memory

Kay Steinmetz

Our quilting community has lost a very gifted quilter, also a special friend to many of us, Kay Steinmetz. Quilter’s General Store will be closed on Saturday October 23 to attend the memorial service for her. The family wanted to let everyone know that the memorial service for Kay will be on Saturday, October 23rd at 1:30, at McCorkle Funeral Home, 767 N. Blackhawk Blvd, Rockton, IL. For those that knew her, please join family and friends as we honor her life. She leaves a great void in our Quilting community and for her family and friends.

She is truly missed.
