Obituary

Ellen "Kay" Foster Addison (Aug 22, 1934- August 1, 2020)
A memorial service will be held on August 22, 2020, 2:00 pm, at All Saints Church, Pensacola FL. Due to current restrictions for safety, there is limited seating inside the church, so they will be live-streaming the service for all to share from their home or from inside the church fellowship hall. (link to be provided) https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89097527357

Immediately following the service, a celebration of life will be held in the church fellowship hall (which will accommodate more people).
Feel free to join us in the fellowship hall to celebrate Kay's life in Kay's style!
Kay was a multi-faceted and talented woman. She was quick minded, articulate, organized and deeply passionate about the things she loved. Kay was beloved mother, wife, sister, friend, and mentor- she touched the lives of many. Her children adored her and are grateful for the lessons she imparted. Her husband, Jack Saye Addison was the perfect partner as they shared a deep and abiding love for one another.
No job was too big or unimportant to Kay, and every job was to be done well," White Glove" well! Her very dear friends of the “Mean Girls Club” were the lights of her life until her last days.
Kay was very active in local, State, and Federal politics. A dedicated Republican, she worked for the betterment of local, state, and federal policies. She served as President of Escambia Federated Republican Women’s Club, (and the club received a 5-star rating from the Florida State Republican Women, and was awarded the Outstanding Leadership Award), founded the Santa Rosa Federated Republican Women’s Club and was also President, President of Santa Rosa Republican Executive Committee and served in many capacities for the Republican HQ. She started the Strawberry Fest, which is an annual lunchtime treat in downtown Pensacola, as well as served tirelessly at festivals and fairs to help garner Republican party understanding and support.
Kay also earned the respect of those "across the aisle” for her fair-minded and broad policy beliefs. She set the standard for those who would follow her, and with her dear friend Dana Fulford, served as mentors to many of these young women. She generated interest and growth in these clubs by providing on-point guest speakers, and always keeping Republican goals and principles at the forefront, and of course, she kept speakers on task.
She was a tireless and respected volunteer, and she spent hours working for the Florida Governor and Attorney General state races. She helped her candidates – which she considered her friends- to win. As co-campaign manager for Escambia County Sheriff Morgan, another successful win, she successfully reached many, without the use of a computer or social media! With her vast array of contacts, keen understanding of issues and policies, she offered support to those seeking office, and guided many in this knowledge.
Kay was predeceased by her beloved Jack Saye Addison, and her daughter Karen Anaston Jones, and is survived by her sister Anne Foster Garner, son Kevin Anaston, his lovely wife Joy, daughters Kim and Krystal Anaston, and granddaughters Emily Rae Jones and Savannah Anaston, and nephews Gene and Randy Garner.

Although I will be unable to attend the service for Kay I want to say she will be missed by many and remembered always. Kay was a lovely, gracious lady and I am proud to have had her as a friend. My condolences go to her family and many friends.

Kay was an awesome lady...and I mean lady. She showed us all how a woman should act. She got things done, didn't let anyone walk on her, yet was a lady to the end. After all, her purse did have to match her shoes, you know! As one of the "mean girls," I (along with Martha and Barbara) got to hear it all. As the best of friends, we were there for each other and knew that no matter what happened, we would be there till the last. My Kay, I love you and remember "What said in here, stays in here."
