Mary M. Cation

June 21, 1956 — October 13, 2021

Mary Margaret Cation passed away peacefully at KC Hospice house on October 13, 2021, at the age of 65. Mary was the wife of Keith Williams and the daughter of the late Marjorie and John Cation, and sister of Janice Cation Reynolds. A longtime Kansas City resident (with a little Hawaii added in her younger days), she was beloved by family and friends. She attended Immanuel Lutheran School through the 8th grade and then graduated from Raytown High School.

Through the years she was an avid lake enthusiast, calling Table Rock Lake a second home. Her love of animals kept their homes full of cats and dogs. The fur babies brought energy, love, and constant entertainment to their lives. Mary was caring and generous with her time. After her father’s death, Mary was her mother’s caregiver and felt her recent death very deeply.

Mary's employment as a personal buyer for much of her career at Jacobsons and Halls on the Plaza was her forte. Over the years she developed a long list of notable clients throughout the Kansas City area. Her exceptional style was always on view as she loved to entertain, the consummate hostess. Her Halloween parties were a favorite. Another love of Mary’s was travel, with Jamaica and Las Vegas being special destinations. She created many detailed photo albums of all their trips and gatherings. She was meticulously organized, always having a box, bag or location for every item that was clearly marked. Mary was an excellent cook with a huge sweet tooth and could always be counted on to bring the best desserts, with cinnamon rolls being an all-time favorite, homemade, by her of course.

Mary will be sadly missed by her family and friends. Rest peacefully my dear, we will be toasting you for many years to come.
