Kay was born on October 26, 1964, in Havre to Vernon and Glorraine (Stiffarm) Cichosz Sr. She was raised in Havre, attending school here, and spending the majority of her time outside while not in school. After her high school years, Kay worked hard for several years before entering Northern Montana College, when she met the love of her life, Brian Buskirk. The couple married in 1987, and together, they raised their three children. Kay worked off and on during their early years together, but became a stay-at-home mom, caring for the children, their home, and her beloved Brian while they raised the children. In the early 2000s, Kay began working for the Havre School District, first as a teacher’s aide, and then as a cook, where she remained until her death.

Kay was a loving, protective, nurturing woman, who enjoyed a good joke and spending time with her family. She was a great mom, supporting her children, their friends, and her nieces and nephews in whatever they attempted. Her daughter Becca’s care was Kay’s greatest concern, and she loved spending time with her. Glacier Park and the mountains called to Kay, and she seemed most at peace while there. Drag racing and softball were two of her favorite sports, and she spent countless hours fundraising and volunteering for Special Olympics.

Kay was preceded in death by her parents, Vernon and Glorraine Cichosz Sr .; nephew LJ Morsette; niece Megan Morsette; Grandma Fincke; and brother-in-law Randy Martin.

She is survived by her husband, Brian Buskirk of Havre; children, Mellisa (Justin Shandorf) Haymaker of Shelby, Chris Buskirk of Coeur D’Alene, ID, and Becca Buskirk of Havre; four grandchildren, Reece, Brayden, Lilyann, and Bryce; siblings, Cathie Cichosz of Missoula, Vern (Debbie) Cichosz of Havre, Marcia Morsette of Great Falls, Dave Cichosz of Havre, Mark Cichosz of Havre, and Judy (John) Danaher of Virginia; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and other extended family and friends.
