Catherine “Kay” Bing 1938-2018

Catherine "Kay" Bing, age 79, of Canton passed away Sunday, May 20, 2018 at Aultman Compassionate Care Center following a ten month battle with pancreatic cancer. Born in Canton, Kay was the daughter of the late Vera and Louis Demos, graduated from Lehman High School, attended The Ohio State University, and then met Richard "Dick" Bing who would become her husband of 57 years. Together, Kay and Dick raised 10 children. She was a member of the Lehman High School Alumni Association, the Lawyer's Wives Association and spent many years volunteering at the Pro Football Hall of Fame Festival Style Show. She never missed an opportunity to support her children and grandchildren at their games, meets, music recitals, and school shows. Kay's family was her top priority. Over the years, Kay became quite an avid sports fan, well-versed in football, swimming, hockey and track. She travelled the country to support the University of Tulsa football team, the James Madison swim team, and the Penn State swim team. Kay treasured all the family pool time at Branhaven and later at Hall of Fame Fitness as well as all the tailgates, vacations, weddings, birthday parties and holidays with the kids. We'll all miss her very much. Kay was preceded in death by her brother, Dr. Frank Demos, and her stepson, Anthony Bing. She is survived by her husband, Richard Bing; brothers, Paul Demos of Canton, and Nicholas (Dolly) Demos of Annapolis, MD; daughter, Elizabeth (David) Hart of Canton; sons, Christopher Bing of Canton, Barry Bing of Canton, Jason (Anne) Bing of Canton, and Matthew (Misty) Bing of Canton; grandchildren, Nicholas, Zachary, Colby, and Carly Hart, Kara, Josie, and Grant Bing, and Henry and Chloe Bing; stepsons, Andy (Shari) Bing of Canton, Rick Bing of Queens, NY, Dominick (Diana) Bing of Charlotte, NC, and Michael (Jackie) Bing of Sebring, Florida; and step-grandchildren, Claire, A.J., and Francesca. Kay was a devout member of St. Peter Catholic Church. She passed away on Pentecost Sunday as Pope Francis reflected the following: The Holy Spirit "penetrates the most unimaginable situations." His Spirit will help us to remember Kay's spirit. A special thanks to all the loving nurses and caregivers at Aultman Hospice and Aultman Compassionate Care Center.
