Kay was my friend for 35 years. We shared many trips to the beach and my sister's cabin. She was always kind and helpful! She kept her priorities of faith, family and friends throughout her life. I am truly blessed to have known her. She finished her life unafraid of death and I am sure she is celebrated in heaven!

It brought much sadness to hear of Kay's passing. I extend my sympathy to Kay's daughters, grandchildren, family and friends.  Kay and I were friends and coworkers.  I have many fond and often humerous memories with her.  She was always willing to lend a helping hand and served others faithfully.  She was a consistent in her ways, and loved her family and friends.
