I’m so sorry for your loss. Please find solice in celebrating her life.

Kay was an amazing woman! As a neighbor, I would see her surveying her garden, checking the health and needs of her many flowers and vegetables. I loved that she was always sharply dressed, so everything matched, from her earrings to her shoes. Often, she and Bob would be color coordinated. She loved creating her wares for the Farmers Market and being involved with her church. She will be missed,but surely in heaven, telling Jesus about her wonderful children and grandchildren!

I was so sorry to hear of Kay’s passing. She was a dear friend/neighbor to my parents, Howard & Bobbie Quinn. My parents had wonderful times with Bob & Kay- playing cards or going to dinner. I always enjoyed visiting with Kay when I would see her. Now she & Mom are together laughing in heaven! Rest in peace, Kay.
