    Kay was an extremely talented artist. She will be missed. Most of my childhood is filled with memories of all of the cousin being together at grandmas, on vacation, or at each others houses. She will always be remembered and loved. Prayers for Aunt Darlene Uncle Joe and the rest of the family to many to list. I LOVE YOU ALL. Sending love and light your way.

    I am so very sorry to hear of Kay‘s passing. I will always remember her loving to paint with acrylics, Such a talented artist. When we were kids she would spend the night with me and I was always shocked to see her eat cornflakes with ketchup! Also, she had to have her toast buttered completely, all four corners. A long, long time ago. Our friendship was interrupted after her family moved to Butler, Missouri. The last time I saw her was about seven years ago. She was still the same beautiful Kay I remembered going to school with. Prayers and condolences to her entire family.
